With so many radios available for hire it can be difficult to decide which one is best for you and your business, with many options including digital radios, analogue radios. In addition to these types of radios, there are a multitude of different functions that can be included to make your radio fit the needs of your business perfectly. At Wall to Wall Communications we have been dealing with two way radios for over 40 years, so we have a wealth of expertise and knowledge as well as a wide variety of radios available to choose from. To help you whittle it down, we have created a guide on everything you need to know about the Hytera PD505, a popular two way radio for hire for offices, universities and schools.
Whilst the Hytera PD505 is a Digital Two Way radio, one of the benefits is that it can function in both digital and analogue modes. This means the radio can be used alongside older radios that you may already have within your business This makes this radio extremely versatile and a cost effective way for your business to migrate to digital.
The Hytera PD505 is also extremely lightweight and sleek. The size of this radio is 115 x 54 x 27mm whilst the weight is only 260g which makes this easy to carry around and have on your person. This makes it a perfect communication tool for offices, schools and universities as it does not get in the way and can be discreetly carried around hassle free. The compactness of this device should not fool you though, this radio can allow communication to pass over long distances, for example, if your office or schools span over multiple sites, this radio will allow you to connect between the two.
The Hytera PD505 is rugged and reliable, allowing it to keep up with the demands of a busy work environment. This radio is compliant with MIL-STD-810 C/D/E/F/G standards. This will give you and your business the peace of mind that whatever demands need to be met, your two way radio will be able to keep up and keep you communicating.

Whether you are operating outside in the rain, or on a construction site, your radio will keep functioning all day with its long battery life (with a 1500mAh battery).
What makes the Hytera PD505 one of the most popular radios, is it’s a super user-friendlydesign and an affordable price. If you currently use or are interested in the PD505, you may also like the PD405, PD605 or PD705 models.
If you are working as part of a large business, two way radios can become a vital system in ensuring there is consistent and reliable communication between staff members. Large businesses often span multiple sites which makes reliable two way communication even more important but more difficult to obtain. Mobile phone signals cannot be relied upon as signal coverage can be patchy and inconsistent which can inhibit the safety and running of your business, which is where two way radios come in. Regardless of whether your business is based underground, in a rural area, in a built up city with dense signal blocking buildings or spanning all three, two way radios can be your solution. With the help of a leaky feeder, your two way radio signal can be trusted to keep you in contact and your business running smoothly. But what is a leaky feeder, and how does a leaky feeder cable work?
What is a leaky feeder?
A leaky feeder cable also known as a ‘radiating cable’ is an alternative to a traditional network of RF antennas. Comparatively, a normal feeder cable is what is used to connect a repeater to an antenna and is designed to trap a signal within the cable and inhibit any other interfering signals penetrating the cable. In contrast, a leaky feeder cable is specially designed to ‘leak’ signal out of the cable in a controlled manner. Simultaneously, the leaky feeder cable will allow a controlled amount of signal to penetrate into the length of the cable. In summation, a leaky feeder cable essentially behaves like a very long antenna for radios, allowing the signal to reach where it would have not been able to without one.
When do you need a leaky feeder?
In circumstances like tunnel works where it is impractical to install a network of traditional RF antennas or where Licensing restrictions limit signal from radiating outside of a building like a large building in a city centre, Leaky Feeder may be a good option.
A particular case study that Wall to Wall Communications worked on is the Tottenham Court Road Underground Upgrade. The challenge here was that the staff needed to be able to communicate from underground to above ground, penetrating thick layers of concrete. The solution was to install a leaky feeder antenna system. Installing a leaky feeder cable allowed for the staff working underground to have a consistent and clear connection with the workers above ground level, a vital function in the smooth running of the underground tunnel.
Installing a leaky feeder
Businesses in need of a leaky feeder typically require this enhanced signal and communication 24 hours a day. For this reason, leaky feeders are generally installed on a permanent basis.
With over 40 years of experience, Wall to Wall Communications are experts in two way radios and what is required to ensure signal is consistent, wherever you are based. Wall to Wall has installed leaky feeder systems to a number of companies throughout the UK.
