Over the years Galcom has been asked to install small FM radio stations in areas that can be troublesome at times. The possibility of the station being stolen or vandalized is a concern. How do we avoid this until things settle down?
Galcom has also been asked to support relief efforts with communication equipment. When power lines are down, how can victims receive vital information on where to find clean water, food, or medical attention? Galcom has distributed thousands of solar-powered, fix-tuned radios to supply people with the means to hear important emergency broadcasts. What happens when broadcasting operations are down as well?
Introducing the OmniStation, an all-in-one portable FM broadcast station. In about one hour, this microphone-to-antenna solution can be on the air. Main studio and broadcast components are contained in two rugged flight cases. These can also be taken as accompanied baggage on a commercial flight. The OmniStation comes with a high-gain omnidirectional antenna and runs on universal voltage 100-240 AC.
