  • Two-way radios do not rely on mobile networks so can be used in remote areas or at events where mobile coverage is poor

What features do hire radios have?

All our hire radios come with several features available:

  • One to one calls
  • One to group calls
  • One to many calls
  • Up to 32 channels
  • Lone worker
  • Call alert

Depending on your event requirements, our team can programme your hire radios to work with existing radios you may have that contain private frequencies. We can also set up the radio to have dedicated channels, specific people, or teams.

E.g. in a hospitality setting you may have 20-30 radios in use at one time, but your management personnel need to be able to speak privately. A dedicated channel for management allows for private communications and no interruptions.
