WHAT’S SPECIAL ABOUT THE SPECIALISTS?
Information Station Specialists, founded in 1983, provides an average of 65% of all traveler information stations and highway advisory radio systems installed in the United States. It is the only company whose full-time business is dedicated strictly to that endeavor.
ISS supports every system it offers for the life of the product and still provides no-cost support for products installed in the 1980s, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!
In today’s world, stability is important. Information Station Specialists has been under the same company name and management throughout its history and has been at the same contact address and telephone number continuously for more than 20 years.
ISS personnel average more than 14 years of experience per person in the provision of information radio systems.
ISS is fast. After 9/11, one city near New York licensed, purchased and installed a complete Emergency Advisory Radio System from ISS in fewer than 15 days. ISS can provide licensing and equipment for emergencies within hours.
ISS tailors products to many applications: emergency management, parks/recreation, transportation, tourism and offer licensed products for all. Offerings include not only radio but also signs to announce it.
ISS provides an exclusive rental service — Radio Express — for fairs, festivals, sporting events and conventions to broadcast parking, direction and event schedules.
ISS provides a true “turnkey” solution. Installation quotes, unless otherwise noted, are priced with all hardware (including support poles) and services (including installation of electrical and telephone services). Our competitors quote systems that ask the buyer to provide his/her own antenna poles and electrical and telephone installation work even though they call their quotes “turnkey.” ISS doesn’t ask the client to prepare the transmitter sites. We do it as part of our standard turnkey package.
Flexible Antenna Installation
ISS licensed radio systems provide a complete, inexpensive and flexible antenna system. ISS offers 5 different antenna/groundplane styles, none of which require 100-foot-radius grounding wires or ground rods that emit chemicals into the soil. This allows simple, safe antenna installation on building roofs, in adjacent yards and at locations where no buildings are available.
ISS’ 10-watt transmitter is unique. It is the only one made that can be synchronized with another unit, so that larger coverage areas can be created. It features synthesized operation, so changes in frequency don’t require surgery.
ISS even offers special broadcast systems that don’t require a license for applications where short range is sufficient.
ISS offers affordable signage products to help announce your radio signal to motorists, featuring exclusive embedded LEDs to grab attention, when situations are urgent.
Creativity in Portability
ISS created the first portable advisory radio system for Caltrans back in the 1980s, and portable systems are our claim to fame today. We offer custom portable systems for utility trailers and vans as well as for mobile command centers.
