Orwigsburg council approves 2 Way Radio purchase for communications system update

So to resume my run of content pieces on this website, I have decided to share one of my favorite posts this week. I used to be hesitant to include it to a website because I really didn’t want to offend the original author, but I hope he/she is glad that I enjoyed reading their work and wanted to share it with my readers.
The borough council approved the purchase of six Two way Radios to use with the recent emergency communications system updates to the police department at a cost of $27,000 at its Wednesday meeting.
Under new federal regulations, the county’s emergency management communications network must be converted to a narrowband frequency to make it more efficient. The county is in the process of complying with Federal Communications Commission-required upgrades to emergency communications.
The borough ordered six Motorola APX6000 radios from Green’s Communications, Pottsville, on Friday. Three 2 way Radios will be placed in the cars and three are for officers to carry.
The radios could take four weeks to arrive, borough Manager Mike Lonergan said.
In other news, the council also voted to approve a proposal by the Exeter Ambulance Association, Berks County, for two Automated External Defibrillators.
The cost for the AEDs is $4,200. They will replace one for the police department that is at least 10 years old, Lonergan said.
Also at the meeting, Lonergan said he will apply for a $40,000 grant through the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources for new playground equipment at Community Memorial Hall, mulch and other park maintenance.
The playground equipment that is in good shape, such as the jungle gym, merry-go-round and seesaw, would not need to be replaced. However, the swing set is about 20 years old and could be removed or relocated to another park in the borough, Lonergan said.
The deadline to apply for the grant is Wednesday, and the borough could know by the fall if the grant is awarded. A $20,000 match by the borough would be required and would be paid through by funds designated for recreation use.
In other council action, approval was granted for Lonergan to prepare a final agreement between the borough and Schuylkill County Municipal Authority for the supplemental operation and maintenance services for the borough water and wastewater systems after review by the borough solicitor Frank Tamulonis and an engineer from SCMA.
The cost to the borough for the service is $1,850 per month and would likely start this month. The borough previously gave approval to execute a memorandum of understanding with the authority to provide the aforementioned support.
The council also authorized Tamulonis to advertise an ordinance for declarations of taking or using eminent domain to obtain easements for the safe routes to schools project if necessary. The project would involve curbs and sidewalks from downtown Market Street to Blue Mountain Elementary East along Red Dale Road for a total of about 1,200 feet, Lonergan said.
The borough was awarded a $303,000 grant in 2009 through the Safe Routes to Schools Program through the state Department of Transportation.
“We do not anticipate the ordinance being necessary,” Lonergan said. However, if it is, the borough would compensate property owners.

Digital radio to get £21m investment

two way radio microphoneThankyou for reading my site, here is a piece i actually loved reading. With their agreement i can repost it. I write a lot of my own content pieces, but occasionally repost other content i find interesting, thankyou for reading.

More money is to be invested in digital radio as the industry gears up to switch off FM transmitters within the next few years.

Communications minister Ed Vaizey said up to £21m will come from the BBC, government and commercial radio.
It will be used to increase digital radio coverage so more homes can receive DAB signals.
“I absolutely believe that the future of radio in this country is digital. We cannot go backwards,” said Mr Vaizey.
The measures include plans to build a second national DAB multiplex, run by broadcasting watchdog Ofcom, which would enable the launch of new national commercial stations.

The government said it would only announce a date for a digital motorola DP2400 radio switchover when digital radio accounted for 50% of all radio listening, and when existing FM coverage has been replicated by DAB.
As of September 2013, only 35.6% of all radio listening was digital, according to RAJAR. This included 23% for DAB radio, with the rest from other digital sources such as Freeview and the internet.
“I have always said that the radio listener will lead the transition to digital,” Mr Vaizey said at the Go Digital Conference.

“We set ourselves a series of benchmarks. Listening should be at 50%. Coverage needs to be built out with firm plans in place to match FM coverage for all stations moving from analogue.

End Quote Ed Vaizey “We are not there yet. So now is not the time to switchover,” he added.
‘More choice’ Mr Vaizey said while progress had been made in rolling-out digital radio, the service needed to improve to enable the listener to get a “much better service” and “far more choice, with many more stations”.

Other plans announced today include government funding for Ofcom to help smaller radio stations to go digital.
“The UK is at the forefront of developments in digital radio, and we have a huge opportunity not just with the UK market but also throughout Europe,” Mr Vaizey added.
“This package of measures is intended to cement this and herald in a digital age, as and when the consumer is ready.”
An estimated 95% of cars currently still lack DAB equipment and many people are still reliant on analogue radios, with some rebelling against the FM switch-off.

