Features in Two Way Radios for Outdoor Users

By: Dennis Jaylon

Two way radios are now being manufactured in amazing models having numerous features. Earlier these radios were just crude models that were used for free communication within a particular range. One got to see these radios only in the hands of army men, police men or marketing personnels i.e., mostly in the hands of people constantly on the move. But owing to the introduction of exciting features and smart models, these radios are now used for communication among family members as well.

Despite being used by families as well, two way radios are still more popular for outdoor usage. The higher the price, the more the features. One of the exciting features in high end models that is useful for outdoor users is a key that locks your channel so that it does not change when a person moves around. Other features include a digital camera, an AM/FM radio tuner, digital compasses, alarms, thermometers and barometers and even stop watches.

Another exciting and innovative feature available in two way radios is the Auto Squelch that keeps the radio silent until a signal is received. It also has a last channel recall button that is similar to the redial button on a normal phone. Other useful features include an auto channel scan that scans all channels for signal, along with a backlit LCD that enables the user to see the display even in the dark. There is also a provision to attach more speakers and microphones.

For outdoor users, Two way radios now come with various accessories that not only enhance its look and makes it user friendly, but some also prevent wear and tear of the radio when it is exposed to harsh conditions. These include waterproof cases, charging units, headsets and shoulder and belt holsters.

All these features and accessories make two way radios the best communication gadgets for outdoor usage.
