    Orwigsburg council approves Walkie Talkie purchase for communications system update 

    This piece is posted by the strict agreement of 2 way Radio.com, that is the original site. please get agreement from that blog before reposting this piece of writing.
    The borough council approved the purchase of six 2 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 Icom 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.

    Lone Worker with Kenwood Nexedge Walkie Talkie 

    For years people have been telling me that family, love and happiness are the crucial things in life…Nowadays I realise that I’m able to take or leave all that as long as I have this communication devices media in the world.

    Every employer has a duty of care under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, to ensure so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare of all its employees in the workplace and equally that persons not in their employment are “not exposed to risks to their health and safety so far as is reasonably practicable” – with the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act introduced in 2007, the implications for enterprises in the public and private sectors of not taking lone worker protection seriously have escalated.

    Two-way radios are already widely in use in lone worker applications across chemical and manufacturing plants, utilities, mining, security and transport industries where personnel often cover large, remote areas or operate in hazardous environments.

    However, with the increase in flexible working times, care in the community services, home deliveries and reductions in workforces operating from fixed locations, more people than ever are now operating as lone workers, often in situations where they may be exposed to potential accidents and inappropriate or violent behaviour.

    While the reliability and quality of any Kenwood Headset would prove to be an asset in most lone worker scenarios, the NEXEDGE® range of digital two-way hand portable walkie talkies and mobile in-vehicle two-way radio units offer much more than the ability to transmit voice and data instantly and efficiently.

    All models feature Emergency Key and Emergency Call features as standard, while some advanced models additionally offer Lone Worker and an Emergency Advanced Motion Detection Function, which make them ideal for incorporating within a robust health and safety and lone worker policy.

    NEXEDGE® Digital Two-way Radios with Lone Worker features include both hand-portable walkie talkies and mobile in-vehicle units.

    Vhf Marine Walkie Talkies 

    walkie talkie yellowSome of these pro writers on the web are at a really top level that i wonder if any of them have ever printed a book? well now and then i like to highlight these excellent content pieces and here is one i found fascinating the other day.

    The problem is that there are many of these devices to choose from and if you are on a tight budget, you may find yourself attracted to the lower cost communication devices. If you want to make your choice a lot simpler, get any of the VHF marine radios that are sold and you should be good to go. Marine VHF technologies have enough advantages to suit a ship or vessel of any size.


    VHF marine radios are flexible in the sense that they are capable of operating in different channels including the worldwide 156.8 MHz standard. This standard is important if you want to make distress transmissions. In addition, marine VHF devices can use radio waves from 156 to 174 MHz. This reflects the definition of VHF which stands for “very high frequency”. In general, the trans-receiving capabilities are more reliable in terms of rescue services. All you need to do is read the specifications of the marine VHF radio to see if it supports all of the standard channels in the country you are in.

    Display Features

    If you take the time to sift through the different VHF marine Walkie Talkies sold both online and offline, you may encounter some marine VHF units that feature nice displays. Good models have a display panel that can provide weather alerts so users can contact rescue services in advance. It also aids in setting a safe course to avoid possible problems. The better devices may even have illuminated displays so you can clearly listen or communicate regardless of the weather conditions or time of day. Other devices may even be waterproof so the display is not affected if you accidentally submerse the device in water. Waterproof VHF marine radios are absolutely essential for dealing with heavy conditions.

    Extra Features

    If you are willing to pay a little bit more on these VHF marine radios you can get the devices that feature dual power mode for even better efficiency or other useful extras like the ability to forecast any climatic changes so people in the boat can make better preparations. There are also several accessories that can be used with VHF marine devices like belt clips and charging adapters and cradles so you are not really missing any of the features that standard marine trans-receiving devices possess. Even if the VHF radio lacks waterproof features, some devices may include waterproof cases.

    You can basically choose any VHF device and you should be in the right path. But if you have many options in front of you, always stick with the most rugged units so you can handle them properly even when out on the open sea.

    Communication Alarm System 

    what would you say if this site About keyword was the best one we found this week, would you believe us?

    After publishing my last article Listening Awareness, one of the comments I received was that although the article by itself was very good, we should also remember that there is more to good communication skills than just listening…it also involves being able to interpret body language.
    How true! So this time around I want to help us become aware of it and learn even better communication skills by utilizing it.
    So what is body language? It’s a subconscious attempt to create balance between feelings and appearances. It’s communication by movement or placement of our bodies such as our standing or sitting posture, facial expressions and gait. Try watching a TV program with the sound off and we’ll usually be able to interpret when a person is aggressive or surprised or dejected — that’s body language.
    Granted, body language is not always fool proof because it should be interpreted in conjunction with what is being said and it can be affected by the speaker’s individual habits. It’s not a language in and of itself; it’s just a part of the communication spectrum. For example, if we see a person across the room crying, we probably won’t know if they are upset or joyful or frightened because crying can symbolize many different emotions.
    Below are just some samples of body language and their possible interpretations:

    Biting nails = Nervous, insecure

    Drumming fingers = Restless, impatient

    Rubbing both hands = Anticipating, impatient

    Resting cheek on the hand = Thinking, evaluating

    Folded arms across the chest = Disagreement

    Eyes downcast = Guilt, boredom

    Rubbing eyes = Disbelief, doubt

    Rubbing the bridge of the nose = Uncertain, rejection

    Resting the head on the palms = Boredom, despair

    Head titled to one side = Interested, listening

    Hands on hips = Aggressive, authoritative

    Kicking foot while walking or sitting =Boredom

    Leaning forward = Interested
    Now, remember to take into consideration a person’s habits (if we know them). For example, when I fold my arms across my chest it’s usually because I am cold or evaluating with my head tilted. So that’s my point: body language is not one-size-fits-all in every situation.
    However, if we become more aware of our own body language and habits, it will help us become more observant of others. In doing this we will be able to better judge if the person or people we are speaking with are paying attention, if they care about what we’re saying, if we’re hitting a nerve, or if they are not being honest with us. It’s a communication warning/alarm/alert system that we’re already equipped with if only we know how to use it properly. How cool is that?

