Here we will provide you with some
information about this outstanding new product.
The very first samples of the PTC-IIe were introduced by Dr. Thomas Rink, the president and CEO of SCS, at the PACTOR forum at the Dayton hamvention.
The e in the PTC-IIe stands for economy. This means the PTC-IIe is a subset of the well-known SCS PTC-II.
It uses the same command set as the PTC-II and can be controlled with the same programs. It utilizes WA8DED-hostmode, extended and CRC-hostmode.
It should be stated clear that there is no difference in performance between the PTC-II and the PTC-IIe in any of the common modes. It shall be a lower cost solution for those who don´t need the multi-port, crossband and gateway capabilities of the PTC-II. The PTC-IIe also does not have transceiver-control and the alphanumeric mode-display.
Here are the key features of the PTC-IIe:
|PACTOR-II, PACTOR-I, AMTOR, NAVTEX, RTTY|
With spectroscope display on the tuning display.
All different kinds of SSTV. Useable with nearly all available software.

|Mark and space frequencies are freely programmable in 1 Hz steps.|
|Output amplitude programmable im mV steps.|
|The new OFF command
turns the unit off by software.
Any character sent to the PTC-IIe over the serial interface will switch it on again.
|The PTC-IIe uses the same high performance CPU/DSP system as the PTC-II.|
