Tait TP9300 DMR Portable Radio

The TP9300 is one of the most advanced portable radios in the market, and now, it is reaching new heights. With the new Quad-Mode functionality, users are now able to switch between four different standards (Analog Conventional, MPT1327, DMR Tier 2 and DMR Tier 3) on any one radio. But that’s just one of the great features we’ve built in, the TP9300 also includes:

  • Tait Tough Mission Critical Build Quality
  • Enhanced Vocoder for Voice Clarity
  • Man Down Emergency
  • Full Interoperability
  • Smooth Network Migration
  • Stun and Revive
  • GPS Technology

Welcome to the Tait Manufacturing Facility. If you’ve ever wondered who makes our Tait radios, or how we ensure the highest possible standards for our products, then you’ve come to the right place. While many technology companies choose to outsource production, Tait has chosen to keep things in-house. We’re too obsessed with good quality to let anyone else build our radios.

We recently explored the area with our tour guide Aaron Robinson, the Production Manager. Come along with us on this exclusive look at our manufacturing facility that holds all our secret recipes. You’ll... Continue Reading

We’re taking Tait Tough to new heights.
By Evan Forester, Tait Tough Tester.

Ever since we launched our portable radio from a catapult, I’ve dreamed of taking the Tait portable higher. Fortunately, we have some good friends who build drones at Aeronavics and they let us visit for some extreme drop testing.

We started by dropping the radio from 30 meters (98.5 feet) onto the ground. We weren’t too nervous, and of course the radio survived.

Next we tried 66 meters (217 feet). Watching from our monitor on the ground, it was clear that we were beginning to reach ridiculous... Continue Reading

Coverage considerations will dictate the number and locations of your radio sites (also referred to as towers). Together with frequency availability and traffic patterns, they will determine whether the system should be simulcast, multicast or a hybrid of the two.

Coverage engineering may be the most complex area of the radio system specification and design process and is one critical area where your investment in a competent consultant will be well justified.

Measuring coverage
There are many ways to describe coverage performance. It is typically done in... Continue Reading

If you have never been involved in renovating your own house, you almost certainly know someone who has. It is a major logistical exercise in planning, perseverance, and above all, patience! Mostly, you will end up with what you want, but how often do you think “I wish I had shifted that wall/put in more storage/added another bathroom”?

There are so many things to decide, and only one chance to get it all right. And for most people, you will be carrying on your domestic “business as usual” amongst the chaos of upgrading your home.

Upgrading your radio system is a bit like that, but... Continue Reading

Last week we introduced the new P25 Best Practice guides and website. Today we’ll dive a bit deeper to take a look at the first guide: First Steps to your P25 System.

I recently drove to a friend’s house and attempted a short cut. Unfortunately, I started by making the wrong turn. I ended up in a place I was unfamiliar with, but kept guessing the general direction of my destination. After a while, I literally found myself on the complete opposite side of town.

So much for finding a short cut.

If your first... Continue Reading

Can a Tait portable survive a 2.2-ton Jeep?

Tait radios have a long history of being tough.

We recently released the new TP9400, a P25 portable radio built to withstand the toughest challenges public safety responders face. In fact, it’s the most robust radio we’ve ever made.

So, once the new portables had been through a grueling testing regime – both in-house and at an internationally recognized testing facility (to show how the TP9400 stacks up against Military Standards) we wanted to help answer the questions that really matter to people:

One of the most important contractual items of a new or replacement radio communications system is the Acceptance Test.

Acceptance tests come in different names, styles, and formats, but in the end, the term “Final Acceptance” is meant to achieve one goal: validation that the radio system works where, when, and how it was designed to.

But to get to the nirvana of “final acceptance”, there are six key steps that need to be taken… Continue Reading
