Ozborn Communications - REPEATER SERVICE
Ozborn Communications operates both conventional and trunked UHF repeater systems to provide the extended range that our customers need to reach both metro and rural service areas. Both levels of repeater service currently offered make full use of our "tall tower" advantage utilizing a centrally located high antenna. This configuration provides for cost effective wide area communications without the high recurring costs of some heavily land networked systems.

Conventional analog shared repeater systems offer the tried and true, low cost, party line approach to repeater service which remains an economical solution for many users. The shared system provides for quiet standby operation, allowing users to only hear conversations which apply to their talkgroup. When the user needs to make a transmission, as he removes the microphone to make a call, the receiver is opened giving him the opportunity to monitor for an available channel. If the channel is clear he makes his call. If not, he must wait for the channel to become clear before making the call.

Our analog UHF LTR trunked repeater service offers the same extended range with the enhancement of rapid channel access and privacy that are often imperative in professional communications. Through trunking technology, a network of repeaters is controlled by software in both the subscriber unit and the network. Other users on the network cannot hear your conversation nor can you hear theirs. When you need to make a transmission, you simply pick up your microphone and activate the push to talk button. Within milliseconds the subscriber unit requests and the system assigns a clear channel for the conversation.

The subscriber unit is automatically switched to the assigned channel and the conversation takes place just as with any two-way radio. Multiple repeaters are available in the network so that multiple conversations can be ongoing simultaneously. Similar to the switching system used by regular landline telephone service, trunked radio service is not only more spectrally efficient, it provides a much greater chance of channel availability at the point in time the user needs it. As more users are added and channel loading increases, more repeaters can be added to accommodate the extra loading. And, through digital coding, conversation privacy between users of the network is maintained. Finally, if you run an operation which needs more than one communication channel, say you need an alternate channel for your supervisors to converse among themselves in privacy without field workers being able to hear, trunked technology allows us to provide literally hundreds of talkgroups so that we can provide multi-channel service economically.

In the near future, we will add digital repeater service to our "tall tower" concept. In existing analog systems, conversations carried on while a unit is operating in the extreme fringes of the coverage area may at times have static along with the voice. This can sometimes make the conversation hard to understand. In a digital system, the voice is noise free all the way to the point at which the signal disappears completely. In other words, if you hear the voice, you will hear it clearly. Watch closely as we plan to make this service available very soon. Stay tuned!
