In the last decade, the world has been inundated by natural disasters, and man-made incidents of a magnitude not seen in many decades, leading to a loss of hundreds of thousands of lives, destruction of millions of homes and buildings and the complete ruin of critical infrastructures. These tragic events increase the recognition that impaired or lost communications coupled with a lack of real time access to critical information, can dramatically reduce the ability to recover from such disasters. During such events, most of the conventional communications infrastructures such as telephone lines, cellular phones, satellites and other two- way radio communications are either saturated or not operational. Many levels of government and public safety recognize that HF-SSB communication are paramount for providing vital logistics and command and control support during major emergencies.

The HF/SSB transceiver systems operate in the 1.6 to 30 MHz frequency range. The radio receives and transmits Voice, Data, and Telegraphy (CW) using upper sideband (USB), lower sideband (LSB), amplitude modulation equivalent (AME) and ISB (Independent Sideband for high speed data transmission).

The radios compile with all MIL-STD-810 and EMI requirements, and meets FCC, NTIA, and Industry Canada standards. They have been tested by DOD's Joint Interoperability Test Center (JITC) and certified for compliance with the ALE requirements in MIL-STD-188-141B.

The radio system can be controlled and operated from a remote location. There are several remote control options, ranging from a removable control head with hard wire interface, or IP connection for in building or around the world.

HF/SSB Radio System Features

  • Automatic Link Establishment per FED-STD-1045 & MIL-STD-188-141B Appendix A (JITC certified) standards.

  • Full interoperability with other manufacturers' radios complying with the same ALE standards.

  • Built-in voice quality system utilizes proprietary algorithms to filter out background noises, giving users exceptional communication clarity.

  • Selectable bandwidth allows fine tuning for optimal voice and data communications.

  • Multiple squelch options (signal strength, digital voice, or call detection).

  • Control head features a large color touch-screen display.

  • Upgrading to future technologies is easily done by installing new firmware into the transceiver.

  • Easily replaceable digital components ensure cost-effective maintenance.

  • Unique Built-In self Test (BIT) system provides exceptional dependability.

  • AMD (Automatic Message Display) for free and pre-set text messages.

  • Supports all modes of operation: Data, USB, LSB, AME, ISB, CW

Royal Communications International received a 98 on Duns and Bradstreet’s past performance evaluation.


June-July 2017, pilot Brian Lloyd commenced his round-the-world flight to commemorate Amelia Earhart’s route eighty years ago in 1937. The two month flight followed Earhart’s historic equatorial route. Royal Communications International, Inc. was honored to support Brian throughout his expedition.

“I chose the Micom3T transceiver for my historic recreation of Amelia Earhart's flight due to its robust construction and outstanding reputation for reliability in a harsh environment. While the control head is mounted in the cabin and lives in a more benign environment, the receiver/transmitter unit resides in an unheated and unpressurized avionics bay where the temperature may vary from +45C to -20C and the altitude may top 24,000 feet. In spite of this harsh environment the Micom3T performed well.

But even the best equipment can fail and I did experience an intermittent failure of the receiver/transmitter unit. A single call to Royal Communications had a replacement unit on its way to me on the other side of the world in a day. Clearly the emphasis was to get my communications back up and running reliably as quickly as possible. I am extremely pleased with the level of support I received. The replacement unit operated and continues to operate reliably.

I recommend Royal Communications and Micom products without any reservation. They provide excellent service, great support, and reliable products. Thanks Royal!” - Brian Lloyd

"We have operated thirty Micom 3F radios for the past 5 years. They are online 24 x 7 x 365 and we have experienced very few problems, all of which were handled quickly by technical support. The ease of use is unsurpassed and operator training takes only a few minutes. We also have sixteen Micom 3T radios that are used occasionally and have had zero issues.

These are rock solid performers that tolerate less than perfect SWR and environmental conditions. We would buy them again if we expanded our system."

“This letter is to confirm that our organization has purchased nearly 1500 Micom high frequency single sideband (HF-SSB) radio products since we were first introduced to them in the mid 1990’s. These radios are used for Base Stations, Vehicular Mounted Mobiles, and Rapid Deployment Packages, and are currently deployed across the continental United States, Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The radios have performed extremely well in our networks over the last decade in both the Conventional and Automatic Link Establishment (ALE) Modes. The units are easy to use from an operator’s perspective, and are easy to install and repair from the maintainer’s perspective. Of particular significance is the Technical Support from Mobat USA, which has also been exemplary over the years.

Please accept my congratulations on producing a truly outstanding product.”

“We have purchased several thousand Micom HF radios and ancillary devices from Elbit Systems over the past ten years. In addition we have utilized their technical assistance on numerous occasions. In all instances the service and products provided have been excellent. Any assistance we required with configuration or installation has been addressed in a professional and timely manner. We purchase their products and services on a regular basis and plan on continuing to do so in the future. We have Mobat HF systems installed in more than 260 locations worldwide and are completely satisfied with the products and services offered.”

“While I was the director of the Idaho Bureau of Disaster Services, the bureau had occasion to purchase the Micom radio with Automatic Linking Establishment (ALE) feature both for the State of Idaho and for our forty-four counties. I found the radio to be of very high quality and easy to use.

Given the number of natural disasters that have occurred this year, not only here in the United States, but globally as well, I am reminded of the need for a backup radio system that is capable of automatic operation. Certainly the Micom radio answered that need.

Since I was both the bureau’s director and its Communications Officer, I wanted you to know that I was very satisfied with the great performance of the Micom radio and more importantly, with the service that I received from you personally and from Mobat USA. “
