Radio Systems

As specialists of legacy, current and emerging technologies, we’re used to change – it’s what we do. Our comprehensive technical capability means our in-house team of experienced industry accredited engineers can offer solutions for all aspects of radio engineering.

Whether your project requirements involve maintenance, installations or upgrades, we’ll almost certainly have done it before. We’ve worked in, around and on top of some notoriously difficult locations, including the highest mast and RETB station on the rail network, at Glencoe.