A new partnership is planned between Digital Radio UK and the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) to give people information on upgrading their car radios to digital, and a new digital radio “tick” mark is planned so the public know what they are buying.
‘Positive step’ The government and Ofcom will also look more closely at other radio regulations to “ensure they are fit for a digital age”.
The announcements were welcomed by both the BBC and commercial radio bosses, including Bauer Media chief executive officer Paul Keenan – in charge of stations such as Magic, Key 103 and Kiss – who called it “a positive step forward for our industry”.

Ashley Tabor, the founder and president of Global – which runs the Capital and Heart branded stations around the UK- said it was “the biggest boost” to local DAB coverage in years.
“We want all our local stations to enjoy good coverage on DAB, and this will soon be a reality as a result of this agreement. The real winner here is the listener.”
Ford Ennals, chief executive officer of Digital Radio UK, also said the measures would “benefit listeners”, adding: “We look forward to the future confirmation of a switchover date which will give industry the certainty it needs.”

Satellite Frequency Television Systems Explained

For a long time people have been telling me that family, love and happiness are the important things in life…Nowadays I realized that I’m able to take or leave all that as long as We have this walkie talkie in the world.

communication devices teach ictYou can often induce uninhibited satellite frequency small screen receiver, receiver, cables and remote control unruffled with trained installation. To take occupied benefit, you can too hoard up to four receivers can be used in numerous temporary housing in many Dish Network satellite small screen.

Satellite method is introduced, and relations are for ever and a day on hand intended for uninhibited on Dish Network. Other companies with the purpose of either are on Direct small screen. There are many rumors something like the small screen advertising on the Internet on Flash. But how can a method of satellite television?

The answer is at this juncture. This method uses the power of communications satellites in the southern hemisphere, which is located a kilometer away from the face. The company uses the satellite-TV services via satellite frequency all over the earth, place of residence or the household, with a see-through viewpoint of the southern sky. They get something done this by using an receiver and receiver.

Not so long since, I remember the relations still using with the purpose of significant satellite dish. These doses are very huge and pouring. They are frequently in the courtyard of the detached house. They are often based on the satellite C-band transmission. This is in contradiction with the Ku-band – the frequency frequently used in small plates, which are widely used Dish Network.

High-frequency C-band monotonous faces many limitations, as they come up with take away role Ku-band satellites. Therefore, if you feel like to induce more channels of satellite C-band, more than a satellite dish and too come up with a license fee intended for each one host at what time it is installed. However, a small dish Ku-band channels and a integer of programs to induce in individual small bowl. This is as low-cost satellite Dish Network.

Valuable present of the Ku-band satellites is their small size and compact design. You can get something done everything on the roof or the patio. Therefore, in attendance is veto need to garnish your patch you a pouring bowl. Then you can benefit from the spare pause on the work intended for other purposes.

If you are registering on Dish small screen satellite systems, you receive uninhibited trained installation service. This is a different added present to the frequency Ku-band satellites. If you feel like to install a satellite frequency pop group C, they essential uncover a way to renovation your own. If not, get something done it on equipment intended for you. Therefore, the further outlay. It is see-through with the purpose of the jury in determining whether the Ku-band satellite frequency as of their size, trained, consequences, skin, and offers a variety of channels to want from. So if you are interested in satellite small screen, in attendance is veto better epoch than pronto to offer DISH Network offers you and goodbye cable television .

Extended warranty increases E-911 costs

With a great deal of information around the internet about 2 way radio gear’s its hard to discover the top and most truthful information. heres an article from a reputable site that i believe as accurate, do not quote me on it but please read and enjoy

two way radio equipmentLake County commissioners bought the extended warranty package Wednesday on the county’s new E-911 radio hardware.

The 15-year deal will cost $18.1 million $6.5 million more than the amount made public last month when commissioners first chose Motorola as the best, but not cheapest bidder, from among three potential vendors.

E-911 Director Brian Hitchcock said most of the difference is a result of the county buying seven more years of Motorola maintenance services than originally planned. The agreement is scheduled to run until 2030.

The costs include:

$8.4 million for Motorola’s interoperable 700 megahertz P25 Trunked Voice Walkie Talkie system, a state-of-the-art digital radio network designed to more efficiently link 17 separate county and municipal police and fire departments communications.

$862,000 for additional radios, sirens and other equipment not mentioned in last month’s price summary.

$8.8 million for the 15-year maintenance agreement that averages $469,000 each year for equipment maintenance as reported last month and $119,560 annually for software maintenance not in last month’s summary.

