By: Dennis Jaylon

The popularity and the increasing demand for two way radios has not only increased their visibility in the market, but has also encouraged engineers to add features that make it more user friendly. Today, these radios are available in smart and light weigh models and are equipped with a quite a number of additional features. The buyer has the advantage to pick up transmitters that have the best combination of features that are most suited to his requirements.

The unique features that are available in two way radios are:

  1. Call Alerts: This feature allows user to choose their incoming call alert from a variety of tones and styles that are incorporated in the radio instrument itself. The tones may include a number of ringing melodies, and the user can choose from ringing styles like vibrating alert, vibrating and ringing, and only ringing, among many others.

  2. Privacy Codes: This is an extremely unique feature of two way radios that enables users to use the option of privacy codes. Using this feature, the user can block out other unwanted communicators who have tuned in to the same channel and frequency as him. He can choose who he wants to talk to and have a quiet and peaceful conversation, by barring others who have tuned into the same channel. This feature allows the user to have a one to one conversation whenever he wants.

  3. Eavesdrop Reducer: This feature is available in high priced two way radios. It scrambles transmission by using the voice inversion technology. It is basically used for people who use FRS (Family Radio Service) radios and are tuned into the same channel and frequency. This system prevents other people, using FRS, from eavesdropping on your conversations when you are speaking to your partners. Together with privacy codes, the eavesdrop reducer provides complete privacy to conversations on two way radios.


Two way radios have many more exciting and innovative features that have not only made them more user friendly, but has also enhanced the quality of conversations that people can have using this device.
