Having been supplying two way radios to both the leisure and business sector for nigh on 20 years we’ve seen so many new uses for them as the market has gone from strength to strength.

In Business

Business users are no longer restricted to taxi firms and the emergency services. More and more companies are realising the value of being able to keep in touch with employees without relying on mobile phone coverage or their proximity to a land line.

For example, a group calling feature can be useful to businesses such as shops and garden centres. Cleaning staff or assistants can be paged as part of a group and directed to where their services are required – regardless of where on site they are currently. Managers can also be summoned discretely to deal with issues without paging the entire complex.

Construction companies make use of hands free operation as it allows workers to communicate about a project when they are out of earshot or their voices would be drowned out by the sound of machinery.

Leisure Use

It’s not just businesses that benefit from high quality two way communication. Many leisure activities take you away from the stresses and strains of modern life and that also means out of range of mobile telephone communications.

A family group, camping in the hills, could decide to go for a walk. The group get separated but there’s no need for panic. Using walkie talkies they can keep each other updated on their progress meaning that both groups arrive back at base at the same time.

Another use leisure users might find is to give themselves an edge in a game of paintball where the whole team can keep each other updated on sightings of the opposition without alerting their opponents to their location.

Digital Radios

Analogue is tried and tested but the newest type of two way radio is digital. Digital walkie talkies can work in analogue mode allowing them to co-exist with your current setup but also offer feature such as extended battery life, noise cancelling for use in windy conditions, longer ranges, even text messaging and apps!

A useful feature some digital radios have is GPS and Man Down alerts which offers an intrinsically safe walkie talkie solution for lone workers in extremely remote areas.
