Multicast Vote Scan capable KNG Series radios automatically select the best site to operate from in a wide area system. Channels in the multicast conventional system are added to the scar list and designated as “voted” channels. The KNG Radio scans all voted channels and selects the channel with the best signal.

AES/DES/OFB Encryption

AES and DES (Digital Encryption Standard) allows you to communicate with other radios that have the specific key programmed. RELM’s AES/DES Encryption is NIST certified, validated FIPS 140-2 Type III encryption with a 256 key load.
