Within IT, we use Motorola DTR650 Digital radios: (Does not require an antenna)

-          We went with this model because we needed something just for IT and did not want to interfere with the public safety system.


Public Safety and Facilities uses a higher quality radio: (Requires a central antenna and repeater)

-          You will probably want to bring in some type of vendor to assist. We used a local vendor that allowed us to test the different models on our campus.

-          We also have emergency call boxes on campus that will connect right to the Public Safety radios.

-          We are on 75 acres of land and we are right in the flight path of an airport, so we have some complications with radio frequency.

We are also a small campus with approximately 500 undergrad students and we can walk to all buildings in under 5 minutes.


Our public safety officers use cell phones from Sprint/Nextel as walkie talkies.


Our buildings and grounds and facilities staff use digital Motorola walkie talkies.


Both work well around campus and in buildings.
