Our Repeater Controllers
We believe that our repeater controllers have the best price/performance ratio
in the industry. Besides good value, there are several good technical reasons
to choose NHRC:
- Electrically quiet design
Our controllers feature a "bus-less" design. This dramatically
reduces EMI and the consequent interference problems and noise that can come
with conventional microprocessor-based controllers.
- True Speech
Speech synthesizers sound so eighties. Many of our repeater
controllers offer true speech that sounds much more natural and
intelligible than old-fashioned speech synthesizers.
- Status Display LEDs
All of our controllers, except the NHRC-2, have status display LEDs that
make controller installation and setup a snap.

This is our very smallest controller. It can be used as a conventional
repeater controller, an IDer, or a beacon controller. It measures
2" X 1 1/4", allowing it to be installed almost anywhere with
After 15 years, we could no longer get the parts for the NHRC-2 any
more. We sold thousands of NHRC-2s, so it was a tough thing
for us to try to top it. We think we did with the NHRC-2.1: it's the
NHRC-2 with twice the voice storage, plus a real CTCSS input and fan
control output. The NHRC-2.1 continues the tradition of the NHRC-2,
an inexpensive repeater controller with 4 stored voice messages.
Available as a partial kit or assembled and tested.
We've continued to enhance one of our most popular repeater controllers,
making it even more powerful and easier to use.
The NHRC-3.1 has 8 real speech messages you record,
diagnostic status LEDs, a CTCSS input, multi-tone courtesy
tones, a fan control output, two digital outputs, two courtesy
tone select inputs, NHRC's unique audio test feature,
simpler, more user-friendly DTMF programming,
and free Windows-based programming software.
The NHRC-3.1 can control a full-duplex, simplex, or link repeater.
- Our inexpensive linking repeater controller, as seen in the September
1998 issue of 73 Amateur Radio Today. Available as both a
partial kit and assembled and tested.
A linking repeater controller with real stored speech, digital I/O,
an auxiliary audio input, etc. A highly integrated design,
with state-of-the-art components, results in a powerful, reliable,
but still affordable, repeater controller.
The NHRC-7 is a true dual-port bridging repeater controller. It can be used
for two duplex repeaters, a duplex repeater with a link radio, or to
build a bi-directional cross band repeater with simplex radios.
This allows a variety of unique applications, including inter-system
radio bridges. Each port can have it's own ID message, or no ID at
all, making the NHRC-6 ideal for interoperating with IRLP systems. The
NHRC-7 includes a dedicated control receiver port,
digital inputs and outputs, and flexible CTCSS encoder control.
