7 Popular Reasons Customers Give for Buying a Travelers Information Station

No Ongoing Equipment Costs

An Information Radio Station is effectively an appliance for which there is very little, if any, ongoing or annual costs to operate, maintain and keep licensed.

No Middleman

Information Radio Stations are used to speak directly to the public without the budgetary costs, reliability concerns and access issues introduced by a third-party carrier such as the telephone company, internet provider or a broadcast radio/TV station.

No Special Device

Citizens typically utilize a standard automobile radio receiver to hear information. There is nothing that they need to purchase to gain access to the broadcast.

No Electricity = No Problem

Most Information Radio Stations and the vehicle radios that receive them operate on batteries. When grid power goes down, this method of communication is designed to be “up.”

No Obsolescence

Conventional radio technology has been a mainstay for almost 100 years and will not soon be superseded or made obsolete.

No Visual Limitation

The medium of radio is an ideal way to present detailed, changing information to the public without distraction and in a way difficult to match with text messages, static signs or other strictly visual media.

No Physical Constraints

Information Radio Stations may be at fixed locations or portable. Or both fixed and portable. Portability allows an information radio service to easily move locations, to tailor its presence and area of coverage to the emergency at hand.
