A long time client located in South Central Alaska was running VHF analog radio systems with multiple repeater pairs spread out over their entire refinery. All of the repeaters, base stations, and associated portable and mobile radio users were reporting back to an old Zetron dispatch console. The analog radio system had some Motorola Solutions equipment that was upgradable to the narrowband FCC mandate but most of the communications equipment the client employed was not capable of being upgraded.
The client needed a communication solution that would incorporate their analog licensed radio channels but could also give them the ability to migrate to digital channels within the same backbone and infrastructure. Arcticom utilized Zetron’s technology to build a new communications center that would house a new dispatch facility for their communications systems.
Arcticom worked with the electrical supervisor and project manager to compile all of the coverage issues that were occurring within the areas of the refinery and brought to the project team a new UHF Motorola MTR3000 repeaters in a combined antenna system to eliminate the intermodulation among repeaters resulting a more reliable and efficient system.
We continue to provide repairs of portable and mobile radios they employ as well as service and management of the repeaters and base stations we have installed on site.
