Hytera RD965VHF B 01

 Outdoor DMR repeater 

RD965 is Hytera's first digital/analog repeater for outdoor use that is compatible with the DMR standard. Thanks to its compact design, the device is very handy and can be used in a number of application scenarios, whether carried on your back, mounted on a wall or installed in an equipment rack.

Slimline & portable

52mm high

16 Channels

Channel capacity

IP67 Rated

Exceptional performance in harsh conditions



The GPS module enables emergency control rooms to monitor the location of a small radio network in real-time if the repeater is being used as a mobile unit.

Small backup battery (optional)

The 10 Ah lithium-ion battery can support at least eight hours of operation at a duty cycle of 50% and boasts a high transmitting power as an emergency power supply for outdoor operation and mobile use. RD965 is compatible with the SMBus 1.1 standard and can monitor battery statuses, such as the estimated remaining capacity. Intelligent charging management enables the battery to be charged automatically for later use. The three-stage battery protection enhances the safety and reliability of the charging process.

Repeater diagnostics and control system

Using a PC-based application, it is possible to monitor, diagnose, and control remote repeaters (via the IP interface with a network connected) and local repeaters (via USB port). Hytera's RDAC software supports network access at multiple points and enables the administrator to monitor two-way radios registered in the DMR radio network.

Voice input/output via dual timeslots: ideal for monitoring and voice recording

The device supports voice input and output via dual timeslots in digital mode and enables users to continuously record conversations.

Flexible networking

By connecting geographically distributed repeaters that run at the same or different frequencies to form an IP-based and location-independent wireless communication network, mobile radios can use voice and data services even when in roaming mode. The RD965 can be used with the RD985 in a repeater network.
