The article discusses the implementation and integration of land mobile radio (LMR) systems. An LMR system's purpose is to provide radio coverage for mobile and portable radio units and fixed base or control stations within a certain geographic area. LMR systems need to have a main power source and a back up power such as batteries and chargers and inverters. LMR sites need to be set up with protection such as fences, fire protection, and grounding that shields LMR equipment from lightning.
