Do You Have a Loading Dock?

Monday, January 3rd, 2011

Tim lives in Melbourne, Florida and does our 2 way radio repair work. Tim is very inventive, in an unconventional way. He is kinda like Doc Brown, the character played by Christopher Lloyd in the movie “Back to the Future”. When it comes to electronics Tim is exceptionally smart and creative. I think Tim could have invented the Flux Capacitor, unfortunately he can be a little grumpy and stubborn.

John is our customer in Atlanta. John’s  organization has been using VHF 2 way radios for several years. VHF radios are best suited for outside use. The VHF signal does not penetrate walls and solid objects as well as the UHF signal. We typically recommend UHF radios for applications like John’s, however, John inherited the VHF-UHF problem when he joined his organization.

Recently, John asked if we had a way for him to economically make the switch from VHF radios to UHF radios. This is where Tim comes in.

Tim built an electronic device (we are calling it the Timulator in Tim’s honor). The Timulator receives a VHF radio signal on one side and rebroadcasts the signal as UHF on the other side. In other words, it allows VHF and UHF radios to talk to each other. Instead of having to replace all of his 2 way radios at once, our customer John, can continue to use his existing VHF radios and replace them with UHF radios when it is more convenient.

We can build Timulators with any combination of radio signals.

For example, suppose you have a bunch of loading docks at your business. All day long trucks are picking-up and dropping-off stuff. When truckers pull up to your gate they are talking on CB radios. You are probably using UHF radios in your facility so your radios and the truckers radios can’t talk to each other. If you want to direct a trucker to the correct loading dock you have to either carry an additional CB radio or walk up to the trucker and confront him mano to mano.

Please allow me to Introduce the “Timulator.” The Timulator will let you talk back and forth with truckers using your regular 2 way radios. How cool is that?

We haven’t posted Timuator information anywhere else on yet but if you’d like more information give us a call at 239-601-1969.

Doing business with us is easy.
