60 seconds with DCRS's Bernie Goosman

Bernie Goosman, DCRS's senior systems engineer, talks to us about his time in the two-way radio industry

How do you spend your time at work?

Commissioning voice and data radio systems. They’re all application-based so I work with clients to integrate alarms, building controls and voice over IP into existing onsite systems. This is over a multitude of sectors and locations including iconic buildings, large retail complexes and super-yachts!

What do you think has been your most unforgettable project so far?

Liverpool One – it was our first multi-site Linked Capacity Plus system with an extremely complex DAS system. It is the only site we and Motorola Solutions have done where there are four sites with full overlapping coverage.

What has been the most unusual thing that you have seen while working in the radio sector?

Being offered AK-47 machine guns in Saudi Arabia while installing a radio system for a prince, or seeing the solid gold bird cages that a prince kept his falcons in, in the holding part of a jumbo jet while putting in a radio system.
