Clear Communication

With the latest audio processing technology and in-built speaker, the MD785 offers you outstanding audio quality in loud environments and near the boundary of radio coverage

Analogue or Digital

It is possible to configure both analogue and digital channels. This enables the user to utilise mix mode scan and switch between the two, making it simpler to migrate to digital

Packed with Functionality

Besides the traditional communication features, the MD785 offers numerous digital functions, including text messages, GPS (optional) and safety features such as lone worker alert and emergency call

Intuitive Operation

The high-resolution LCD screen offers a clear display, even under difficult light conditions. The large keyboard and ergonomic programmable keys facilitate efficient and productive communication

Versatile Applications

Combine the MD785 with your systems to automate actions (telemetry) or expand your communications solution with Hytera XPT Trunking (Tier III) to maximise your channel management


Created with Sketch. Telemetry

Allows the monitoring and control of external devices via the radio.

Created with Sketch. Priority Interrupt

Send a priority transmission to interrupt other calls, ideal for important, critical messages.

Created with Sketch. Intelligent Audio

Combining noise cancelling technology to remove nusiance noise from the transmission, delivering clear communications.

Created with Sketch. Priority Scan

Allows the radio to automatically scan and switch the user to receive a priority call if transmitted.

Created with Sketch. Pseudo Trunking

Using pseudo-trunking, a Hytera patented technology, slots can be shared to improve capacity usage with transmissions either direct to device or to a repeater.

Created with Sketch. XPT

Hytera XPT (Extended Pseudo Trunking) enables you to use limited spectrum resources more efficiently, dynamically assigning channel resource without needing a dedicated control channel.

Hytera Md785 G 01 Front

Created with Sketch. Lone Worker

The Lone Worker feature uses a timer in the radio to measure inactivity. If the timer expires, a warning is issued, and if there is no response to that, the alarm is triggered.

Created with Sketch. Emergency Mode

Raise an alarm with top priority to a base station or to other radios with the pre-programmed emergency mode, identifying the ID of the person issuing the alarm.

Created with Sketch. GPS

(G) version only (via separate antenna), enabling location based services to improve safety and control.
