BEAM Radio: more than 30 years in Radio Communication business.

Beam Radio Inc.’s history dates back to more a quarter of a century, beginning in 1976, when the company started business by taking advantage of the booming citizen band (CB) radio market. After early success, the company advanced immediately on to the two-way radio business. In 1977, Beam Radio Inc. installed the first GMRS repeaters in the State of Florida.

Uniden America Corporation started manufacturing backbones and trunking radios in 1984. Beam Radio Inc. took advantage of the opportunity to venture into this field by purchasing a -5 channel trunking system- designed with the old RCA trunking format-from TACTEL-. Beam Radio Inc, converted the system to LTR and started marketing Uniden radios in Dade and Broward counties. The company began similar efforts in the Latin America and Caribbean markets, taking almost immediate control of the region “low end” radio market.
