We market and advertise 2 Way Radio Express on the internet so we never know who is on the other end of the phone when we answer.
A few weeks ago a fellow from New York City was calling. This fellow is in the subway construction business (the conveyance not the sandwich).
He supervises a crew that pumps concrete from a truck at street level down a shaft into the subway tunnel. His crew stretches about a mile in either direction from the shaft. He told me his concrete truck operator needed to be able to talk to the crew in the tunnel. He told me the shaft was nearly 100 feet deep. The people in the tunnel needed to be able to tell the truck operator to turn on or off the flow of concrete. Oh, I almost forgot, he called on Tuesday and needed the equipment by Friday.
Jay and Grayson and I talked about how we could best and most economically solve the problem. We also called several people we know in the 2 way radio industry for their suggestions.
The final solution: ICOM Lite radios programmed through a low wattage repeater located at the center point of the shaft.
On Monday our customer called to say in his heavy New York accent, “It worked like a charm. You guys are better sliced bread!”
If you need help in solving your 2 way radio problems give us a call. Doing business with us is easy.
