    Product description

      360grad Icon

      With new software: As a result of legal patent litigations, the TDMA direct mode was removed for digital operation. With the Hytera patented Pseudo Trunking two parallel calls in direct mode are still possible.

      The PD505LF is a digital PMR446 radio that was developed according to the open DMR standard. It is thus one of the first DMR Tier I radios worldwide. Form and design are based on the classic Hytera radios.

      Support of analog and digital mobile radio

      The PD505LF was developed in compliance with the ETSI Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) standard. The handheld radio supports license-free operation according to DMR Tier I. It can also be operated as an analog radio.

      Ergonomic design

      The PD505LF handheld radio is easy to operate and highly reliable, which is indispensable in critical situations.

      Individual button design

      The two rotary buttons of the radio transceiver are separated by the antenna. This design prevents operating errors.


      The PD505LF meets all requirements of the open DMR ETSI standard (ETSI-TS 102 361-1, -2, -3), the MIL810-C/D/E/F/G standard and degree of protection IP54. Thus excellent features are offered even under harsh operating conditions.


      • Protection against dust and moisture in accordance with IP54
      • TDMA direct mode for DMR: Two independent conversations can be held simultaneously on one frequency.
      • VOX
      • Hytera basic encryption with 40 bit
      • Status LED: The status LED shows if the radio is sending, receiving, scanning, or if the battery is empty, for example. Use the radio programming to disable individual status displays.
      • Programmable button that can be assigned two functions. These functions can be selected by pressing or pressing and holding.
