The Benefits Of Purchasing Portable Two Way Radios

By Kayla Acevedo

Portable two way radios have been a lifesaver for many people when they have been stranded and in need of help. They have also been used by Law Enforcement Personnel, firefighters, and others engaged in searching for lost people and many others for whom it was important to keep in contact with others. It is very simple to operate, is light weight and easy to carry. This makes it ideal for people who must walk a long way when engaged in these activities.

Many older people will remember when they had a walkie-talkie in their youth. This is still being used by people who are working in rough areas where other types of communication are not available. It is a fast and easy method of getting messages back and forth quickly.

With the use of the portable two way radio by so many in Law Enforcement, it is interesting to know that that is exactly what it was originally developed for. The original model was so huge it took up the entire back of a car which makes one wonder where the prisoners sat. This occurred in Australia for use by the Victoria Police and was developed by a member of the force.

There are many varieties of this radio on the market today. Some are plain, others have such things as digital displays and tuning, clocks and other additions. The size varies according to intended use and price paid.

The radio one purchases may have an AC adaptor or a rechargeable battery. The range the signal carries will vary according to the type of unit. The range for the original models was a quarter mile, while some of the newer ones are claiming 36 miles.

In purchasing one of these radios, one will find a wide variety of prices as well as special features. They are excellent for people engaged in sports such as skiing, para-gliding and other activities where one is apt to be separated from friends. This is especially true if one finds themselves in a dangerous situation.

Portable two way radios have a range of possibilities and are being used in a number of different places where other means of communication is not available. Some people use this as a means of keeping in touch with family members or friends when on an outing such as a camping trip. This makes it very easy to make plans without having to meet in person.
