Founding and Notable Firsts
Specialists Since 1983 Who operates Information Radio Stations?
Since our founding in 1983, we have worked hard to become the Nation’s premier provider of radio systems, signage and associated products and services designed to deliver important messages directly to the public. So why select the “Specialists?”

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.


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.


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


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


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


Many of our product offerings are exclusive, such as the TR.6000 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!
