AmpliVox Sound Systems introduces the Radio Hailer emergency sound system, which offers emergency communications within large outdoor areas such as campgrounds, parks, or school campuses.

In a school disaster situation, administrators and public safety personnel can coordinate efforts from a secure location without the need for telephone or electric service. The audio coverage of the Radio Hailer’s amplifier and speaker can deliver instructions either indoors or out.

AmpliVox’s Radio Hailer communication system connects to two 2-watt MURS radios. One radio acts as the receiver, the other as the transmitter. The Radio Hailer includes a 50-watt amplifier, as well as a 120dB warning siren. In addition to the radios, users can connect to the amp through wireless microphones or wired mics, available as options. The Radio Hailer has a battery life of up to 200 hours on 10 D-cell alkaline batteries, or can be powered by optional NiCad batteries.
