Importance of Two Way Radios.
Two-way radios were in use long before the smartphones were introduced. Additionally, you can still use them even in this cell phone era. In job site, mobile phones are often used in communication because they are multi-functional and even convenient. 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. In cases where you tell a particular person the message you want the rest of the group to get, the individual might forget to communicate and in some cases, the information is distorted as it is passed down the line which means the original message will be lost.
The two-way radios are very durable and they do not weight a lot. In the event that they have to be taken to rough environments, you can comfortably use them unlike mobile phones which require you to buy a casing not to mention the fact that they do not get damaged because of falls. 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.This makes it ideal to take them with you the entire day and not worry about the battery dying on you.
These radios are not as expensive as the mobile phones. There are some mobile phones which cost even one thousand dollars and above and those will drain the firm’s budget if you ought to get them. With two way radios, you will not be paying for calling minutes, service contracts of even monthly fees. Also, each worker does not need a separate radio and you can have them share to cut the costs.
