REFURBISHMENT IS PROGRESSING AT A PACE.
1st November 2020
The Keep is now under full refurbishment and progressing at a pace. The Keep has been the home of Tacticom since 2006 and we named the wing of the keep in which we operated "The Communications Wing". Research has now shown that we were correct in this assumption and the Keep was indeed used a communications hub. In the interim period Repairs and service of radio equipment is being completed at other Tacticom locations, Please do not send equipment to the Keep but call 01752 777787 for a RTB number and best location to return your radio equipment for service or repair.

CHINA MANUFACTURERS ANNOUNCE PRICE INCREASES IN 2021
1st May 2021 (updated 03/06/21)
Nearly all two way radio manufacturers are announcing shortage of supply of essential DAC and ADC chip sets with prices increases ranging from 6% to 20%. Some existing radio models are being discontinued or alternative chip sets being used of which some of the features and functions are no longer available or indeed overall quality of the digital radio experience is compromised.
With chip manufacturing by Renesas and AKM of Japan being drastically reduced or stopped due to factory fires and nearly all Taiwanese chip manufacturers cutting production by 50% or more due to water shortages then it follows that prices for all two way radios will increase. Nearly all China manufacturers report upward price pressures from essential chip manufacturers and an increase in raw material costs. Other manufacturers from Korea, Taiwan and other regional manufacturers are sure to follow suit.
MEET THE NEW GRIZZLY. OUR TOUGHEST, MOST RUGGED TWO WAY RADIO EVER...
5th May 2021
Forest and field trials of the new GRIZZLY take place throughout May, June and July 2021, with our joint final improvements made by the end of August 2021. The new DMR digital GRIZZLY should be available from September 2021. These tests follow on from the original ruggedness tests undertaken in 2020 before Covid 19 lock down during which we subjected the GRIZZLY to some of the most creative toughness and ruggedness tests ever!
The Grizzly is without doubt the toughest radio we have tested so far. Spec will include DMR tier 1 and 11, MIL Spec 810 C,D,E,F & G. IP67 water proof. With 1.5 watts of audio all housed in a ultra tough, highly chemical resistant case which shrugs off most commercial and industrial uses. The new digital GRIZZLY is fully compatible with the digital HUSKY and available from launch in UHF - 400-470, VHF - 136 - 173 and UHF(H) 450-520MHZ.
