What functions does a two way radio have?

A two way radio doesn’t rely on a mobile network therefore eliminates the chance of your communications cutting out or worse, falling down completely.  A two way radio come with many features:

  • One to one calls
  • One to group calls
  • One to many calls
  • Up to 32 channels
  • Digital text function
  • Lone worker
  • Call alert
Two way radios are a fail safe, effective means of communications.  Radios do not have to rely on third party networks such as O2, Vodafone and  Three for coverage.  Two way radios are independent and therefore are excellent for use in rural areas or places with poor mobile signal.

With their independent coverage, they bring peace of mind when in a situation where Health and Safety is important.

Do you need the radios to work in a hilly area?

Do you live in a built up area?

In order to establish if radios will work in your area without the use of additional equipment, we can carry out a topography survey to establish the ‘lay of the land’.

VHF and UHF radio waves transmit on ‘line of sight’ (give or take 25%) signals can not go through or over large hills / mountains.

To overcome this problem and to increase the distance covered, a repeater can be used to ‘re-transmit’ the signal.

Repeaters can be mounted on a pole or mast or made portable should the area covered, be variable during an event (we can help with this)
