Information Station Specialists RadioSTAT
10 Watt Emergency Advisory Radio Station
FCC-Licensed Travelers’ Information Station / Highway Advisory Radio AEL/SEL Category 04AP-09-ALRT
Easy to deploy to incidents, this compact, transportable Information Radio Station can operate from a fixed location when not required in the field. Shareable with other communities. Electronics are housed in a light-weight, high-impact, weather-resistant case with carrying bags for portable antenna and accessories. Control via flash-drive or your network or wireless gateway.
During public health and safety emergencies, take a RadioSTAT Portable Emergency Advisory Radio Station into critical areas and speak directly to citizens via standard radio receivers. RadioSTAT can be a lifesaver, allowing the broadcast of critical instructions and information regarding, for example…
- Medical Emergencies (hospital surge, points of distribution field information, quarantine isolation, decontamination).
- Terrorist/Shooter Incidents.
- HAZMAT and Traffic Information.
- Critical Public Safety Instructions.
- Road Construction/Infrastructure Failures.
- AMBER Alerts.
Built for speed and portability, RadioSTAT electronics are housed in high-impact, weather-resistant cases. The quick-erect antenna system folds up, allowing the entire station to be set up in 10 minutes by one person.
RadioSTAT is FCC-licensed. The signal is typically announced to the public by FASTrack (pictured right) or other portable signs, positioned at the periphery of the coverage area. Motorists receive broadcasts on standard vehicle radios, over 25-75 square miles.
The stations are priced affordably so multiple units can be deployed simultaneously at different locations during an emergency as required.
Portability becomes an instant asset during emergencies, allowing re-establishment of the signal from a new location quickly.
Portability also makes RadioSTAT especially useful at large public gatherings for broadcasting key information, i.e., schedules, traffic, parking, safety and critical instructions for patrons approaching or exiting.
Programming may be controlled using flash drives through a USB port and may also be uploaded via Ethernet from a network or a laptop computer. If you operate RadioSTAT at a fixed location, when it is not required in the field, the network capability makes this asset all the more valuable.
During non-emergency times, officials often operate from a fixed location via the VP.9000 Vertical Profile Antenna (see Options). This helps familiarise citizens with the frequency. Regular FCC-allowed messages may be broadcast during those times.
|1.||Only we provide radio system components strictly manufactured in the United States.|
|2.||Only our transmitter model TR.6000 HQ5.0 features full 5000 Hz audio bandwidth to comply with new FCC rules that allow for high quality broadcasting. The transmitter employs a modern synthesised frequency system, so that if a frequency change ever is necessary, it can be easily done without component changes or board-level work. This transmitter also utilizes an efficient Class D amplifier, comprised of only two driver devices for highest reliability and is the only such unit manufactured and type-accepted for TIS applications in the United States. Moreover, it is approved for military use on 510-530 kHz, 1610-1700 kHz (Certification: J/F 12/07677). We also provide he HQ5.1 Broadcast Quality Audio Processor to take advantage of new FCC audio-filtering standards for expanded bandwidth TIS's (certified by the FCC on February 18, 2016, for exclusive use with the TR.6000 Transmitter). The processor increases broadcast quality, intelligibility and loudness.|
|3.||RadioSTAT is the only system of its kind that is comprised of a transmitter/audio system mounted in a weather-resistant shock case to allow maximum in portability (via handles/wheels) and flexibility (it may be used on the ground or on a building roof).|
|4.||Only the RadioSTAT Portable Emergency Advisory Radio Station features black antennas that discourage ice build-up. Also, they are finished with a special UV-resistant, architectural-anodization process to prevent color fading. Our antennas exclusively include written documentation of safe RF exposure distance per ANSI/IEEE C95.1-1992 standard by a professional engineer (PE).|
|5.||Only the RadioSTAT Portable Emergency Advisory Radio Station includes a USB/flash-drive based digital message player and includes audio editing software to allow message creation and management on any standard PC or laptop. Only RadioSTAT allows uploads of audio via an Ethernet network.|
|6.||Only the RadioSTAT Portable Emergency Advisory Radio Station features a quick-erect antenna stand to support the antenna and connected ground-plane that collapses and can be deployed within 10 minutes.|
|7.||Only Information Station Specialists provides as diagnostic equipment a Signal Measurement Receiver TM to measure the radio station’s signal intensity to ensure it complies with FCC signal strength regulations.|
|8.||Information Station Specialists' electronic designs are non-proprietary and all equipment uses standard 19" rack-mount hardware for ease of substitution and service. This means that, in the future, you may change components as needed without the requirement to return to us; i.e., simple wiring diagrams are provided, so you can service equipment yourself, if you choose, or have a third party assist – all with our full support.|
|9.||Additionally, only we offer technical assistance for the life of the product. We still support today radio stations that first went on the air in the 1980s. Our staff of engineers has more than 80 years of combined experience specifically in the kind of radio technology under which RadioSTAT operates (FCC rules Part 90.242). This experience level is more than double that of any other company in the business.|
|10.||Only we offer free professional recording services.|
|11.||Only Information Station Specialists offers remote technical assistance 24/7 and potential interference notification service for the life of the station.|
