Connection magazine sat down with Tait Manufacturing Engineering Manager Dean Mischewski to discuss how Tait switched to Lead-Free infrastructure assembly. Dean explains the process:
Lead is extremely toxic to humans – prolonged exposure can cause serious problems to your central nervous system, so it isn’t something we want to be handling unnecessarily. Unfortunately, it’s been used in electronic components for years, particularly in solder. So there is wide concern about how much lead the disposal of these devices might introduce to...

Independent communications consultant Dr Jan Noordhof discusses the future of communications in the Mining industry.
As the scope of the industry’s communications requirements increase, many mines employ an expanding, but disparate mix of technologies. Over many decades, mines have employed phones, bell signalling, leaky feeder systems, through-the-earth communications, VOIP, WiFi, RFID, and cellular to name a few.

Without doubt, the single most important property of any radio network is coverage. Since coverage engineering may be the most complex area of the radio system specification and design process, it is a critical area where your time investment will be well justified. While it may seem sensible and understandable to simply have a goal of coverage that is “the same as or better than the existing network,” statements like this are hard to quantify, and can lead to misunderstandings and difficulties in testing and proving success.
The... Continue Reading

More than 1/3 of US Public Safety Agencies are choosing Simulcast networks. There are many benefits to Simulcast networks, including:
- Easier Operation – the radios just work everywhere
- Better coverage and capacity with existing frequencies
- The ability to reach your entire organization with a single call
- Expertly-designed Simulcast coverage can eliminate dead spots
How do simulcast networks operate? Essentially, simulcast (short for simultaneous broadcasting) means multiple base stations transmitting the same signal on the same frequency at the... Continue Reading
Imagine you’ve just joined an organization that uses radios on a regular basis. You’re given a brand new radio, and a little bit of training on how to use a radio microphone. When you go into the field, however, you find that people are having trouble understanding you.
Although this can sometimes be due to a poor quality product, more often than not it occurs because people don’t always use the radio microphone properly. Today we’re sharing a video from the Tait Radio Academy, titled “Microphone Manners – How to Use your Radio Microphone.” In the video, you’ll learn six simple... Continue Reading
