About J & R Electronics
J&R Electronics, an Idaho corporation, has been serving the Inland Northwest since 1954. J&R stands for Jim Sr. and Ruth Lemm, the founders of the company.
J&R Electronics started out primarily as a two-way radio dealer but as of 2001 we also provide reliable high-speed Internet service to rural areas, both residential and commercial.
Another one of our specialties is setting up rural communication sites with alternative power systems. These sites have lower outage rates than those with commercial power, providing better service for our customers. Our Rathdrum Mountain site is a prime example of this, which has no commercial power and runs all year long with solar panels, propane thermos-electric generators, and batteries. J&R has over 30 radio communication sites in Idaho, Washington, and Montana as well as microwave Internet sites on Rathdrum Mountain, Mica Peak, Hoodoo Mountain, and Lewiston Hill. Our customers consist of a wide variety of companies including, school districts, electric utilities, government agencies, businesses, and individuals.
J&R Electronics has been offering quality wireless communications to North Idaho for more than 60 years! In keeping with the times, we now offer high speed, reliable internet service, and wireless networking. Plus, our Motorola digital radio system is second to none in coverage, ease of use and audio quality for any sized fleet.
