TRBOWEST provides seamless digital radio coverage throughout Washington and Oregon.

TRBOWEST launched service March 15 on its expanded digital radio network now serving all of Eastern Washington from the Cascades to Northern Idaho. Seamless wireless service is available in Yakima, Ellensburg, Toppenish, Wenatchee, Chelan, Moses Lake, Spokane, Coeur d’Alene, Sand Point, Tri-Cities and Hermiston from 11 high-power tower sites.

TRBOWEST Digital Network provides legally allowed hands-free wireless service for commercial vehicles and complies with DOT Rule Part 392 (enacted Jan. 3, 2012) allowing talk while driving. Cellular phones do not comply with hands-free laws.

This expansion links a user into the overall TRBOWEST network covering the Pacific Northwest from Canada to California from 27 high-power tower sites.

Users have unlimited talk time for $19.95 per month and unlimited data for $4.95 per month.

“You can talk to whole teams or just one person anywhere in the region with the push of a button and also have smart features like GPS tracking, dispatching or asset management,” said Scott Crosby, Project Manager.

Independent wireless dealers in the region sell TRBOWEST service with mobile and portable radios to farms, freight companies, bus systems, refuse haulers, porta-potty providers, security firms, construction companies and others needing mobile wireless that is legally allowed communication.

Many mobile users are moving to TRBOWEST with the decommissioning by Sprint of their Nextel push-to-talk service ending June 30, 2013.

Additional expansion is under construction for service starting summer 2013 in the Columbia Gorge, Bend and Newport Oregon markets.

TRBOWEST (“turbo-west”) is the largest, privately operated, seamless digital radio network in the Pacific Northwest providing legally allowed wireless commercial service. System infrastructure is made by Motorola Solutions to an open standard (DMR and TDMA) with more than 100 third party applications including GPS, dispatch and asset management software. The $2.2 million network is owned by Day Management Corporation of Milwaukie OR.

TRBOWEST complies with DOT Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulation Part 392.82 allowing use of mobile radio devices in a commercial vehicle while in operation. The law was enacted January 3, 2012. Cellular phones do not comply; texting and use of a hand-held cellular phone is prohibited in a commercial vehicle in operation.

Introducing the Motorola XPR 6100 Radio

January 19th, 2012 Posted in Uncategorized | No Comments »

Day Wireless is happy to introduce the XPR6100, Motorola’s entry level portable offering in the MOTOTRBO digital radio platform. The XPR 6100 is roughly 45% less in price than the XPR6350, the previous “entry level” TRBO model. Motorola has positioned the radio without a lot of the bells and whistles offered in the higher end models. However, users will still enjoy the high quality sound and range of digital radios.

TRBOWEST Launches the Largest Digital Two-Way Radio Network in Washington and Oregon

November 1st, 2011 Posted in Uncategorized | No Comments »

TRBOWEST Coverage
For Immediate Release
November 1st, 2011

Portland, OR – TRBOWEST announces the availability of the TRBOWEST Digital Network beginning November 1st, 2011. The digital two-way radio network consists of 13 mountaintop sites, spanning over 400 highway miles from the Canadian border to south of Eugene, Oregon.

TRBOWEST offers a low, flat rate for unlimited digital two-way radio and data communication. The system is constructed using Motorola’s “MOTOTRBO” platform of equipment, thus the namesake TRBOWEST. This is the first digital radio network made available to Seattle and Western Washington businesses and agencies. Future expansion of the TRBOWEST coverage area is planned within Oregon and Washington, and roaming agreements will be made for connecting with other regional networks.

Wide area radio, or dispatch radio is used by businesses and government agencies with mobile workers such as transportation, construction, delivery, agriculture, private security, and sanitation. The radio network offers unlimited voice communication and data for GPS tracking, text messaging, and other custom software applications. “The TRBOWEST network is a solution to make our customers more productive, safer, and improve their bottom line. Keeping all mobile employees connected to each other makes the entire team safer and more efficient. We are also seeing significant cost savings for our customers when comparing our system to similar cellular solutions,” said Dean Ballew, Manager at TRBOWEST.

Digital radio systems have several significant advantages over analog systems. Voice quality is much clearer due to noise cancellation and digital encoding. Software applications are easy to develop and integrate with digital radio. TRBOWEST also has seamless site roaming and signal strength meters which make the equipment easy to operate.

The TRBOWEST Digital Network operates as an independent business entity, but is owned by Day Wireless Systems, the largest wireless integrator in the West. Authorized Motorola Solutions dealers in the Pacific Northwest are able to offer their customers this digital wide area solution.

FCC Two-Way Radio Narrowbanding Update

July 15th, 2011 Posted in Uncategorized | No Comments »

The FCC recently released a reminder of the commission’s January 1, 2013 narrowband deadline for private land mobile radio services in the VHF and UHF bands to migrate to 12.5 kHz or less technology. A couple of key developments were addressed in the July 13, 2011 public notice, specifically:

- The FCC will accept requests for waiver of the narrowbanding guideline
- The FCC clearly states the monetary fines for non-compliance

For the first time, the FCC has provided guidance on how to prepare waiver requests for the narrowbanding deadline by licensees. Earlier this year, APCO International First Vice President Gregg Riddle was quoted, “The FCC reaffirmed that they have no intentions of extending the compliance deadline of Jan. 1, 2013. All licensees are expected to comply, and the use of waivers should not be viewed as a simple option [for] narrowbanding.”

The recommended content of waiver requests certainly does not provide a “simple option” for non-compliance, and applications for waiver are sure to be scrutinized heavily.

The consequences of failing to comply were another key point covered in the public notice. According to the document, “Operation in violation of the Commission’s rules may subject licensees to appropriate enforcement action, including admonishments, license revocation, and/or monetary forfeitures of up to $16,000 for each such violation or each day of a continuing violation and up to $112,500 for any single act or failure to act.”

Day Wireless Systems has helped thousands of agencies with narrowband compliance and planning, call us today to speak with a trained consultant: 800-503-3433.
