Inrico TM-7 Video Demo

The Inrico TM-7, branded BN500 by Broadnet, looks great in the car. Its small dimensions allow an easy and stylish installation.

The BN500 version is locked to Broadnet, which means you can not install apps like Zello or TeamSpeak to use with the IRN.

So the best option, really, is to buy the original Inrico TM-7 sold by network-radios.com, with pure Android, so you can install any app from the Play Store.

You can watch some other videos of the Inrico TM-7 below.

Echolink, IRN (TS3) and Zello at the same time

As many of you, who use Echolink (after v1.5.3) and the IRN, know that most of the android radios’ PTT will activate Zello automatically even if you are on TeamSpeak, which can be very annoying. The truth is that Zello, after version 3.53, added such annoying functionality.

One of the workarounds was to assign the PTT button to IRN (Team Speak3) and the SOS button to Zello. Well, we can live with that, but how could we bypass this problem with the new Inrico TM-7 (that only has the PTT button on the mic)?

The solution for the TM-7 and all other network radios, and while Zello does not remove this stupid function (or at least to allow the user to decide to turn it ON or OFF), is as simple as to install Zello v3.53 on our devices and the problem is solved.

Remember to disable Auto-Updates or else, you will get the new version installed again. One good practice, is to keep a local copy of the Zello v3.53 on your android radio so you can install it again and again. It just takes a few seconds and the user data will be preserved.

Which Network Radio to choose?

«Network radios» is a new concept in hamradio. No matter where you go, you can still be in touch with your ham friends. All you need is to connect to the IRN – International Radio Network, that functions as a gateway to the live RF world. The IRN offers a plenitude of channels across the world and it is free to use. However, you are required to hold a valid hamradio license if you want to transmit on hamradio channels, as your transmission will be heard on live repeaters. To make things more exciting, like in the old days, manufactures started to build Android Transceivers, where you can install apps like TS3, or Zello, that offer connectivity to the IRN. Such net transceivers, or network radios, come with a nice PTT button, so you just operate them as any conventional radio. But… Is this hamradio? Read this article.

So, which network radio to choose? There are several types… Let’s see the options.

If you want a simple, but high-quality one, without any RF module, then you will find the Radio Tone RT4 a great choice: It is 4G, GPS tracking system, amazing audio and Android 6.0.

It has a lasting 4600 mAh battery giving you several days of continuous operation. The RT4 has the best specifications on its category.

Just arrived to the market, the Talkpod N58 is 3G compliant, it offers US and EU versions, brings an amazing design, very compact and has a superb audio quality. The Talkpod will become, for sure, a best seller in its segment.

A brand new mobile network radio is the Inrico TM-7. It’s the first 3G Android mobile radio. It became a best-seller since the first day.

If you want something more hybrid, I mean, a network radio with an RF module too, then you want to take a look into the Inrico T298s.

The T298s comes in two different versions: VHF and UHF. It offers an output power of 2 Watt and it’s a great gadget to carry when travelling. You will always be connected. If a nearby repeater is not available, you just have to switch into the IRN or Echolink via WiFi or 3G connection. It is a very robust device, that offers IP54 protective design with a military quality.

If you want the supreme, then you have to take a look into the RFinder M1 or the new RFinder K1. It is much more than a network radio. It does DMR, and FM analogue. It’s all a matter of what you need and can afford. One thing is for sure. Hamradio is changing. As always.

Do you have antenna restrictions?

So, you are an amateur radio enthusiast. You just moved in into a new apartment and came to the conclusion that your neighbours won’t let you install an antenna on the roof.

Well, that’s ok. You are still excited with the new home, so you decide to just stick to your old FM handheld. You go close to the window and start trying to hit all the repeaters in the area. You don’t hit a single one. Already desperate, you stick your arm outside the window, set the HT to full power, and still, nothing. You can hardly hear a transmission.

Don’t dispare. You are not alone. This has happened to many other hams across the world. If you really like hamradio for the essence of having QSO’s with other hams and discuss about technology, you can still use the IRN – The International Radio Network.

This system is connected to several hamradio RF channels across the world and you can stay in touch with the community. All you need is WiFi connection, or a 3G/4G data plan and you are connected. Note that you need a valid hamradio license if you want to transmit on IRN.
It’s fun. It’s still hamradio! (unless you think that hamradio is only CW – Don’t let others tell you what is and what is not hamradio. Think for your self. Enjoy the hobby! We are not in the 60’s anymore)

Hamradio is what you want it to be!
