About LA Radio

LA Radio cc was established in September 1999 by the two existing members, Matthew Skey, and Dion Long.
The company employs five full-time staff members, and one part-time employee.
We also use several reliable sub-contractors for larger projects.

We have sold and/or installed two way radio systems in over 30 African countries, notably South Africa, Mozambique, Democratic Republic of Congo, Angola, Zambia, Uganda, Lesotho, Nigeria, Ghana, and Gabon.


Matthew is one of the best known characters of the South African two way radio industry.
He started working for Motorola in 1975 and might still be working for them if political pressure had not forced Motorola to disinvest from South Africa in the 80s.
Matthew's wealth of experience has been gained throughout his journey with the radio industry, from the days of crystal controlled radios and pagers through to synthesised radios, and now into digital radio systems.
Matthew's key client for many years now is Sasol Synthetic Fuels who maintain a very complex TETRA digital trunked system, arguably the most complex privately owned radio system in Africa.


Dion is the technical side of the team.
He is  a qualified radio technician and has been in the radio industry since the early 90s.
He has developed a range of helmet mounted headsets for several of our motor racing clients.
Dion looks after most of LA Radio's security industry clients and several South African mines. Dion is able to create and maintain complex radio systems such as TETRA  used by large companies to maintain two-way communication in any terrain
