The User selects the channel according to his location. With the Tait Orca T5000 radios voting can be used so that the user is not aware of which repeater is selected. SELCALL can be used between units on either repeater. In addition we set up base stations at the entry gates powered by car batteries, as there is no AC power available.
In the days before the show the system is used to co-ordinate between the NCF Office and the stage management crew. Before Mobile & Marine Systems supplied this Tait T800II system there was no communication between the site and the head office.
During the show it is used by the Gate control, Transport co-ordinator, Security and the Emergency services. Every one is on the same system and is kept abreast of any problems that arise; enabling them to be dealt with in an efficient manner.
Due to the limited parking on site all private vehicles are parked about 5km away and buses are used to ferry the patrons in. This makes communication essential at the end when 20,000 people wish to leave as soon as the last performer has left the stage!
This is a long day for the organisers. It starts around 5am and will not end until the last reveller has left, around 11pm.
This Mobile Tait Repeater system has proved very useful in setting up short-term communication to other customers who may wish to have coverage for a particular area. We can link it back to any other repeater system by simply reprogramming the T2015.
For Mobile & Marine Systems it has also enhanced our short-term lease revenue as we can offer a quick and efficient service to anywhere in the island at short notice.
If Barbados was ever to have a major hurricane or national emergency this trailer based mobile repeater solution also features in the island's disaster management / emergency relief plan. It would be used to set up a mobile emergency communications network similar to the one that Mobile & Marine Systems set up in Grenada following Hurricane Ivan for the Grenada Police Force.
