The ability to share information is fundamental to mankind’s evolution, therefore when one considers the isolation and geography of Australia, it is clear why radio communications have played such an important role in the development of the nation’s infrastructure. Reliable radio access has been a vital component in such Australian icons as the Royal Flying Doctor Service and The School of the Air. It is also not surprising that innovative telecommunications should emerge as one of the country’s leading industries.
For over 25 years the Australian rural community has enjoyed the benefits of GME’s radio communications. In the 1980s our range of 477MHz transceivers was instrumental in changing the face of farm communications, improving productivity and safety. Today GME telemetry and data radio equipment is introducing new levels of efficiency in farming, viticulture and many associated rural activities.
In the 1990s the GME Electrophone TX4000 series of portable transceivers revolutionised the Australian UHF radio market. By offering a unique feature set, including totally integrated multichannel selcall facilities, remote mounting capability and unprecedented aesthetics married with tough, durable mechanics, the TX4000 family became the standard by which all other radios are measured.
Around Australia, customers like State Emergency, Ambulance and Police Services, Highway Patrols and the Rural Fire Brigades, are all well aware of the reliability and service that are the hallmark of Standard Communications and GME Electrophone products.
Technical excellence lies at the very heart of every GME radio product, from the Design Engineers, through the factory assemblers, test technicians, to the sales and customer service teams that support the products in the field, each individual has commitment and an unerring pride in the quality of the GME product.
Such a combination of expertise and resources ensures GME remains at the forefront of radio communications development. We maintain our investment in technology and as customer needs change, we design radio communication products that continue the tradition of exceptional performance, innovative features and value for money.
