Developed during World War 2 for use in the military, walki talkies are now commonly used by millions of people in work and in homes all over the planet.
Originally quite large and cumbersome, just like so many other electrical devices, they have shrunk in size considerably over the years. In general, a walkie talkie will have a mouthpiece to talk in and a speaker to listen from they also can come with a compact earphone microphone for discreet conversations if need be.

Licensed and Unlicensed Walkie Talkies
Walkie talkies come in two basic types. One type is referred to as licensed, while the other type is referred to as unlicensed. A “licensed” set of walkie talkies will transmit conversations over a radio frequency that has been isolated and designated specifically for that particular set of walkie talkies.
This type of walkie talkie would be the type that you would see a pit crew at a car race communicating with their driver with.

Right Off an Electronics Store Shelf
Unlicensed Walkie Talkies would be the type of walkie talkie that you can buy off the shelf at any electronics store. While there is an extremely small chance of it, you can run into situations with unlicensed walkie talkies where unrelated walkie talkie users using completely different walkie talkies can over ride each other and cause a confusing situation.
This is precisely the reason why licensed walkie talkies are available for professionals who can’t afford the risk of these types of situations.

Always a Place for Walkie Talkies
The advent of the mobile phone took the place of the walkie talkie for a good many people over the years that the cell phone has been in use. However; there will always be situations and places where a set of walkie talkies can’t be replaced. For instance, hunters and outdoors men use them to communicate with each other in desolate areas where cell phone reception is unavailable.

Also, walkie talkies don’t have a time delay while a call goes through, which is a benefit in commercial situations.

Warrant Man Confesses To Phony Emergency 2 Way Radio Calls

With very little information on the internet about 2 way radio for hunting’s, it is very rare when we get a chance to re post, with permission, an article from this industry.

As police were closing in, the man charged with interfering with emergency radio transmissions in Litchfield County tried to get rid of the two Way Radio he is accused of using by throwing it into a trash container, according to court documents released Monday.

Several people had contacted police to say they suspected Adam Perrelli, 35, of Great Barrington, Mass., was behind a series of phony radio calls on frequencies used by Litchfield County fire departments and ambulance crews.

State police had distributed the recordings to the media with the hope that someone would recognize the voice.

Police said they received several calls that mentioned Perrelli, who has a criminal record, including sexual assault and burglary. Tipsters told police that Perrelli had two-way radios.

One witness told state police about Perrelli’s attempt to get rid of the two-way radio, telling them on March 4 that she saw Perrelli throw a backpack into a trash container at a VFW post in Great Barrington on Feb. 28.

When detectives checked the trash container that same day, it was empty. They then contacted the owner of the carting company that emptied the container and he told them he still had the load from the VFW trash bin in his truck.

On March 6, detectives followed the refuse truck to a transfer station in Canaan, N.Y., where the load was dumped. They searched the refuse and eventually found a backpack containing a Baofeng two-way radio.

That same day, Perrelli in an interview with detectives admitted making several of the fake radio transmissions that interfered with fire and ambulance dispatching in Litchfield County in December and January. He claimed to be drunk when he made some of the calls, police said.

Several people told police that Perrelli had boasted about making the transmissions. They said they contacted police after learning about the allegations.

The warrant described Perrelli as someone who wanted desperately to be a firefighter, but who failed to gain certifcation in Connecticut and was rejected from joining the Great Barrington fire department.

Perrelli, who used to live in Branford, was arrested Friday on charges of reporting a false incident, reckless endangerment, computer crimes, interfering with an officer and tampering with physical evidence, state police said. He was arraigned Monday in Superior Court in Litchfield and ordered held on $125,000 bail.

5 Reasons 2 Way Radios Have A Leg Up on Mobile Phones

two way radio quizSo i found this article on the net and i was told that just posting it as the whole piece isn’t an excellent thing, I got permission from the original writer and read up how to curate posts, so this is it…….i thought this was interesting because it highlights some of the highs and lows that I encountered when i was working within the industry.
As an authorized reseller of Motorola business two-way radios, Forestry Suppliers, Inc. often receives questions about the benefits of using two-way radios rather than mobile phones. While mobile phones have replaced two-way radios in some markets, significant benefits remain for users of two-way radio in markets like engineering, construction, forestry, golf courses, landscape management, and education.
For industries that want to compare Motorola business Icom two way radios to mobile phones for their communication needs, here are five reasons why two-way radios may be the better choice.
1. Continued Service During Emergencies. It’s National Safety Month, and two-way radios can be an important safety tool for your organization year-round. In the face of an emergency or disaster, two-way radios continue to function even when mobile and land lines can fail. Plus, you can contact every team member instantly without dialing separate phone numbers.
2. Durability. Two-way radios are designed to be lightweight but extremely durable. There’s no need to purchase an additional protective case. In fact, most models are built to military and IP specs. When you drop Walkie talkies, the polycarbonate housing does not crack or break, which is important whether you are in an office or in the field. Plus, battery life for industrial two-way radios spans from 12-26 hours, depending on the model.
3. Cost-Effective. With two-way radio communication, businesses can use resources efficiently and productively. Two-way radios do not require monthly fees, service contracts, or calling minutes. Businesses using two-way radios can also save time, paperwork, and money by avoiding employee cell phone reimbursements. Finally, in most industries, teams and work shifts cut costs by sharing radios, rather than one radio or phone per employee.
4. Clear Communication. Two way Radios are designed for clear audio communication in harsh conditions, with features such as wind-noise reduction and high durability that meet military standards for resistance to vibration, extreme temperatures and moisture.
5. Easy to Use. With touch-button talk communication, two-way radios are intuitive to use and reduce time needed for training. Models within the RM and RDX series of business radios also feature cloning capabilities that let you copy one radio’s settings to additional radios quickly and easily.

walkie talkie bandCan not get over how low-priced the 2 way radio motorcycle helmet is now, an incredible deal for any top-end product!

