Our Staff

Owner and Operator Mr. Doug Vines is a graduate of Washington Technical Institute. He holds a General Radiotelephone Operators License and is a PCIA certified technician. Opening his doors in 1978, Doug started selling radio equipment to farmers throughout the Columbia Basin. His customers found that the high-powered radios were a much more reliable form of communications over the ever popular Citizen's Band or CB radio . He continues to offer the same service as he did more than 30 years ago, with the help of his staff. Doug has obtained an Avtec System Maintainer Certification and is also certified to service and install Pyramid Communications' Vehicular Repeater systems.
