NARROWBANDING: Are you compliant? As technology advances, demand on radio frequency spectrum continues to increase. To promote more efficient use of the spectrum, the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) has mandated that UHF mobile radio licensees operating in the 400MHz band migrate to at least 12.5 kHz channel bandwidths.

Narrowbanding deadlines vary according to your location and usage situation. If you are in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Newcastle or Adelaide and operating in the 400MHz band, you may need to transition before 31 December 2012. If you are affected by other changes or if you operate from outside these areas, the deadlines vary.


WHAT YOU NEED TO DO: > Replace two-way radio equipment only capable of operating at 25 kHz > Disable the 25kHz mode on your existing two-way radio equipment

NEED ADVICE? Contact National Wireless on 1300 852 929 to get ready for Narrowbanding.

introduces the STP9000 series

St. George Queensland Reds stay connected with National Wireless The nature of competing in some of the loudest sporting venues in world Rugby is a challenge the St. George Queensland Reds overcome thanks to the cutting edge technology from their digital radio handset supplier, National Wireless. The Reds are continually searching for ways to gain a competitive edge and have found that through the use of Motorola Mototrbo digital radio handsets provided by National Wireless, coach Ewen McKenzie and his high performance staff can remain in clear communication at some of the biggest stadiums across Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. National Wireless prides itself on being Australia’s Premier Digital Radio Handset provider and was a partner of the Reds during their Super Rugby championshipwinning season in 2011 and again in 2012. Reds Team Manager Shane Sullivan said the equipment was a critical part of the team’s success on game days. “Effective communication is paramount and the equipment supplied by National Wireless has great clarity of sound and gives the entire coaching group the confidence we are receiving and delivering the correct messages to the players out on the field,” Mr Sullivan said. “We have the confidence that we are getting the messages through clearly without a need for repetition and this gives us a decisive advantage over our competitors.” “We’ve also experienced great customer satisfaction with their professionalism and promptness in dealing with all queries and requests.” National Wireless also prides itself on tailoring solutions to the specific requirements of each individual customer through the delivery of the most cutting edge digital radio handset technology available.

This brand new series of hand-portables inherits all of the market-leading attributes of Sepura’s existing flagship STP8000 series, and fuses them with a new generation of highly innovative features which will take the TETRA hand-portable market to an even higher level. The key focus of the STP9000 series is driving productivity improvements while also enhancing safety and security. The STP9000 series comprises three variants: STP9000, featuring a full keypad and large, colour screen; STP9100, with a reduced keypad and large, colour screen and STP9200, offering a reduced keypad and monochrome screen. Amongst the key benefits that the STP9000 series offers are: ROBUST – IP67 environmental protection rating ensures your radio continues to function after being submerged in up to 1m of water for up to 30 minutes. EASE OF USE – The STP9000 incorporates an enhanced user interface, with three different presentation styles that users can select according to their personal preference. Interfaces that replicate those found on smart phones or other GSM devices help to reduce training costs. ADVANCED RESOURCE MANAGEMENT – The STP9000 series’ built-in RFID tag assists organisations in managing their resources more efficiently, particularly those utilising pool-issued radios. OTHER KEY FEATURES – Enhanced battery life, superb full-duplex audio and, of particular relevance in today’s economic climate, compatibility with all Sepura STP8000 series accessories. Commenting on the launch, Jens Thostrup, Senior Vice President for Sepura said “It will appeal to users in the utility, public transport and industrial / manufacturing sectors. The IP67 rating will be of particular interest to organisations and industries where resistance to both fine dust and water ingress are required”.

Service Bulletin

DIGITAL No matter what your business is, Christmas and January is usually busy and production down time due to communication failure is NOT an option! Performing regular preventative maintenance can ensure equipment is working to it’s optimum, and reduce the probability of a complete communications failure.

All too often we are called in to fix equipment that has failed due to lack of maintenance. Our most common fault is battery backup failure when the customer most needs it – In the middle of Australia’s inevitable power blackouts each summer. Call National Wireless NOW on 1300 852 929 and ensure your communications function optimally this summer.

DISCLAIMER: Preventative Maintenance includes tuning RF equipment to manufacturers specification, cleaning and testing of batteries/power connection and testing of antenna. A maintenance report is provided for each radio/repeater.
