JPS Communications, a Raytheon company, has improved its SNV-12 Signal-and-Noise Voter to further enhance flexibility and value. The SNV-12’s new, software-enabled features include a variable Vote Lock onset delay timer and the ability to reduce the pilot tone detection sensitivity. A voter is a communication device that ensures high-quality radio signal transmission, rebroadcast, and reception across its network. The SNV-12 uses individual digital signal processors to continuously select the receiver with the best signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) from multiple sources. The SNV-12 then provides the best SNR, or “voted,” output to a dispatcher and/or to a repeater for rebroadcast across its network so that all users can hear the best signal each time they communicate.
