The week of February 11th officials from PEPRO and Motorola were on hand for the Acceptance Test Procedures (ATP) and training for the City of Miami Fire-Rescue’s Commander Secure Mobile Radio Site (SMRS) 850. The SMRS 850 was delivered on the 11th and testing and deployment training took place on the 12th at the site of the Orange Bowl.

The PEPRO SMRS 850 will allow the City of Miami Fire-Rescue department to rapidly restore critical communications after a natural or man made disaster. The SMRS 850 can also be used to increase communications capabilities during events when increased security is demanded.

The City of Miami chose to have their SMRS 850 outfitted with Motorola communications gear for a 10 channel trunked system. The SMRS 850 has 120 available rack units when Motorola racking is installed or 135 rack units when PEPRO racking is installed.

All PEPRO Secure Mobile Radio Sites (SMRS) have unguyed articulating antenna towers that meet TIA/EIA wind loading standards for up 120 MPH, vertical antenna separation, and are shielded to provide protection from lightning, Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP), Electromagnetic Interference (EMI), and Radio Frequency Interference (RFI).
