Barrett Supplies HF Equipment to China for Fire Communications
Monday, January 13, 2020 | Comments

Barrett Communications supplied high-frequency (HF) radio communications equipment to the Chinese Ministry of Emergency Management for use by the Bureau of Fire and Rescue and Bureau of Forest Fires. 

The regions covered by the Ministry of Emergency Management are vast and typically without telephone infrastructure or cellular phone coverage. Reliable communications are essential in these regions, and HF radio is the only viable option. The supplied equipment was the Barrett transceiver with digital voice and automatic link establishment (ALE) options.
“The combination of ALE and digital voice is perfect for this application,” said Martin Johnson, director of business development at Barrett Communications. “The ALE automatically selects the best channel and sets up the communications link between stations, and the digital voice option provides clear telephone quality voice communications between all parties. The 4050 also comes standard with multiple language options, including Chinese, French, Spanish, Russian and Arabic. Features such as these simplify the training requirement allowing the users to focus on their role, fighting fires.”
