FORMERLY the fire service had to divide its “short-wave” radio with the police. Now, cities of 150,000 and over are permitted to operate their own short-wave stations. And already a number of them are preparing to apply to the FCC for station licenses. Millions of dollars will be spent in this group of cities alone, in the next year or two, for improved communication facilities, both wire and radio.
- FIRE ENGINEERING is proud to have carried the torch for independent two-way radio communication facilities for the fire service, just as it has continually preached improvements in the wire communications systems that have been the backbone of the fire service for so many years.
- Whether you are subscriber or advertiser, you can depend upon FIRE ENGINEERING to “maintain communications” with those whose business it is to create, purchase and operate modern fire service communications.
