About Us

TX RX Systems, Inc. was founded in 1976 by Dan Kaegebein and Elliott Johnson.  The company headquarters is located in Angola, NY, a suburb of Buffalo.

Led by Dan’s technical ingenuity and Elliott’s business acumen, the company quickly became the industry leader in providing RF Conditioning products in the Land Mobile Radio market, aided by breakthrough inventions in T-Pass® Transmit Combiner, Auto-Backup® Tower Top Amplifier, base station antennas, and etc.  Over the years, TX RX’s RF Infrastructure Products have played a critical part in improving and optimizing numerous mission critical radio networks for both Public Safety and general two-way radio users.  The name “TX RX” has become the gold standard in the industry for high performance and high quality in both products and services.

TX RX Systems was acquired by Bird Technologies Group in 1995. Over the next twenty plus years, TX RX steadily grew the business, winning market share and expanding into new territories.  Building upon its reputation of providing customized system solution for the most challenging RF projects, TX RX became the “go-to supplier” for LMR applications in VHF, UHF, and 700/800 MHz frequency bands.

In 2018, Indutrade, a European conglomerate based in Sweden, acquired TX RX from Bird.  TX RX joined Combilent, a Denmark company also owned by Indutrade, to form the Combilent Group.  Combilent used to be a competitor to TX RX, but now the two companies have joined forces to offer a deeper and broader solution portfolio to both the OEM and Field Engineering markets worldwide.  The new TX RX will continue the tradition of offering best-in-class solutions for our customers, while leveraging the combined strength and resources of both companies in R&D, operations, and sales support.  We are BETTER TOGETHER serving our customers.
