Re: radios



We just purchased a Technisonics TFM 6000.  This I believe would work for you.  It is based on motorola software for the xms 3000 portable.  It is APCO 25 certified.  It weighs only about 5 lbs.and is self-contained (no remote head/RT).  Cost is about 19K.  Look at it at, www.til.ca or www.dallasavonics.com

Hope this helps,

Bill

Hey Mark.

We have 800 MHz on board our EC135. We use a NAT control head with a
Motorola Spectra 800 MHz radio (mounted remotely with the other radios). It
works fine with the local fire/rescue's trunked 800 systems - same range as
our VHF radios. Don't know the weight but I'm quite sure it is less than 50
lbs. It was installed by Metro Aviation in Shreveport, LA.

Good luck
