Digital Radio Features
Increasingly, producers of walkie talkie radios are moving towards digital transmissions, as opposed to the more traditional analogue types. This is a long overdue move, and a welcome one for most people who understand the complexities of two-way communication devices in today's market. To put it simply, digital communication is a more modern and technologically advanced system, while analogue is the more old-fashioned and traditional of the two.
There are many advantages to using digital transmission over analogue, though it is also true to say that analogue walkie talkies will no doubt be around for many years to come, working just fine and serving its owners well. Digital radio offers a much clearer voice transmission, for a start. It also offers a much larger area coverage, working more efficiently over long distances.
With analogue walkie talkie radios only one person can talk at a time. That's why a radio protocol was established many years ago where words like "over" are used, meaning "over to you," as an indication that one person has stopped talking and the other person can now begin. With digital two-way communication simultaneous conversations are possible, just like real world face to face communication.
Digital radio also offers more features, such as GPS and text messaging. However, if costs are an important factor, then analogue is the least costly choice. Analogue is also suitable for most situations, but it can struggle a bit in noisy conditions, which is one of digital radio's strengths; it can cut down on background noise to allow much clearer conversations to take place.
