Hi %%First Name%%,
Welcome to the July 2018 edition of the eEngineering.com Newsletter. Our newsletter is designed to provide our customers with the latest two-way radio, wireless communications, and security solutions news. Trouble viewing the newsletter, see it here.
Barry Wangsness has been part of the Electronic Engineering family for almost 25 years. Working as the Mason City Branch Manager, Barry juggles managing Electronic Engineering’s North Central Iowa branch while simultaneously working with customers across a wide array of industries including private companies, schools and public safety. Whether it’s managing installations and accounting in the office or in the field, working on specific customer needs, Barry works hard to make sure we are doing our very best for existing and new customers alike.

We asked him the following questions to get his insight on the industry:

What is one of the most significant technological shifts you’ve seen happen in your time in the industry?

Barry: I have seen an incredible amount change in our industry over the last 25 years. I’ve seen radios function at all levels of communication, their evolution has been fascinating to watch. I’ve worked with radios from the time when they could place phone calls on-the-go before the cell phone even existed to now having the ability to receive GPS tracking through the radios themselves. The form and function of the radio has seen a large transition and it keeps getting smarter!

What’s a recent favorite project you’ve worked on?

Barry: Things have been really busy in the North Central part of our state. We work on a wide array of projects from public safety to manufacturing. Recently, we completed a project with an IP site connect using satellite dishes at remote locations spanning several acres of agricultural land. Due to its location, there is no internet connection available and no structure high enough to cover a distance adequate to reach the main facility. Safety is the main concern of this customer, making sure its employees in remote locations always have direct communication with the main plant is critical.

We set up 3 separate repeaters at the varying lots and have engineered it so all repeaters key up at the same time, enabling consistent and reliable communication that spans all locations.

What is one thing that readers/friends might be surprised to know about you?

Barry: I am a certified scuba diver and have been diving for over 10 years.

What are some of the things you like to do in your free time/hobbies?

Barry: I enjoy boating, motorcycle riding and golfing.

Barry lives in Northwood with his wife, Lisa and his stepdaughter Erika who is off to college at the University of Iowa!
As events around the state continue to amp up their security, Electronic Engineering provided a unique system for the for popular Cedar Falls festival, Sturgis Falls.

Our Waterloo office installed security cameras around the grounds to help keep vendors and families safe. Police and organizers were able to view 16 different camera angles from their tablets. This provided a seamless and secure way for the event staff to keep tabs on desired locations at the click of a button.
