The TETRA system is compatible across a range of different handsets, which include the compact and lightweight ST7500 and ST7000 Motorola handsets.

At this year’s METSTRADE, Channel 28 will provide the opportunity for those attending to experience its portfolio of superyacht crew communication solutions

METSTRADE, Amsterdam 19th – 21st November 2019, Superyacht Pavilion, stand: 11.415

Channel 28 will be carrying out the first ever demonstrations of its brand-new TETRA radio solution for crew radios at this year’s METSTRADE show in Amsterdam. This is the latest addition to Channel 28’s ever-expanding cComm solution, which provides the most secure and easy to use superyacht crew communications on the market.

Commonly used by the UK emergency services, TETRA platforms offer secure, reliable and efficient communications. Channel 28’s solution is customised to meet the needs of larger yachts with up to 60 crew.

The TETRA system is compatible across a range of different handsets, which include the compact and lightweight ST7500 and ST7000 Motorola handsets. Driven by style as well as function, customer-facing crew can now benefit from clear and efficient voice communications in a form as sophisticated as their professional attire.

“TETRA, also known as Terrestrial Trunked Radio, is a technology used to provide the ‘mission critical’ private mobile communications services needed by professional users such as the emergency services.” said Adrian Hicks, Director of Channel 28. “We have introduced this platform to the cComm solution as privacy on superyachts is paramount, but it is also capable of transmitting across a much larger number of channels on much larger superyachts than standard Digital Mobile Radios.”

As well as the new TETRA radio solution, Channel 28 will demonstrate the cClear duplex engine room communications system, which debuted at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show. Channel 28’s Morse Service Call Button, an essential device for superyacht owners, will also be part of the cComm portfolio available to try.
