Our staff has set up the communications van and OASIS satellite communications trailer. The large dish antenna provides telephone and Internet connections in a remote location. This van is one of three in the state and is based at Los Alamitos.

The goal is to have radios for every public service band to provide inter-operability between agencies. Seen above are radios that receive and transmit from HF to 900 MHz, including aircraft and marine bands. The commercial radios, mostly Motorola Spectras, are programmed with a laptop computer. Below each radio is a DB-25 connector used for connecting the laptop to the radio's programming port.
