Walkie talkies are one of the best ways to communicate privately over short distances. They do not require the same set-up that cellular communication do, can operate without a cell tower nearby. They are also able to operate outside of the condition of the local power grid, making them excellent for those looking for emergency communications. They are an excellent choice for someone looking to set up a communication hub without relying on an outside party. and Motorola is one of the biggest names in telecommunications that also offers a variety of solutions.
Starting originally as Galvin Manufacturing Corporation in 1928 by two brothers, Motorola sold battery eliminators (batteries that allowed the radio to operate from household electricity). Due to then-current advances in radios, the need for battery eliminators was soon eliminated and so the brothers decided to move on as well. They decided on the next big thing in electronics, which happened to be car radios, and changed the name to fit, with "Motor" in the name coming "motor cars". The company became one of the defining names in telecommunications, and quickly became one of the companies to deal with when it came to virtually any form of radio or phone electronics. They split in 2009 into two companies: One stayed in telecommunications and the other stayed in cellular business.
Motorola 2 way radios, better known as "walkie talkies", come in a wide variety of different options, ranging from simple communication devices to a wide variety of more advanced options for any range of options. Although it would be too exhaustive to go into the full catalogue here, it includes options such as radios that can be operated underwater, those with GPS options, and even those that can utilize satellite relays for communication almost anywhere. Although most walkie-talkies operate on their own, there is a base station available for some models that can be used in tandem with the hand-held radios to both boost the system's range as well as act as a home station.
The best Motorola walkie talkie obviously depends on its use, potential or otherwise. The base station is useful for those situations where it works to have two mobile devices in the field and a dispatcher who can coordinate their efforts. Having a GPS option works for those that work in an area where people easily get lost, such as a forest or swampland. A walkie talkie with a satellite option is great for those going into an area where indirect access may be best, such hilly areas or areas with a lot of cliffs where direct line of communication may not be the easiest. In some cases the battery life may actually be the most important option, such as when the radios are to be used for emergency situations only. If you see a lot of water in the life of the radios, such as onboard a ship or when for those who do a lot of underwater work, then waterproof radios may be the best option.
In short, before purchasing a set of Motorola 2 way radios it helps to have a specific use in mind in order to make the most use of the walkie talkies. Plan ahead and they will make for an incredible purchase.
