Scott,

 

Within IT, we use Motorola DTR650 Digital radios: http://www.beelectronics.com/webapps/two-way/portables/dtr.jsp (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: http://www.beelectronics.com/webapps/two-way/portables/cp150.jsp (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.

Comments

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.
