About Us

Gem State Communications is a full-service two-way radio dealer offering a broad selection of communications services in southwest Idaho and eastern Oregon. Our area of operation encompasses some of the most rugged, remote and beautiful country in the lower 48 states including the mighty Salmon, River of No Return and Hell's Canyon, the deepest canyon in North America. Headquartered in Idaho's beautiful Capitol City of Boise, we sell and service a wide range of Analog voice, Digital voice and Data applications as well as Video solutions.

Our History

Since 1981, we have partnered with Motorola to provide two-way radio system design, sales, installation and service to vertical markets including commercial, agricultural, healthcare, manufacturing, transportation, public safety and government. We aligned with Motorola because we considered them to be the very best in the two-way radio industry. And we still do.

Our Mission & Accomplishments

Throughout the years, our objective has always been to create a professional culture that provides clear and consistent wins for our customers, our employees, our business and Motorola. We have proudly received many awards from Motorola recognizing our achievements; multi-year membership in the Pinnacle Club and multi-year winner of the Motostar Excellence Award are two examples. Our current Motorola designations are:
Platinum Channel Partner
Motorola Solutions Professional and Commercial Radio Elite Specialist
Motorola Solutions Service Elite Specialist (see Note)
Manufacturers Representative for State and Local Governments
Federal Market Manufacturers Representative

Note: As a result of our commitment to continuing education, training and meeting the stringent standards set by Motorola, Gem State Communications is the only Motorola Solutions Service Elite Specialist in the state of Idaho.
