Take Your Signal With You

hand-radio-signalIt’s your first day on a new jobsite. All the job assignments have been handed out and you’ve given all your work crews two-way radios so they can stay in close contact. You know that a good working two-way radio system is the key to organizing and running a successful jobsite.

But what happens a few weeks or months into the project when concrete and metal structures appear or the project has multiple floors?

Your clear, trusty, two-way radio signal suddenly becomes scratchy and transmissions are broken and not discernible. Without help, your current two-way radio signal can no longer pass through the structures that have now cropped up on your work site. As your jobsite expands you require a stronger signal with even more coverage.

When this happens a two-way radio repeater will definitely do the trick. But, purchasing an expensive system, taking the time to set it up and then having to remove it when the job is done seems like too much of a headache.

Well, new research into the wide use of repeaters in the construction industry has led to the special design of more compact, portable, self-contained repeaters that are easy to use on multiple jobsites.

Portable repeater systems such as the Rapid Deployment System (RDS) PR50 Compact are now on the market. It’s description on the website claims, “It is ready to go when you need it!” This compact repeater system is completely mounted inside a Pelican-style case that is light enough to be carried around by hand. The repeater is set up in just minutes and can be packed away just as fast, which is ideal for emergency situations or for companies who need to move around to other jobsites. Everything you need, the repeater, antenna, antenna mount and cable, are fitted into this well ventilated case which can be powered by AC, DC, battery or solar power.

With up to 50 Watts of penetrating power, having a complete “Plug and Play” compact repeater system will save you time and money, and will ensure the productivity and safety of all your current and future jobsites!
