2-Way Radio Communications Business Case Studies
Gearing Up With Icom – NZDH Outdoor Action Downhill Series
Ninety competitors and hundreds of spectators came together on Friday 12th December for a weekend at Dome Valley, Auckland for the fifth and final race of The NZDH Outdoor Action Downhill Series. As downhill mountain biking enthusiasts whizzed by, they soon found that the track was treacherous thanks to the downpour of rain in the past few days. It was lucky that event organiser Mark Sprosen had taken precautions by investing in Icom radios for the event so that communications between emergency staff and volunteers were clear and reliable at all times.
Organisers said that it was refreshing to see the event run seamlessly with all track marshals, safety teams and organisers each carrying an Icom IC-F1000 over the weekend.

Chosen for their unbeatable performance and reliability, 12 of Icom’s latest UHF radios, the IC-F2000, were purchased for the TOPSHOP TOPMAN store from Icom NZ’s Principal dealer Signals NZ Ltd.
Christchurch City Council goes digital with NXDN solution
When Christchurch City Council’s Civil Defence Emergency Management and Rural Fire Department (CDEM) wanted to replace their ageing communications equipment they chose to partner with Signals NZ and Icom to supply them with a fully functional radio system. The solution needed to seamlessly integrate with their IP network and be capable of offering software applications tailored to their specific communication needs. A solution using Icom NXDN was the optimum answer.
