Sepura radios set sail under new deal

Sepura radios are setting sail under a new deal between the company’s partner, Swedish Radio Supply, and the Swedish Sea Rescue Society (SSRS).

The hand-portable and mobile TETRA radios will support the SSRS’s 2200 volunteers and three full-time staff in patrolling inland waters and beaches and their continued rescue work.

Currently, the SSRS has 71 rescue stations and is involved in 80% of all sea rescues in Sweden.

According to Sepura, these stations will be supplied with STP9000, SC20 and SC21 radios, which can be programmed to meet their local base’s operational needs using the company’s Radio Manager software.

Sepura believes their radios were chosen for their high resistance against water and dust (IP65-IP68 rated) and seawater-induced salt corrosion, the SC20 and SC21’s ability to drain water from their speakers and STP9000’s safety features — including a ‘Wake-on-Alarm’ which allows users to initiate emergency calls even if the radio is off.
