The Amcom ™ II Series 2820A diver communication radio system is a full featured hard wire, two diver communicator. The 2820A models have a single earphone volume control for diver’s volume (down-link) and a single volume control for the tender (up-link).
All Amcom ™ II series communicators have Push-to-Talk and separate isolated inputs for each diver. The Amcom ™ II Series portable communications system delivers 20 watts ”voice power”; operating from internal batteries or external 12 VDC power source. Models with the /23 or /24 option can be operated from either a 110/220 VAC, external 12 VDC power source, or an internal 12 VDC battery. All Amcom ™ II Series communicators have the capability of 2-wire and/or 4-wire communication modes. 2-Wire and 4-wire modes can be used simultaneously.
The Amcom ™ II Series communicator has the ability to work with both dynamic and pre-amplified microphones in either 2-wire or 4-wire modes. The circuit detects the type of microphone that each diver is using then automatically switches from the pre-amp mode to dynamic mode, adjusting the specific diver’s gain (volume). The tender’s volume is set louder than the diver’s volume. This allows the tender to hear the diver in a noisy environment while maintaining the diver’s volume at a comfortable level.

All communicators will transfer topside noise to the diver when using the radio speaker only. To eliminate background noise and achieve clear communications, use a Push-to-Talk microphone, headset, or a Remote Walk-and-Talk with a headset.
