Pharad Offers Several Antennas That Perform In The Recently FCC-Approved TETRA Bands
The recent decision by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to allow the use of Terrestrial Trunked Radio (TETRA) technology came as positive news to Pharad, the world’s leading supplier of TETRA Wearable Antennas.
TETRA has already been approved for use in over 125 countries. Expanding on the waiver granted in May 2011 under the FCC Part 90 Rules, the FCC will now permit unrestricted use of TETRA in the 450 – 470 MHz and 809 – 824/854 – 869 MHz spectrum bands for U.S. critical-communications licenses; the technology still remains prohibited on the public-safety spectrum.
“TETRA is an effective option for customers requiring a spectrally efficient technology for land mobile radio users,” said Austin Farnham, President of Pharad. “We have been offering wearable antennas to TETRA users for over six years, and these antennas have always been very popular and successful with our international public-safety customers. We are glad that we can support new US users with wearable antenna solutions for their TETRA applications.”
Pharad offers several high performance wearable antennas that are optimized for TETRA applications. The family of wearable antennas is currently deployed and provides the ideal antenna solution for first responders and public safety personnel.
