Bendix King Radio Kits for CALFIRE

BK RadioCommand Series

The preferred radio of CALFIRE is the Bendix King Command series.

For well over 60 years wildland firefighters have relied upon Bendix King Radios for their primary communications transceiver. Nationwide, Forest Service incident command centers are prepared and equipped to program, repair and assist with these radios during local and regional fire emergencies. The Command (CMD) version of these radios have a special feature which allows its user to create a programmable COMMAND GROUP on the fly. The GPH Commander has served CALFIRE well for many years. There are still many of these GPH Commanders out in the field, but they are being phased out in favor of the all new KNG P150 Command portable radio.

Radio KitsChoose Wisely

By buying your Bendix King Radio as a kit you can achieve a significant savings over buying each piece individually.

If your job requires you to primarily work from a vehicle, like a water tender or bulldozer, you might consider rechargeable batteries and a vehicle charger. If you primarily work on foot, such as operating a chainsaw, you might consider clamshells that use AA batteries. While the AA battery clamshells do not last as long as the rechargeable batteries, the AA batteries are easily resupplied and do not require a charger or power source for the charger. If you use your radio even when you are not on a wildfire incident, then you should consider both clamshells and rechargeable batteries.
