Introducing the ComLink™ BCR-40U/50V FM Repeater System by BridgeCom Systems, Inc. The BCR Repeater provides a feature rich repeater/base station. Packed with loads of RF power, this dual fan-cooled unit can become a community repeater, a 16 channel base station, manage a channel in an LTR® trunking system, and much more.

How Does It Work?
TL-NET combines all the features of single-site LTR with our VoIP backbone to provide a multi-site LTR trunking solution. All the benefits of single-site LTR are maintained except now it’s multi-site. All dispatch calls are made using transmission trunking. Setup between sites is extremely fast! In fact, just as fast as handshaking with the local site. Your customers will notice no difference other than their range is extended. View a diagram of the system.
How Do I Use It?
Our system works with standard LTR® capable radios from Icom, Kenwood, Motorola, and many others. Use your existing equipment! No special option boards to install, firmware upgrades or special radio programming required. Each site’s Gateway supports a web server that allows you to control and monitor your system from a PC with an internet connection. From a web browser you can validate/invalidate talk groups, adjust TX voice and data levels, enable/disable network access and much more.
What Equipment is Required?
- Each site requires a high-speed internet connection which can be a T1, cable modem, or DSL.
- Each repeater site consists of one TL-NET Gateway and an array of repeaters. The Gateway connects your system to the internet and manages the audio channels to and from the repeaters.
- One TL-NET Server is required to oversee the entire network. The Server can be located anywhere.
- One TL-NET LTR controller is required per repeater. To meet this need we offer two choices: You can go with our CS-540TL-Net Repeater/Controller package, which combines our RF equipment with the TL-NET LTR controller, or you can purchase the TL-NET controller by itself to connect to your own RF equipment.

Voice Alarm Encoders (VAE) from Midian Electronics can have a voice message stored them. When the emergency input is grounded the VAE will transmit an emegency ANI (i.e. MDC1200, DTMF, etc.) and the prerecorded voice message. The VAE-10 is a desktop box unit and the VAE-1 series are modules that can be wired or plugged into a two-way radio. There is also a version of the VAE-1 available in a speaker microphone with or without GPS.
Here are some common applications:
- Equipment Failure Notification : The input of the VAE can be connected to equipment such as tower lights or backup generator, so that when the tower light goes out it can send a voice message stating “Tower 3 light is off.” This warning can be sent periodically multiple times or continuously until reset. For backup power, when the backup is activated a message such as “Backup power is on.”
- Emergency Alert: Public safety dispatchers do no want field radio users to talk on a channel without need when there is an active emergency. The dispatch can have the VAE send a voice message such as “Emergency alert keep channel clear.” This message can be sent periodically until reset.
- Emergency Location and Lone Worker: The VAE is ideal for providing voice location messages for Public Safety (firefighters and police) or for lone workers in areas where GPS location is not available. Such as when in a large multiple floor structure or underground. If the emergency input is activated (by a button press or the lone-worker/man-down feature) then the VAE will send an emergency ANI to identify to the dispatcher who is in trouble and then the voice message will follow to inform the dispatcher the distressed worker’s last recorded location. This enables the rescuers to concentrate their search efforts in one area of the building rather than splitting their search efforts between ten stories. Locator tones can also be generated to provide an audible alert to the searchers.

Double your channel capacity – IDAS doubles the capacity of the current 12.5kHz channel allocation. Icom allows you to meet any narrow banding requirements today, and provides a solution to any future spectrum deficiencies.
Digital/Analog mixed mode operation – The IC-FR5000 series can receive both analog and digital signals on a signal channel. You can partially introduce the IDAS system, while using the existing analog radios in a system. The IDAS system allows you to scale migration to narrow band digital at your own pace and need.
Network Interface (Option – Available in the future) – The IDAS repeater will have a network interface (option) and can be connected to a LAN or the Internet via Ethernet cable. Communication range is vastly extended by the Internet connection and eliminates the need for expensive leased lines. When connected to a PC via a LAN or the Internet, you can remotely maintain the repeater configuration remotely via your PC.
Digital Trunking capability is another future option that will be available.
- IDAS Digital / Analog FM
- Two RF Modules in one unit (option)
- 50 Watt RF Output 25 Watt Full Duty
- 5-Tone, DTMF, CTCSS, DTCS
- 2U height rackmount
- 32 Channel memory, dot-matrix LCD Display
