The Project

Dove Communications has been Festical One’s preferred supplier of two-way radio communications for over 10 years.

Utilising nearly 200 radios across multiple talk groups over a very wide, hilly area, with mostly volunteer radio users, presented an interesting project for the Dove Communications Rental team.

The Solution

The solution was to deploy our Event Trailer repeater system running a Hytera trunked networking solution to cater for up to eight simultaneous conversations across a number of event teams.

In this instance mains power was available at the Antenna site, however the trailer supports Solar, battery, and Generator alternatives.

"Festival One moved to a new site this year. The service was outstanding as they had to conduct a site survey and set everything up from scratch. I could not have asked for better from them."

Other Case Studies

Mangatangi Farm

Lying pinned under a quad bike rolled is no fun. For Dave it was an excruciating 45 minute wait until help came. While he had a CB radio to talk to other farm staff, no one was listening at the time his quad rolled. Fortunately, his injuries weren’t too serious.
