Two Way Radios : Cost-effective Means of Staying Connected

By: Dennis Jaylon

Suppose that you are in a mall with your whole family: your wife and two children. Every one of you has his/her own shopping list. You have some new books to buy, your wife is to explore the crockery items, the son is interested in the latest video games and the daughter is looking for a flashy iPod. So, there is strong likelihood that you will be scattered as soon as you enter the mall.

Under such circumstances how can you ensure that you all stay connected to each other! Certainly the mobile phone will be the first choice. But with pay-per minute charges, can this device provide you a cost-effective means of communication! Obviously not; so you need a cheaper choice. And two way radios can provide you with this. The device that was traditionally used by police has now got its access to the civilians.

Two way radios are transceiver and unlike a broadcast receiver which only receives content one way, this one can both transmit and receive the content. To activate the transmitter, a push-to-talk button remains present in the device. This hand-held portable two-way radio is also often called walkie-talkies or handie-talkies. These radios are available in mobile and stationary base configurations. In some cases, they come with push-to-talk button that make them easy for kids to use.

Motorola has a good range of two-way radios that are fun and easy to use. Their push-to-talk button provides instant connection to a group. They have ten programmable call alert tones; hence callers are easily recognised. Also known as 'dispatch radio', two-way radios have traditionally been used by police, especially by fire, taxi and other mobile fleets. With added functionalities, these monitors are getting popular day by day. The internet provides an easily accessible market to buy these radios.
