  1. Only we provide radio system components strictly manufactured in the United States.
  2. Only our transmitter (TR6000 HQ5.0) features full 5000 Hz audio bandwidth to comply with new FCC rules that allow for high quality broadcasting. The transmitter employs a modern synthesized frequency system, so that if a frequency change ever is necessary, it can be easily done without component changes or board-level work. The TR6000 Transmitter also utilizes an efficient Class D amplifier, comprised of only two driver devices for highest reliability. Moreover, TR6000 is the only such unit manufactured and type-accepted for Travelers Information Station (TIS) applications in the United States, and it is approved for military use on 510-530 kHz, 1610-1700 kHz - Certification: J/F 12/07677.
