Eemits supplies Icom two-way radios radios to Sunderland RAF Air Cadets

Eemits Communications recently delivered six Icom IC-F4002 two-way radios to Sunderland Royal Air Force (RAF) Air Cadets

The purchased radios, which are IP54 rated and comply to the MIL-STD-810 military standard for robustness, will be used to improve communications and increase safety at major events including next year’s Sunderland airshow, key expeditions, day walks and many others.

Delivered earlier this week, the radios will be used to train the cadets in radio protocol and procedure, prior to their use at events. The training forms part of a full communication syllabus delivered by the RAF Air Cadets, which enables cadets to earn a Blue, Bronze, Silver or Gold badge.

Flight Lieutenant James Yeo based at the 111 Sunderland Squadron said that the radios will be used to teach essential life skills, such as confidence, good communication and diction.

With almost 56,000 air cadets and volunteers participating in events and adventures all over the country, the RAF Air Cadets offers the chance to give hands-on life experience of activities and courses that challenge and develop key skills.
