Recon G1

The Recon G1 is an affordable, flexible solution for portable comms.

Recon G1 RC EMPTY ISO MASKED 2mb

Recon shown with an empty radio bay, ready for a rig to be installed.

 

Designed to be compatible with a wide range of radios, the Recon G1 incorporates the same basic functionality as our Operator and Scout.

A rugged system that fits securely within a 50 caliber ammo can, yet slides in or out without tools.

CNC machined HDPE chassis, electrically isolated from the metal ammo can.

 

Recon G1 RC JetStream JT 27 01 2mb

Recon G1 shown with the JetStream JT-27 installed.

 

Power comes from the included 108 WH AGM battery, which is replaceable without tools, and is a standard UB1290.

The Recon G1 is also compatible with drop-in LiFePO4 cells, like this one.

 Internal, three-stage solar controller that handles up to 50 watts of solar input.

The AC charger is included.  It stows away in the chassis, out of sight but easy to get to when needed.

Voltmeter and ammeter so you can monitor power usage.

Powerful 3 amp USB port for powering and charging peripheral devices.

 


See the introduction video, below:

 


The standard Recon G1 uses a 50 caliber ammunition can.  The Deep Recon option uses a ‘tall’ 50 caliber can and a chassis extension.


Many small radios, like the Jetstream JT-27, easily fit in the standard Recon.  Other, deeper radios, like the Yaesu FT-8900R, need the extra space created with the Deep Recon option.  Measure your radio, including protrusions, to see which is the best choice for you.


Standard Recon radio bay:  5.75″ wide, 1.675″ tall, and 6.5″ deep.

Deep Recon radio bay:  5.75″ wide, 1.675″ tall, and 9.25″ deep.

Recon G1 RC Yeasu 8900 R 01 2mb 1024x598

Front mounted headphone jack for silent operation or noisy environments.

Switch-activated cooling fan directs are directly against the underside of an installed radio.
