Airwave is a nationwide digital 2 way radio service for the UK’s emergency services. It provides coverage of 99% of the UK’s land mass through a network of over 4,000 base stations using Tetra technology.
Widely regarded as the model for nationwide digital 2 way radio networks around the world, Airwave has successfully delivered a robust digital 2 way radio service which is relied upon every day by the blue light emergency services.
Protected the security and integrity of Airwave is paramount, therefore access has to be restricted to only the emergency services. Airwave is not available to commercial organisations.
In 2012 LionComms will be launching their digital two way radio service which is estimated to cover over 97% of the UK population. The lightweight and rugged handsets will provide clear digital audio and GPS tracking.
If you want to buy Airwave 2 way radios but are not part of a blue light or public safety organisation, consider the LionComms service.
