This white paper describes different types of cavities and provides a basic summary of how cavity combiners create paths for multiple signals to reach a single antenna with minimum interferences between them.
This practical and helpful white paper addresses the basic techniques on how to properly filter as it applies to the transmission and reception of radio signals.

TRADE SHOW/EVENT HIGHLIGHTS
Sinclair Technologies works closely with its partners and distributors all over the world. Sinclair and Kyodo co-exhibited at the 2017 PMR Expo which ran from Nov 28 – 30 in Cologne, Germany.
The latest industry trends, challenges, and questions within the Canadian public safety communications market were discussed at the recent APCO Canada Conference and Tradeshow held at Caesars in Windsor, Ontario, November 6-9. Leading experts, professional speakers, and colleagues representing public-safety communications agencies across Canada were in attendance to take in the country’s premier industry event.
Sinclair Technologies is revving up for an eventful and busy 2018. But first, the team had to review what went well and areas of improvement at this year’s internal sales conference. A variety of topics were discussed at the sales conference and as a team, a plan was built for a bigger and brighter 2018.
The Association of Entrepreneurs in Radio Communication of Québec (AERCQ) gathered together on October 18, 2017 to put on the first Radio Communication Show in Boucherville, Quebec. Sinclair exhibited along side its Quebec partner, Production Electronique. It was a great opportunity to showcase Sinclair products to the Quebec market and provide local support to the dealers at the show.
