Founded in 1983, Information Station Specialists is the USA's best
known source for Information Radio Stations (TIS/HAR), advisory
the specialized services required to
transmit spoken messages to citizens − the only such source
providing products entirely made in America.
Powered via solar power and controlled by
wireless means, this trailer-mounted radio station and
Changeable Message Sign (CMS) throws a full 25-to-75 square
mile signal (3 to 5 mile radius) to motorists. Special FCC
licensing allows both fixed and territorial licenses.
Available with or without CMS sign.
Solar-powered, wireless controlled
portable CMS signs can store and display hundreds of
messages; notify motorists of incidents. May be operated
with or apart from information radio stations.
For highways with speeds over 60 MPH, this kit includes a
solar-powered collection/storage system, wireless receiver,
flash controller and two amber LED flashing beacons.
Designed to fit any size highway sign. Does not include sign
panel or supports.
Wireless-controlled, solar-powered beacon
signs may be triggered remotely to advise motorists to tune
to a special radio signal for information or to take a
specific action in any public safety situation.
Invisible when not activated; invaluable in an emergency.
Trigger Stealth Signs to instantly notify and inform those
in harm’s way.
FHWA/NFPA-approved for use at emergency scenes, FASTrack signs are portable and quick to assemble during emergencies. They have custom sign text and optional text overlays.
This sign has no equal in flexibility, size and setup speed.
It is capable of going places where conventional
trailer-mounted changeable message signs never could and can
function indoors, outdoors, off-road and in the tightest of
spaces and on the tightest of budgets. Transport it in the
back of a car or SUV; it is light enough to be set up by one
person in minutes.
