Two-Way Radio Appreciation: Thanks for Over 100 Years!

The year is winding to a close, and it feels like a good time to take stock of where we’ve been. For many of you, that might mean thinking about what you’ve done with your life this year—personal, professional, or otherwise. For others, it might mean tallying up a list of accomplishments or thinking about what you might like to do better in 2013. For us, it’s all about looking at the great things you can (and should!) do with two-way radios. That all starts with taking a quick look at the storied history of these unique little gadgets.

Did you know that the first two-way radio technology was available as early as 1907? Hard to believe that over 100 years have passed since the dawn of the two-way radio! By 1912 (that’s still 100 years ago!), military and commercial ships were equipped with two-way radios.

Boy, have we come a long way…

Since then, two-way radios have been used for a multitude of applications. These days, we think about two-way radios being used by security guards, industry workers, and folks in retail. Now, more than ever, we’re thankful for this unique technology and the ease it’s brought to our lives.

Here’s to another 100 years!

Two-Way Radios: Helpful for the Hunter

In many parts of the country, the Monday after Thanksgiving holds special meaning. It’s not because there’s an extra day to spend with the family… It doesn’t even have anything to do with those delicious turkey leftovers. For many folks out there, the Monday after Thanksgiving is the beginning of hunting season. Here at Tech Wholesale, we have the two-way radios you need to make sure that you stay safe and stay in touch with your hunting party. Before you get out there in the field, there are a few things you need to consider.

What to look for in a good hunting two-way radio:

  • If you’re hunting in the thick woods or brush, you need to take radio range into consideration. When you’re out there, obstructions can weaken the signal and cause dead spots with less powerful two-way radios.
  • When you’re hunting, the last thing you need is a radio transmission scaring away your prey. Many hunting two-way radios work perfectly with accessories like headsets—so only YOU hear the transmission.
  • There aren’t batter outlets available in the field. Look for two-way radio models with a very long battery life to make sure that you don’t lose power.

Stay safe out there, hunters! A two-way radio can help keep you on the right track.
