The two way radio system used by PDX Emergency Communications is a new radio system called the Preparatory Emergency Groups or PEG radio system. This radio system is adaptable to many uses including emergency preparedness, civil groups, general safety, emergency communication organizations, disaster relief agencies and much more.  It's the first professional level radio system that can be made to bridge the gap between government and civil organizations. 


The PEG radio systems were designed out of necessity by Chief Christopher Cunha of the United Civil Emergency Services Agency and owner of US Preparatory starting as far back as 1997 with recent developments to the licensing programs, hardware and core technologies in 2015.   PEG radio systems are a flexible radio system made specifically to serve the civil communication needs from a large neighborhood to a county or state and anything in-between.  PEG systems can be used by any user authorized by the license holder,  leading to versatility unmatched when compared to personal radio services such as CB, Amateur Radio or FRS.   Revisit this page from time to time to see updates about the PDX PEG radio network.
