The Civil Air Patrol (CAP) is the civilian auxiliary of the United States Air Force with more than 60,000 volunteer members that train for, and carry out disaster relief, and search and rescue missions throughout the USA.
The CAP had very specific performance requirements for its radio communications. They chose a modified Tait mobile radio as the narrowband VHF FM radio for use in their nationwide emergency services programme.
By modifying a Tait mobile radio CAP could switch each radio from wideband to narrowband. Another key improvement was increasing the radio’s already high selectivity. The modular design of the mobile radio gives the possibility of adding features and functions in the future. The flexibility and reliability of the Tait mobile radios make Tait an effective long-term alternative for all federal agencies.
CAP could increase selectivity and switch easily from wideband to narrowband. Customization offers improved reliability, providing a flexible solution which conforms to their individual system design requirements.
