Pepro Installs 11 New Radio Sites For The USDA Forest Service

Oct 02, 2018 | Posted in News

Pepro LLC (, the leading manufacturer of shielded enclosure systems for electronics, has completed the installation of 11 sites for the USDA Forest Service, including 4 fly-in sites. The Forest Service installs involved traveling over 9,000 miles. The sites were are located in eight states including Oregon (2), Montana, Colorado, Wyoming, Nevada, Washington, Utah and Arizona. Four additional sites will be installed for the National Park Service in October, two of which are fly in installations.
The work was accomplished in two legs from July 8 to August 8, with each installation taking less than a day to complete, often less than four hours. Pepro began offering its installation service in 2011 in response to customer demand for completely hands-off site ordering that eliminated any risks, delays or liability resulting from handling installation with their own staff.

“We have designed our sites so nearly anyone can install them, but there are distinct benefits to using an experienced installation team, especially in remote locations,” said Kelly Lander, president of Pepro LLC. “Any missing bolt can cost a day in travel time, and securing qualified technicians can cause logistical problems when agencies are short staffed. Our installation team is on call and fully prepared to make every installation hassle-free.”

Thanks to the design of the Pepro shelter, there is no environmental impact to the radio site locations. There is no need for a poured concrete foundation that will far outlast a traditional shelter. In addition, the equipment protection in Pepro’s Faraday Cage design offers the best protection available from lightning strikes, EMI and RFI – an important consideration given the location and exposure of these sites. A third round of installations is planned for later in the summer, bringing the seasonal total to 11 radio sites.

Pepro’s patented Faraday Cage technology for shielding against lightning strikes, Electromagnetic Pulses (EMP), Electromagnetic Interference (EMI), Passive Intermodulation (PMI), and Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) has protected sensitive communications equipment for 25 years without a single loss. Every Pepro shelter meets rigorous testing standards, sustaining a one million volt, 82,000 amp direct strike with less than ten micro joules entering the enclosure.
