Transcrypt Launches Portable Repeater
Transpeater III Helps Military and First Responders Improve Radio Operations
Lincoln, NE - EFJ, Inc. (NASDAQ: EFJI) announced that its Transcrypt International subsidiary will make the Transpeater III portable repeater system available to its worldwide base of two-way radio users. The Transpeater III fits in the palm of your hand and can convert portable or mobile radios into a temporary repeater system in minutes, benefiting users by extending the range of radio operations. It can also be used to connect two or three normally incompatible radio groups when used in relay mode.
"This versatile product can help first responders during emergency and disaster situations when they need to enhance the range of their radio operations," said Michael Kelley, general manger for Transcrypt. "It is ideal for military, police, fire, and rescue personnel in situations when tactical operations move outside of normal operating range, to remote or isolated locations, or when the terrain interrupts radio communications. Range extension can be critical in situations such as earthquakes and forest fires or even in cities where tall buildings can interrupt communications," Kelley added.
