Unlimited Support

We promise to supply remote technical support for every solution we provide for you . . . for its entire useful life. The promise never expires. We are still providing support for systems purchased in the 1980s.

Stability

Information Station Specialists has been under the same ownership and operating with the same company name since its founding in 1983. Our contact information has not changed for more than 30 years.

Universality

Our systems and components are based on tried and true, open-market designs. We avoid "proprietary." This makes future upgrades and maintenance simple.

Service

We provide everything from do-it-yourself systems to "turnkey" solutions to station rentals . . . and everything between. Your service selection includes FCC licensing, planning, installation, training, StreamCasting, professional recording and even program management.

Simplicity

Purchases from Information Station Specialists are often justified sole-source or purchased through a buying cooperative, so a competitive bidding is not often required to obtain our products.

Uniqueness

Many of our product offerings are exclusive, such as the TR6000 Radio Transmitter – the only one on the market that features the full FCC-allowed 5000 Hz bandwidth. Specialized audio and power sources and unique antenna systems make packages from Information Station Specialists, well . . . special!
