Our business is getting the word out - to you, for you!


Collaborating might better be described as the process of working together to accomplish a singular objective. In order to accomplish this goal, we have to communicate with each other, quickly, reliability, and economically. The tool that makes all this possible is wireless airtime free communications.  Nothing does it better than commercial grade 2-way radio!  The question is  what kind of radio, at what price, from whom, and how to decide what is best for YOU?  That's what this web page is all about.  Let's collaborate!


Over 90% of the radios used in Business and Industrial (B&I) communications are personal hand held models, mostly operating in the UHF or VHF frequency bands.  You now have a choice of analog radios or digital radios from either of two American manufacturers with the rest being made mainly in China, Japan, and Korea, and Malaysia.

The majority of digital radios utilize the DMR standard.  There are other standards - FHSS, NXDN, P25, and TETRA which are rarely used by B&I users. For additional information on these standards, please click here.

There are five basic user groups - Convenience (mainly indoor use), Utility (general purpose VHF well suited for outdoor use), Operational (plants, warehouses & outdoor), Mission Critical (generally the majority of these are UHF analog with the largest percentage of digital radios being safety related), and Executive (special features desirable) .  Cost, size, performance, and operating cost is directly proportional to the type of use.  The following is a general overview.
