The right solution for you

Codan’s 2110 HF transceiver is an all purpose and fully self contained manpack radio. It is designed to meet your long distance and remote communications needs while on the move, and can quickly be deployed.

We’ve gone to great lengths to ensure our manpack is extremely light, rugged, comfortable to carry, and packed with easy to use features. It is ideal for all types of terrain and weather conditions. With a range of antennas, backpacks and battery types, the 2110 can be confi gured to suit your mission.

Built to last

Codan radios are famous for their ruggedness and reliability, and the 2110 is no exception. It’s the most rugged radio we’ve ever built and complies with the toughest environmental standards including MIL-STD-810F. The radio and battery compartment are completely waterproofed and can be fully immersed.

Intelligent Battery Management

A radio’s battery management system and mission life lie at the heart of successful portable communications. That’s why Codan’s 2110 delivers the lowest current consumption available so you can operate continuously on a single battery charge for several days. Our Intelligent Battery Management System cleverly monitors and displays the battery capacity and condition, and also protects the battery by preventing it from being overcharged. Battery protection reduces your ongoing costs by extending battery life even further and removes the need to carry extra batteries.

Digital Voice

Codan's second generation Digital Voice technology provides a quantum leap in HF voice  communications. A full digital mode coupled with highly optimised vocoder technology provides voice quality similar to that experienced with cellular phones. Optional AES-256 encryption can be added to deliver a fully secure, high quality voice capability.

Communications made easy

The 2110 shares a common friendly user-interface with Codan’s NGT series transceivers, which minimises training time and expenses. It operates seamlessly with our NGT series, plus other commercial and military grade radios.

Our radio also features a fully integrated fast antenna tuner that automatically selects tuning modes, antenna types and initiates the tuning cycle. With Codan’s large and clear operating display, self-test capabilities, and advanced calling facilities, the 2110 is easy to operate and maintain for any user.

Superior support

Codan’s 2110 is backed by a renowned worldwide support network and an industry leading three year warranty.
