Our Story

Tunnel Radio of America Inc. was founded in 1988 to meet the demand for better wireless communications in hard-to-reach places and remote environments. The first reliable VHF radio system in the United States was installed by Tunnel Radio at the Greens Creek mine near Juneau, Alaska, in 1989. The installation has been expanded many miles since and remains in full use. Tunnel Radio has also built innovative wireless systems for mining and drilling operations in 18 states and several foreign countries.

In 1993, Tunnel Radio launched our first railroad system. Since then, we have expanded our product line to encompass the industry’s changing needs. Our Tunnel Radio Link technology has allowed the two largest railroads in the world — Union Pacific and BNSF — to double their long-haul freight-carrying capacity and reduce fuel costs. Tunnel Radio is working to reduce fuel consumption, increase capacity and reduce freight traffic on U.S. highways. Other countries are following our lead.
