Five Simple Things You Need to Consider Before Buying a Two-Way Radio System

two way radios

So you've decided to update and improve your company's two-way radio communications system. Excellent! But what next? Where do you start? What do you need to know?

Here at Wall to Wall Communications we have compiled a list of helpful considerations which you should think about before you place an order.

1. Where are you going to use the two-way radios?

This is important as it determines the range, power and capacity of the radios that will be supplied.

If you require radios for an open outdoor setting, such as a golf course or activity centre, then you will probably want VHF (very high frequency) radios. These provide excellent clarity and range. On the other hand, if you are looking for radios to use in a built up outdoor setting, or inside a building; a shopping centre for example, then UHF (ultra high frequency) are the walkie talkies for you. These will work better inside as they have the increased capability to transmit though obstructions such as walls.

2. Which extra features do you need?

Wall to Wall Communications supply radios from a wide range of manufacturers which come with many different features. This includes group calling capabilities, extra loud audio, monitors, key pads, squelch level control, hands free and multiple channels, some are even submersible. 

3. How many two-way radios will you need?

In some cases you may not need a radio for every member of staff. If you want to cater for multiple shift patterns it may be a good idea to invest in spare batteries rather than extra radios. Rapid chargers could also be considered.

4. Does durability matter?

If you know that the radios you hire or buy will be exposed to hostile environments such as construction sites it may be a good idea to get a radio which is very durable and robust such as a Hytera PD705. You should be aware that dust, gas, liquid and rough handling can all damage equipment. Investing in a model which is robust enough to handle reasonable usage requirements could save you money in the long run, as the walkie talkie itself would last longer.

5. Which extra accessories do you need?

Headsets, spare batteries, belt clips and ear pieces are often a necessity. All manufacturers produce accessories which work with their radios. However, Wall to Wall Communications are able to supply a wide variety of functional accessories that are designed to be compatible with any make or model of radio.
