Our Repair Service

Fast Two Way Radio Repairs


Faulty Radios?
Poor range?
Batteries not holding charge?
Poor audio quality?

We can help. Call 0191 5172889. You can fetch it in, we can pick it up, we can assess your system or we can just advise.

One of our strengths is the technical skill of our team of highly trained engineers who have over 90 years experience between them!

Unlike some electronic equipment, most two-way radios are repairable. Don't just sit on faulty equipment - we will repair it for you.

If you have a radio fleet that are not performing to expectations, and appear to have deteriorated in their reliability, range or clarity, or their batteries are not lasting as long as you want, then take advantage of our system testing service. Often for as little of £5.00 per unit, we will collect your radios, loan you some spares, test the radios and report back with an analysis of any faults found.

Remember this - if you have a system of, say, 10 radios, and just two are in need of repair, then nearly 40% of the radio messages will fail. (that's with only 20% of your radios faulty!) And for each of these failed conversations, two of your users will have a bad radio experience, giving the overall impression of a very poor system. This is why it is important to isolate suspect radios as soon as they are found, ensuring your users have confidence in the system. For the mathematicians amongst you, the formula is f=(2nx-x2-x)/(n2-n), where n is the total number of radios, x is the number of faulty radios and f is the proportion of radio conversations that fail.

Ask about our maintenance contracts for peace of mind, low monthly costs and useful benefits and discounts.
