HF COMMUNICATIONS
 
Government and private organisations are continually searching for the most flexible, reliable and cost effective solutions for their remote, emergency and security communications needs. Surprisingly perhaps, HF radio provides a great range of options and has several important advantages over other communication media. HF radio will never replace fixed and mobile telephony as the first communication option for the general public, but for organisations involved in emergency, remote and military communications it is a vital and irreplaceable wireless communication tool.
 
LONG RANGE CAPABILITY
Whilst VHF and UHF radio is also commonly used for short range line-of-sight (LOS) communications, only HF is capable of communicating over distances of 3000 km or more.
 
FULL MOBILITY
Unlike conventional, Voice Over IP (VoIP), cellular and satellite telephony, which all rely upon land-based infrastructure, an HF radio network requires minimal infrastructure. As such it is often the only reliable means of communication when disaster strikes.
HF radio is simple and quick to deploy and provides communication capability for users no matter where they are. Fixed base stations can be used to communicate with other bases or to provide command and control for mobile (vehicle-mounted) and portable (manpack) users in the field.
 
LOW COST OF OWNERSHIP
Compared with satellite telephony, the most common alternative technology for communications of last resort, HF radio is the economical choice. Once the initial investment in equipment is made, there are no call costs or ongoing monthly line or equipment rentals. Also, HF radio equipment is built tough to withstand extreme conditions, which proves to be very cost-effective.
HF radio can be used to communicate with existing VHF and UHF radio systems, cellular telephones and land-based telephones through developments in cross-patching technology that make this as easy as dialling a telephone number.
