Use the Tech Wholesale Radio Finder to Determine the Perfect Radio for You

Buy your ideal two-way radio with the help of your own personal assistant! No, we’re not going to show up on the doorstep of your home or business, but our one-of-a-kind Tech Wholesale Radio Finder is the next best thing. After taking a quick quiz, this amazing tool will suggest the best two-way radios to meet your specific requirements. You can then make a side-by-side comparison of these recommended radios, decide which one’s the best for your application and order it right then and there. Here are a few key things to take into consideration.

  • Decide between family or business use. Our radios at Tech Wholesale are divided into home or business use, as the features and requirements are different for these two groups of users.
  • Name a budget. If your budget is limited, it might be best to choose a recreational two-way radio rather than a business model. You can also shop by price in most categories.
  • Check out compatibility. If you already use 1 or more radios, make sure that the new radio is compatible with current radios that you’ll want to communicate with. Not all models are compatible.
  • UHV versus VHF radios. You’ll be able to narrow your search by deciding between a UHF or VHF radio. This will depend upon where you plan to use it.
  • Where will you use your radio? Ultra-High Frequency (UHF) radios, because of their shorter waveforms, can better penetrate around obstructions and are ideal for indoor or mixed indoor/outdoor use. Very High Frequency (VHF) radios can cover a greater distance with less power, but they only work well if there is a clear line of sight without obstructions. Therefore, they’re best for outdoor use on relatively flat terrain with few buildings or trees.
  • How many groups of people will use these radios? For a family or a small company, you might need just a single channel. Larger organizations with multiple departments will likely want a radio that has 2 or more channels, so that each department can have their own dedicated channel. This allows for private communication within a department, in addition to communicating with all employees.
  • Choose the power setting. Handheld two-way radios typically use between .5-5 watts of power to broadcast a signal. Business radios are available in 1 watt to 5 watt models, while current FRS models (Family Radio Service) broadcast at .5 watts.

With our Radio Finder, finding the best two-way radio has never been easier!
