New MiniCom Portable Dispatch Center!

One of our 911 customers got hit by lightning the other day.  The console was knocked out as well as a repeater control radio.  They had insurance, which was good, but there were still the delays associated with the unforeseen disruption.  Events such as this are all too common.  One customer (not ours) waited almost a year to get a repeater station replaced.  

We've got a better way to quickly restore emergency dispatch communications! We call it a MiniCom Portable Dispatch Center (MPDC).  This system consists of a multi-band radio (that's it on the left), a mini operator console (no microphone or headset required) with 2-tone page sending capability, and a multi-band antenna. The MPDC can simultaneously monitor VHF, UHF, 700 MHz, and 800 MHz, analog or P25 digital, 25 kHz or narrow band, conventional, or trunked operation with a single radio!  Better yet, it automatically selects the received frequency and allows the operator to talk back at the push of a button - no channel flipping required. 

The MPDC allows an operator to select any of up to 2608 channels to initiate a VHF, UHF, 700 MHz or 800 MHz call or even to listen on one frequency band and transmit on another!  The price is just $7,495 installed anywhere in the State of Alabama, and it's available on the GSA contract, fully approved by the Dept. of Homeland Security! See for radio specifications.

So, what do you do about repeater site failures?  Not a problem!  We offer choice of a P25  portable incident command or full powered tactical repeater that can be set up in a matter of minutes with prices starting at UNDER $4,000!  And, just to cap things off, how about a field programmable P25 portable for around $1,200 that has features and functionality surpassing other similar radios costing twice as much or more!  Additional information is available at
