Tom Hillery with Amateur Radio Emergency Service
I recently purchased the Unication G5 pager in VHF/700/800 version to facilitate reliable monitoring of our local fire, law, and EMS agencies. The State of North Carolina migrated to the statewide VIPER digital trunking system, rendering much of my personal monitoring equipment ineffective. As a disaster medical, SAR, and emergency communications volunteer, being able to monitor our served agencies is critical to insure reliable message handling and situational awareness. Right out of the box, the G5 was easy to program, provides clear audio with enough punch to be heard over background noise, and the sturdy construction is reassuring during every day carry. As this was a personal purchase, I wanted to insure quality and reliability for the investment. The G5 fits the bill! Can’t wait for a VHF/UHF/700/800 version!