    Cincinnati State Technical College and Community College 

    Wow. The newest motorola two way radio yellow is incredible. I mean it is just so gorgeous and so sophisticated. I pity individuals who grew up without the communication device stephen hawking.

    communication device telephoneCincinnati State Technical and Community College (CSTCC) needed to migrate to a communications system that would support clear coverage over a large area and cost-effectively accommodate multiple talkgroups.

    Studying the Needs of Campus Security CSTCC is comprised of three campuses and over 1.3 million square feet. Until recently, the college used an all-analog system, components of which were 15 years old. According to Raymond Mirizzi, Director of Facilities at CSTCC, “We needed to upgrade our whole communications system,” and it was vital that the entire campus be covered with a 2 Way Radio solution that would support very clear, consistent and secure communications.

    The three-part campus needed a supervisory channel that would provide the flexibility for critical security officers and related personnel to communicate during times of crisis. Of course, because such emergencies can arise at any time, it was also critically important that the migration from analog to digital proceed smoothly and quickly because even brief downtime could put the campus at risk.

    A budget had been established, and CSTCC expected a lot of value for their investment. An Educated Customer Makes the Right Choice A consultant was sent to work with CSTCC to determine needs, assess the options, and help them make the right choices. Because MOTOTRBO is still a relatively new solution, it was also important to provide CSTCC with a hands-on demonstration so they could get a sense of the potential that MOTOTRBO could offer.

    After the demonstration, CSTCC was so excited about the product that they asked for a quote immediately so they could present it to their trustees that evening. With the recent tragedy at Virginia Tech, trustees were very eager to implement a more secure communications system. The trustees appreciated that security is built into this digital solution: when users monitor digital
    Communications, they hear only that the channel is in use – they don’t hear the actual conversation.

    “MOTOTRBO was our choice,” explains Michael Wylie, Director of Environment and Public Safety at CSTCC. According to Wylie, based on the demonstration it was obvious that “MOTOTRBO electronics were much better and reception was much clearer than what we had in our old analog system.” Wylie was working under a budget, and MOTOTRBO supports lower cost of ownership compared to analog systems because fewer repeaters are required: two voice channels are utilized in one 12.5kHz frequency channel, so only one repeater is needed for every two voice or data paths. Considering all factors, Wylie concluded that “we could replace our old system with this higher quality solution at a reasonable cost.” MOTOTRBO also proved to be a way to ensure a smooth migration from analog to digital, supporting dual mode operations that could enable backwards communication between new units and older units already in place. Following this migration strategy, CSTCC could buy a few MOTOTRBO radios and use them in the analog mode; as time and budget allowed, they could then start migrating a few radios at a time to digital.

    Graduating to a Better Communications Solution Mirizzi understands that “when you’re going offline to restart a new system, there will be a down period, and that can be a big problem if there’s an mergency taking place. When we switched to MOTOTRBO, however, most people on campus didn’t even know we switched over. It was that smooth.” MOTOTRBO is now installed at CSTCC with 16 channels, one of which is to be used exclusively by supervisory personnel. According to Wylie,
    “This afforded us the opportunity to carry on confidential conversations without everyone else hearing what was going on.” Having this supervisory channel would mean that CSTCC didn’t have to buy an extra FCC license or a new conventional repeater.

    The security repeater has ten units running off it; the facilities repeater has forty units running off it
    and each one can be expanded to several hundred users, so there’s plenty of room to grow.

    MOTOTRBO also provides much clearer audio quality than is possible with analog, especially in fringe
    coverage areas – and that’s especially important on this sprawling campus. A digital signal is inherently clearer than analog; and with noise suppression technology, MOTOTRBO audio becomes even crisper and sharper. “MOTOTRBO gave us the ability,” Mirizzi says, “to communicate at a greater distance and branch out and create different channels for our internal operations. And then we had the opportunity for facilities and security to come together and communicate as one group, bringing together the right people at the right time.”

    MOTOTRBO – Ready to Grow, Digitally Designed to facilitate quick and easy migration and operate in mixed analog and digital environments, MOTOTRBO’s digital technology can be adapted to a number of different work environments, seamlessly supporting industry-specific applications. The open, flexible and licensable data interface offered by MOTOTRBO is designed to be regularly enhanced
    through 3rd party devices and applications, making MOTOTRBO a terrifically expandable platform that gives users the opportunity to upgrade their radios as needed for continuously higher performance.MOTOTRBO is a complete system of mobile and portable units, repeater, data applications and accessories that can be easily adapted meet specific customer needs, whether in education, service or industrial environments. A forward-compatible platform, MOTOTRBO provides a solid foundation for future growth of a communications system.
