Why You Need Two Way Radios.
Before the world came to know about smartphones, people relied on two-way radios. However, just because there are cell phones now doesn’t mean they have been rendered obsolete. In many job sites, you will find people using mobile phones because of convenience and also multi-functionality. However, the best option is still the two-way radios. You will not have cell service and the landlines won’t be useful when an emergency has occurred. Given that two-way radios do not need the cell service towers to operate, communication will not be interrupted even during that time. Also, communication during emergencies will reach more people if you can relay the message to a group. Two-way radios messages will be heard by anyone who is around. This will not be the case for those who are using cell phones because it requires you to dial a specific number depending on who you want to contact. If the information is passed to a specific person who should let the rest know, there might be inconveniences when he or she forgets and at times the message has been changed in the process of passing it along.
Two-way radios are long lasting and they are also lightweight. Whether you are taking them to the job site or using them in everyday life, there is no need for you to buy a case for them because even if you drop them by mistake there is no chance that they will crack. In the manufacture of the radios, the specifications are military standard not to forget IP specifications and that is why they can survive even in the harshest circumstances. Because most job sites do not have charging ports where the two-way radios can be charged, their batteries can last for long hours with someone extending up to 24 hours. With a fully charged radio, you can be in the field all day long and you will be able to communicate with everyone who has a radio as well.
These radios are not as expensive as the mobile phones. Good mobile phones are expensive and they require investment in terms of thousands of dollars and this will be quite a cost if each department in your company requires such. With two way radios, you will not be paying for calling minutes, service contracts of even monthly fees. In addition, there is no need to buy one radio for every member of your team because one is enough for the entire department. These radios are meant to offer clarity in message no matter the prevailing conditions or the environment. View here for more information concerning these radios from Brentwood Communications.
