J & R Communications and Electronics, Inc. emerged on the scene in April 1995, and since that time has become known across north Mississippi as the "go to" people for innovations in 2-way radio, paging and closed-circuit TV. Owners Robert and Janette Palmer started the business from their home and within a few months had outgrown the space that was available.

Having used space in various automotive shops in the area for installation of mobile radio equipment and mobile phones, they realized the need for a permanent facility that would house both their operational office and offer space for equipment repair as well as room for vehicular installation. In the fall of 1995 acreage was purchased just north of the intersection of Highway 45 and Ripley Road. In the spring of 1996 construction was begun on the facility that they had often dreamed about. In June of that year, it became a reality when they moved in.

Over the next few years, the electronics line was expanded to consumer items such as CB radios, scanners and video navigation equipment. As more "walk-in" customers became the norm, a need was seen for a full showroom with equipment and accessories on display. In 1999 the need for more space was realized and several hundred square feet of showroom space, office space and storage was added.

Early in the beginning of business, J & R Communications was able to secure a dealership from Kenwood Communications, a 50-year old manufacturer of electronic equipment. This line has become the backbone of the business, along with dealerships for Maxon Land Mobile Radio, Midland Radio, E. F. Johnson Radio, and, in 2005, BK-Relm Radio.

In December of 2002, J & R Communications purchased Electronic Specialists, Inc. of Tupelo and has continued to operate both companies since that time.

A new product line of XM Satellite Radio was added in the fall of 2005, and J & R Communications continues to seek new avenues in electronics in which to better serve their customer base.
