Fully Working TETRA Motorola MTH800 Radios, Now Available From Tellycars
May 26, 2009
Tellycars has moved into the digital age with the help and support of Motorola UK with a consignment of MTH800 TETRA enabled radios for our props department.
Since late 2005, the UK police have rolled out the new digital system across the country and we have started to see it gradually worked it’s way into TV and film.
However many modern productions are still using old and outdated radios, which looks bad on TV
The MTH800 has a colour screen and GPS capabilities as well as built in mobile phone, oh and it works as a radio as well.
The radios have already been featured on ‘The Bill’, ‘Waterloo Road’, Wire in the Blood’ and ‘On a Knife Edge’.
