How-To-Radio: Buying Your First Radio

Two way radios are an integral part of an efficient communication system, but there are so many brands, models and varieties that it can be hard to figure out where to start.

In order to ensure you are getting the right radio solution for your workplace, it's essential to evaluate your communication needs. If you have a large team working inside a single complex, your needs will be different from a workplace where there are only a few employees, but they are spread out across a large distance.

For example, if you work on a farm with a few employees, you are going to have specific needs that apply to you. You may want mobile radios that can be installed into a quad bike for when people are out on the farm, or a smaller portable radio that can clip on to a belt. If the terrain is uneven or there is a large amount of foliage you may also need a repeater to boost the signal, meaning you are able to communicate whenever and wherever you need to. There are also some other features to consider if you are on a farm, such as man down that will ensure your workers are as safe as possible.

On the other hand if you work in a manufacturing plant or large complex, your needs will be different. You may want to use headsets, as these will allow you to clearly communicate in high-noise environments easily, as some can be noise isolating and even work as PPE. You will also want to be sure whether you need a UHF or VHF set-up, which will largely depend on the size of your worksite.

Regardless of what industry you are working in or the size of your business, the best thing you can do if you are wanting to evaluate the communication needs of your workplace is to contact the experienced team here at Mobicomm. They will be able to guide you through the process, and ensure you are getting the right equipment for the right job.
