Which Two-Way Radio is Right for You?

Here are some fast facts about walkie talkies to help you decide what’s best for your business or organization. If you’re still not sure which two-way radios you should choose, take a few minutes to go through our two-way radio quiz, and we’ll help to point you in the right direction.

UHF and VHF each have their own benefits. UHF two-way radios offer the best coverage and penetration inside buildings. VHF is great in flat open areas or around wood structures.

What about power? Power plays a big part in achieving the range and coverage you need. You want a clear, crisp signal when you’re on the job. The more power, the better the coverage.

Channels can make all the difference. It’s pretty normal to have one channel per work group. You can use multi-channels if you’re separating multiple work groups. This way, managers, maintenance, security, etc. can all have different channels for easy communication.

Make sure your two-way radios are as rugged as they need to be. The Motorola two-way radios here at Tech Wholesale are built to withstand the demands of your business. They all meet Motorola’s accelerated life testing—and that includes a 5 foot drop to concrete!

Make the right choice for your business. Choose Motorola two-way radios.

Two-Way Radios Halloween Safety Tips

  • Small children should trick or treat in groups of two or more families—always with at least two adults. If you’re going around the neighborhood in several groups, it’s a good idea for a member of each group to have a two-way radio on hand. This helps keep everyone in the loop.
  • The same can be said for groups of older children. They should be required to go in groups of five or more kids. Equip them with two-way radios so that you know what path they’re taking, and when they can be expected back.
  • Carry an emergency whistle or pepper spray in case of a serious emergency.
  • Bring along a flashlight so that you can see where you’re going if things get a little too dark.
  • Keep an eye on the weather, too. Check in with the rest of your group via two-way radio if the weather turns bad. You can always bring everyone back to the house and have a last-minute Halloween party.

Two-way radios can help you stay safe and sound this Halloween.
