Effective January 1, 2021, all new radios added to the ALMR system must be TDMA capable or enabled.  If you do not purchase radios that are already ENABLED, you will have to pay at a later date to have them flash upgraded to gain that functionality.

NOTE:  Additionally, no previously approved models currently authorized to operate on ALMR will be added if they are not TDMA capable.

Although the ALMR system does not currently support text messaging, future system upgrades may offer that capability.  Please consider your agency’s requirements (now and in the future) when purchasing subscriber units.  Always check the subscriber unit specifications, and software requirements, to ensure you know its capabilities.  When in doubt, ask your servicing agent or contact the Operations Management Office.

The following devices have been tested and approved to operate on the ALMR infrastructure.  Agencies should not purchase equipment that does not appear on this page without checking with the System Management Office or Operations Management Office first.  To see product brochure/spec sheet, click on the model number.

Reminder, any state agency radio maintenance or purchasing is completed through the Alaska Public Safety Communication Services (APSCS), which is the state radio shop. Home – APSCS – Statewide – Alaska Department of Public Safety