Two-way radios are widely in use on professional construction projects to help site management coordinate personnel and services in order to deliver projects safely, on-time and within budget.

However construction sites pose many challenges to two-way radio communications, including signal coverage, ground to crane communications and linking numerous trades, subcontractors and security staff in user groups to each other and central management within a network. There is also the requirement for reliable, clear and instant communication in extremely noisy, dusty environments, within buildings and in open space whatever the weather, and of course for communications devices to be easy to use, durable and rugged.

Kenwood has been supplying Walkie Talkie systems to the construction industry for many years with equipment proven in use around the world.

Since the launch of Kenwoods NEXEDGE peer to peer and trunked digital two-way radios and walkie talkie solutions, an increasing number of customers in the construction industry have upgraded to the improved clarity, increased coverage, additional flexibility and enhanced security of NEXEDGE digital two way radio technology.

Other benefits of NEXEDGE include Kenwoods Analogue/Digital Mixed Mode which, unlike some other brands, allows NEXEDGE radios to communicate automatically (without manually switching the operating mode) with existing analogue radios whatever the make; so that you can replace your analogue radios over time in a straightforward and cost effective way.

As you would expect, all Kenwood professional series hand portable walkie talkies conform to MIL-STD-810 C/D/E/F/G for ruggedness and durability and are IP54/55 Water & Dust Intrusion rated, making them ideal in a dusty, muddy construction environment.

jenis communication deviceWhen we found this informative article we were so pleased, having sought for over a year for this, finding it on this site was an thrilling day for me.

The model of radio has been working and profitable for years. The only difference between WABC radio and YourDomain.com is they have an audience (akin to web traffic) and they are pros at producing audience attracting audio content that they broadcast 24 hours a day to a limited area geographically. With your dot com, you can broadcast audience-attracting audio content just good as theirs, broadcast it on demand to anywhere in the world, and make profits with niches where they can’t.

Example: Fly fishing radio, Pottery artists radio, Swing trading 2 Way Radio, Hair coloring tips radio, thousands of other possible niches would fail horribly in traditional radio broadcast models, but niches thrive on the internet, and so does niche internet radio. Once the audience is built, if yours is not already, all the profitable techniques of traditional radio apply. It would not be spam in an internet radio program to advertise and direct listeners to online offers. You could run all the audio ads you want. But be careful, people are 1 click away from not listening. Yet, we are conditioned to hear, “This program is brought to you by XYZ advertiser” and 8 minutes of every hour, radio plays commercials, and you could do the same on Internet radio programming.

Internet radio is just broadcast quality content being streamed over the internet. That is it, nothing more. There are 2 variations, and both are considered internet radio. One version is live content being streamed in real time based on a time schedule, but in reality that is not really necessary or cost effective for that matter. What I believe to be the next wave of useful marketing tactics using audio on the web, is building a niche internet radio station which will have tremendous marketing and audience building potential. It will be in the broadcaster’s best interest to produce killer-archived content and post that regularly to stream on demand for their listeners.

This is so easy and cost effective to do, and does not require the live production techniques of traditional radio, nor the high costs and server infrastructure of live feed internet audio streaming. Be aware live streaming can be done through web companies such as website or website and many other others that have the data centers to multicast audio streams in real time. Internet radio needs only to be great audio content available upon demand online, and I see as an incredible opportunity for marketers of niche products and services to create to build audience or traffic to their online offerings.

Walkie Talkie History & Info

0

So i discovered this article on the web and i heard that just posting it as the whole piece isn’t a good thing, I got permission from the original writer and read up how to curate posts, so this is it…….i thought this was fascinating because it highlights some of the highs and lows that I encountered when i was working within the business.

The fist radio audio transmitter and receiver that was coined with the name Walkie Talkie was created by Motorola. The group involved created the Motorola SCR-300 using frequency modulation. This first revision was actually backpack mounted.

Not long afterward, during World War 2, Motorola produced what was called a Handie Talkie which rather confusingly is what we would now recognize as a Walkie Talkie. It had massively reduced performance, but was the first completely self contained handheld device.

There are 2-way long range walkie talkie radios that will provide long distance rage communication. Many will go as far as 12 miles. The most commonly used walkie talkie devices are the ones that are hand held and contain a button on the side that you push to speak. They are great and come in very handy for many things. They are often used while camping, hiking, shopping, home projects, and even in businesses like construction.

These walkie talkie devices provide a clear, easily accessible way to talk to someone who is not close enough to speak to face to face. Many of the two-way radios have clips and other accessories like 2-way radio headsets so that the radio can clip to your pant and allow for easy and simple access to the radio.

The transmission range that the companies typically promote is up to 20 miles although according to the terrain you would be lucky to actually reach a 2 mile limit. Being trained previously in electronics and radio in particular I find walkie talkies to be only as effective as a line of sight signal. If you encounter a hill or mountain you can just about be assured that you will not be able to communicate at all.
