UHF/VHF Rack Mountable Base Station

While all of Raveon’s M7 series radios will work as base station, repeater or transponder, the RV-SMB features a 1U rack-mountable 19” high-speed UHF or VHF network attached radio modem chassis, with redundant 5 watt radio modems, redundant power supply, and GPS transponder receiver which interoperates with the M7-GX line of GPS radio modems.

Features include:

  • 2-Port terminal server.
  • Automatic RF output switching.
  • Dual GPS RF connections, enabling hot-standby of GPS-enabled radio modules.
  • Redundant radio module, which can be configured in reserve-standby mode (backup radio is powered down until it is needed)
  • hot-standby mode (backup radio is always powered)



  • Size: 482.6mm X 45.0mm X 375.0mm
  • Weight: 18 lbs
  • Radio Module Serial Communication Rates (programmable): 9600, 14400, 19200, 38400, 115200
  • Operating temperature range: -10°C to +55°C
  • Storage temperature range: 0ºC to +50ºC
  • Internal fuse: 6A
