Hi everyone I recently conceptualized an idea for a new emergency communication device to be utilized by first responders.  I am calling it “Spot Fire” and it would be a kit that when deployed will provide a boost to the signal used by our hand held radios.  It is currently in the “Conceptualization” phase I am just looking for feed back and support.  So come out and check it out I submitted the Idea to Quirky.com, I am including a link so people can find it.

    Send your idea to the Missoula Fire lab. They have a form for employee suggestions, and even if you are not FS, take ideas and check them out.

    Just checking, but You do realize we have all different strength radios already? Some makes have 10x the power of a new Bendix King KNG, it just matters on terrain, etc. (bottom of a steep canyon vs. open flat land)
