Alinco DR-605TQ

The Alinco DR-605TQ 2M/440 FM mobile rig quickly became a winner. The EJ-24U CTCSS Encode/Decode is standard in this "Q" version. You get memory channels to spare; 50 selections plus a CALL channel for each band (100 total). Store odd-splits, cross-band, settings, repeater offsets, CTCSS tones, simplex and even extended receive frequencies (like NOAA weather) in any of the memory channels.

You can transmit on one band and receive on the other. Operate cross-band in full duplex (simultaneous transmit and receive). The DR-605TQ can also be used as a temporary cross-band repeater for special events or emergency use. No modifications are needed for packet operation. The DR-605TQ comes ready to work packet on either or both bands. Dedicated 9600 bps packet connections are on the rear panel. An internal antenna duplexer is featured to allow you to connect your DR-605TQ directly to a dual-band antenna. You save by not having to purchase a duplexer or an extra antenna (plus coax and connectors). It's another way the DR-605TQ gets you on the air for less!

The display can show frequency and memory or you can simplify operations with the DR-605T's "Channel Only" display. Channel selection is easier for the new operator and a time-saver during emergency operations. Scan the VFO or Memory Channels in ascending or descending order. Choose the scan "hold" with "timed" or "busy frequency" hold. Adjustable "Time Out" Timer, essential for packet and repeater operations. Choose the maximum amount of time the DR-605TQ will transmit. There is no guesswork! Know at a glance which band is receiving a signal. Glows green on receive and red when you transmit on either band. The DR-605 features a set and forget squelch. There are no squelch knobs to accidentally bump "open" or too high when adjusting volume. Squelch for each band is set by you and stays at that setting electronically, not mechanically, until you wish to adjust it.

The DR-605TQ comes with a mobile mounting bracket, the EMS-54 Electret Condenser DTMF Hand Mic, DC cord, mounting hardware, mic clip and informative manual.

The original Alinco DR-605T version was the same but did not included the EJ-24U factory installed.
