To clarify Ian’s point about Icom, actually you need a Tait radio to be able to decode Tait handheld data (a base, or it could be another handheld) both need an interface cable/module to connect to a computer running SARTrack. Then you configure the Tait interface section in SARTrack.

Similarly if you use Icom handhelds with GPS, then you will need an Icom radio at the base end with a suitable interface to connect to a computer running SARTrack. Then you configure the Icom interface section in SARTrack.

So while in general LandSAR groups around NZ are using Tait, there are some that are using Icom.

etc

That is one of the key things about SARTrack is that you are not locked into one particular hardware option, there is support for Tait, Icom, Motorola, Hytera and some other generic interfaces such as APRS (for Amateur Radio networks), some generic GPS microphones, and also via an Internet connection the ability to support some satellite based trackers.
