A Special Message for College and High School Football Coaches

Miles College Coach Reginald Ruffin had a problem.  Just a few weeks before the first game of 2014, he found that his sideline communications headsets had been damaged beyond repair by a water leak in the equipment storage area. 

The old communications system had to be replaced before the first game against rival Shaw University on September 6th. Coach Ruffin had several concerns. First, he needed something that could withstand the elements better than his old system. Second, he needed to be sure it could be delivered in advance of the first game.  Third, he wanted a system that was easy to set up, secure from monitoring, capable of providing loud and clear communications, with no possibility of conflict with another system, even one by the same manufacturer.

As it turned out, Falcon Wireless, newly authorized representative of Multi-Voice Radio (MVR), was located in the local area. A demonstration was quickly arranged, and delivery expedited to assure the Miles Golden Bears the best chance possible to be victorious in their opening game. And just to be sure, Burch Falkner, President of Falcon Wireless Direct, will be at the game to make sure that everything goes well.  We can do the same for other football team coaches as well. Just give us a call at 800.489.2611 to put us to work.  In the meantime, additional information is available by clicking here!

Small Town America - We help make them safer!

Welcome to Piedmont Alabama, USA

This is the picture of small town USA.  Population - A little less than 5000, mostly good, hardworking, church going folks.  That is the very reason that burglars and robbers will often target smaller communities like Piedmont.

Most of us would think that the main targets for armed robbery would be banks, credit unions and retail stores.  The fact is that governmental offices (court clerks, county license & tax offices, and utility offices may often have significant amounts of cash on hand.  Worse yet, these offices often have no way to get help in a hurry.

Where there is cash, there is the potential for robbery.  The average response time for a emergency call through a commercial security system is ten minutes or more.  The average robbery is committed less than three minutes.  Burglaries take a little longer - around four minutes. 

Piedmont Mayor Bill Baker decided to do something about this situation. All municipal offices in Piedmont are now protected by a new wireless emergency call system known as HelpAlert. This system, using personal emergency call buttons, can alert the police department in less than five seconds! This means police officers can potentially be on the scene in less than a minute!  That changes the odds a lot!  This may be a good thing to do in YOUR city.  Additional information is available by clicking here. Or, if you would like a demonstration, just give us a call at 205.854.2611.

The KNG Series Radio By Relm Wireless - Built To Last A Long Time, like up to 82 years!

What P25 Radio Gives You The Best Value down the road?

Some would say, the Big "M".  Others (like us) would have a different answer. The fact is that there are four considerations used to evaluate "Value".  Let's start with where the product is made.  Made in America means American workers, paying taxes and purchasing goods and services in the USA.  Relm Wireless manufacturers just one thing - P25 radios, and they do it in Melbourne, FL USA!  They will be here when needed "down the road". We think that is important!

Now, let us introduce what may be a new term to you.  It's called Mean Time Before Failure (MTBF).  This relates to the time expected for the product to last based on the life of the individual components.  The KNG Series radios are built for a MTBF of 82 years of average use (or 721,058 operational hours if you prefer).  Putting it another way, 99.2% of KNG radios can be assumed to be failure free for the first year and 95% are failure free after ten years! So, the longer the MTBF, the more reliable the product.  Only Relm publishes this information.  Wonder why?

The third consideration is the purchase and maintenance cost.  Based on GSA pricing, KNG radios are hundreds of dollars less than comparable Big "M" products.  So it's good to save money up front, but what about "down the road"?  We know that the KNG radio is less likely to need repair so repair cost will be lower.  How much lower?  Consider this - The efficient repair of P25 radios requires highly trained (think expensive) technicians and VERY expensive test equipment which is generally beyond the means of the average radio dealers repair shop.  The result is that most repairs on P25 radios are made at factory repair depots with cost based on flat rate service.  A flat rate repair on a Big "M" portable is $394.  A flat rate repair on a KNG portable is $190, less than HALF the cost of repairing a Big "M" portable.

So far, a KNG radio is the clear winner on three of four considerations used to determine value. So how about the fourth? Glad you asked!  The fourth consideration is the cost of SUPPORT! Anyone who has ever owned a Big "M" product knows that you pay for firmware upgrades, software upgrades and technical support after the warranty period.  With KNG radios, you don't pay for support - It's FREE for the life of the product!  The winner by a knockout is KNG radios by Relm Wireless by any standard of comparison, but that's only part of the story.

There is a lot more to the Relm Wireless story.  If you like videos, click here for the story in short form. If you like charts and graphs and technical stuff in a downloadable file, click here. Or, if you would like for us to mail you a nice copy printed on high grade glossy paper, with a nice cover and ring bound for easy reading just give us a call and we'll mail you a copy - FREE! Our phone number is 800.489.2611, or you can contact us by email - AND, if you would like a demo, that can be arranged as well.  You're gonna love the KNG P25 radios from Relm Wireless and Falcon Direct - GUARANTEED!

Meet Sheriff David Clarke - Winner of our August Attaboy Award!

Congratulations to Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke, Jr., winner of our Attaboy award for August 2014.  Sheriff Clarke is a Democrat, yet he is backed by the National Rifle Association.  He is not your average Democrat! The party elite didn't want him reelected for an additional term (he has been Sheriff since 2002).  Out of state support for his opponent came from the likes of former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg's political action committee with over $150,000 contributed for TV attack ads. That was more than the combined total spent on advertising by BOTH democratic candidates!

But Sheriff Clarke prevailed over his opponent to the be the Democratic candidate in the November elections virtually assuring reelection since there is no Republican opponent.  The curious thing is that former Republican Governor Tommy Thompson urged Republican voters to vote for Sheriff Clarke in the Democratic primary last evening (This is legal in Wisconsin).  So what does that have to do with our bestowing an Attaboy Award to Sheriff Clarke?  Simply this.......

Sheriff Clarke advocates an armed citizenry (as guaranteed by our Constitution) being the front lines for defense against crime and hazards.  We agree with this position.  The fact is that traditional security systems, 911 reporting, and centralized dispatching simply does not work in true emergency situations.

A prime example of the power of active citizens is demonstrated in our SafeCity program as it relates to Church arson and fires.  By utilizing local resources, response time can typically be reduced from ten minutes or more to less than two minutes!  Additional information is contained in our August eNewsletter. Click here for the full story.

Sheriff Clarke is a worthy recipient of this months Attaboy award.  Thank you Sheriff Clarke for standing up for the right thing, even when your own political party threw you under the bus.  Keep on keeping on Sheriff Clarke!  We need more people like you! And on a closing note, Switzerland, ranked as one of the ten safest nations in the world REQUIRES gun ownership and mandatory military training.  They understand, as should we, that a trained militia and an involved citizenry is a strong deterrent to crime.
