Innovative handset

Managing and operating your networks has never been easier or more efficient. With Codan’s simple yet advanced handset you can access and program all features, functions and hotkeys.

Emergency selcall

When safety is at risk and every second counts, you can use the NGT VR to automatically send a distress signal to pre-selected stations – at the press of a single button.

Multiple channels

The NGT VR provides up to 20 channels.

Easy installation

Codan’s NGT VR is small, convenient to mount, and easy to install in fixed and mobile environments.

Smart monitoring

While the radio is muted you can monitor a variety of channels, and calls can be received on any of the scanned channels.

High dynamic range Rx

The high dynamic range of the NGT receiver provides better reception in harsh conditions.


Easitalk® is a Digital Signal Prosessor that minimises interference and reduces noise to provide the clearest communications of any available HF transceiver.

Calling facilities

The NGT VR comes standard with selective calling and optionally supports phone calling, and remote diagnostics and configuration.


ALE is available as an option to automatically select the best channel, at any time of the day and from the moment the transceiver is switched on.

Rugged and reliable

As with all Codan equipment, the NGT VR series transceiver is a rugged and reliable unit that thrives in extreme conditions, and comes with a full three year warranty.
