Over the years, Harold has seen many changes. His original system
was analog. Later it was upgraded to DMR digital and most recently
to P25 digital as a part of a regional program known as ARCS (Alabama
Regional Communications System). The new radios averaged around
$2,000 each for portables. The old UHF portables, used in the
schools, were less than $300 each and still in good working condition
when the change to P25 was made. Changing the in-school radios,
with about a half dozen per school, was looking like a very expensive
proposition. That's when Harold came to us and asked if we could
provide some kind of "bridge" that would allow the new
expensive P25 bus radios to talk to the much less expensive UHF
in-school radios. We did, with a device known as a BridgeBox.
You can learn more about it at info4u.us/BridgeBox.pdf.
For now, let's just say that a single BridgeBox serving virtually
unlimited numbers of less expensive UHF analog or DMR radios cost less
than a single P25 portable radio! BTW, Harold also worked with us
in developing a low cost means of monitoring power failure or repeater
malfunctions on remote mountaintop antenna sites. Additional
information is available at info4u.us/saso.pdf.
Thanks for visiting with us.
We look forward to serving you!