“The price is extremely competitive,” Hitchcock said.

Hitchcock said Motorola was willing to cut its usual costs to win one of the state’s largest E-911 consolidation efforts in Motorola’s backyard. Hitchcock said E-911 consolidations of this size have run well more than $20 million in other communities.

Commissioners said their insistence on demanding competitive bidding for radio equipment, despite time pressures, saved taxpayers $1.3 million over buying Motorola equipment through a state-run process that some police chiefs insisted would be the cheapest alternative.

Lake County Attorney John Dull said the county employed Federal Engineering, of Fairfax, Va., as a communications consultant, at a cost of less than $3,000, to help negotiate the best deal on maintenance costs.

Commissioner Mike Repay, D-Hammond, who voted for the contract Wednesday, said Federal Engineering warned the county maintenance costs could easily exceed the original equipment’s price.

Dull said the deal the county agreed on freezes maintenance costs despite whether Motorola’s equipment and service costs increase over the years.

Hitchcock said having the contract signed is a big step in making consolidation a reality after more than five years of official indecision in the face of the state’s mandate to launch E-911 by next year.

The county still must spend more to build, furnish and equip the primary call center to be located in Crown Point and a back-up center in East Chicago, construct two new communications towers and rent five others around the county, and buy about $3 million in personal radio receivers to be used by county police officers and ambulance and fire services working for township trustees.

Commissioners again said they will borrow up to $21 million for the capital expenses. Dull said the county will pay for the maintenance costs from operational revenues it will receive from property taxes and telephone user fees.

BearCom Details Range of Wireless Technologies Used by Security Industry to Improve Coordination.

two way radio best buyWith very little information on the internet about Walkie talkie’s, it is very rare when we get a chance to re post, with permission, an article from this industry.

BearCom, a nationwide provider of wireless communications equipment and solutions, today advised organizations charged with physical and information security how four wireless technologies can help them enhance collaboration and assist personnel in the field.
Security organizations are well known for their ability to provide physical security, said Hugh Johnston, Product & Purchasing Manager at BearCom. But increasingly, they have become responsible for securing not only those physical locations but the information they house. As they do this, they are embracing four essential wireless technologies: two-way radios, speaker-microphones and surveillance kits, IP video surveillance, and remote call boxes.
Johnston added that the industry continues to refine the balance between vigilance and visibility. Discretion, mobility, and improved coordination are all benefits of wireless technologies, which have a long track record as effective force multipliers.
Two-way radios and repeaters are essential tools for security organizations. Among their most popular choices are the Motorola Solutions CP200, one of the most successful two-way radios ever released, and two radios in the Motorola MOTOTRBO digital line: the Motorola XPR3300 and the Motorola XPR6550. The Motorola XPR3300combines the best of The radio functionality with digital technology. The Motorola XPR6550 boasts advanced features one-touch calling, quick text messaging, and enhanced call management, making it ideal for professionals.
Now the CP200 is available in a digital version, the Motorola CP200d. The CP200d retains the CP200s simplicity and durability, and the form factor is virtually the same. The new model is backward compatible, so it uses the same chargers, batteries, and speaker-microphones as the CP200. Also available is a digital-capable version that can be converted later from analog to digital operation.
To keep radio communications simple and discreet, the security industry has long relied on speaker-microphones and surveillance kits. With a speaker-mic clipped to a shoulder, a security officer can talk without taking his or her radio out of its belt holster. A surveillance kit lets an officer in uniform or plain clothes hear what is being said without others getting that information. Two-wire surveillance kits let the user clip the mic to a shirt or jacket, while three-wire kits hide the push-to-talk button in a jacket sleeve, so the user can transmit without noticeable hand movements.
IP video surveillance is essential for security organizations needing to cover large areas and do so safely. Wireless cameras dont require extensive cabling, just a power source. These systems can be monitored remotelyeven from mobile devicesand they can provide recordings as well as live viewing. The mere presence of IP video surveillance has been shown to deter criminal activity.
Another established security industry tool is the remote call box, which brings 2 way radios to people who dont carry radios, such as those seeking access through a gate or interior door. The presence of remote call boxes also helps deter crime, and wireless call boxes eliminate the need for expensive wiring.
The one-to-many communication of two-way radios is perfectly suited for bringing attention and manpower to the right place in the face of a threat or an emergency, Johnston said, and more effective communication bolsters both the officer and public safety. Digital radios offer text and data communications, and digital radio transmissions can be encrypted so they are not available to outsiders with scanning equipment.
