New radios supplied to Lincoln City FC
Written by: Philip Mason | Published:

Local radio dealer RF Lincs has rolled out a suite of 50 Kenwood TK-D340 DMR radios to Lincoln City Football Club, following a match day trial. The radios have been issued to different teams around the ground, including those involved in match-day parking, stewards, security and the medical team.

The devices have replaced the club’s previous fleet of PMR446 radios, which were not keeping up with the demands of the site, which has grown in recent years.

Speaking of the fully licensed digital radios’ performance, the club’s operations manager and safety officer Darren Curtis said: “We were able to put the Kenwood DMR radios to the test on what transpired to be a very busy match day to get a true idea of their performance and suitability.

“We tested coverage to the limit, from the most remote parts of the site to the inside of buildings. Apart from the ability to communicate to areas which were dead spots in the past, what really impressed us was the ease of use of the radios, the lone-worker features and exceptional clarity of audio, even in the extremely noisy environment of the stadium.”

The radios are used for voice communication, with some units programmed to listen only and teams communicating with each other on different channels. They feature a 2-slot/1-carrier digital air interface. They can be upgraded with the addition of TKR-D710/D810 repeaters to improve coverage outside of the main stadium.
