I do not know if you came here because you read it on social media, twitter, facebook, google +, stumble upon or anywhere else. But thank you for coming and I trust you take pleasure in reading this as much as I did.
During WWII the warfighter needed special communications gear to combat the Axis powers. One of the ways they did this was through the use of walkie talkies. These little hand-held raidos were created by Motrola to support the WWII war effort. Motorola had a full complement of engineers working on this project to ensure the soldiers had what they needed. A result of all their hard work was the small handheld Walkie Talkie. Today these small handheld communications devices are used to support emergency personnel and civil defense folks all around the world.
While walkie-talkies work exceptionally well to provide communication for the non-military user one must remember that frequencies are limited and the use of these frequencies is governed differently around the world. For those of us that live in the United States the FCC has set aside 14 separate frequencies (UHF) that can be used. Another nice thing about purchasing small handheld walkie-talkies is that you don’t have to purchase any additional airtime… just open the package and go.
Many parents see cell phones as providing a huge advantage for keeping in touch with their young children. While cell phones can in fact help to communicate with your young children, they also can introduce a certain level of risk to the safety of your child. Regrettably, many young cell phone users do not have the maturity required to understand the potential security risks that exist with their phone.
Phones with links to the Internet can also pose a serious problem, where the child can enter chatrooms, and connect to anyone in the world, including deranged people looking for innocent children to violate. Cell phones can be open portals right into your child’s life, complete with camera functions. A better alternative is obvious: walkie talkies for kids – portable two way radios, long range two way radios, with or without headsets. There are so many of these on the market, very reasonably priced, that eliminate all of the worries that come with cell phone use.
Many major retailers have these types of communications devices. If you are interested in picking some up you certainly could find them at Wal-Mart, Target, or Best Buy. Makes and models of walkie-talkies that are available for your child are numerous. You can easily find a walkie-talkie headset or walkie talkie watch to provide your child with the ability to communicate with you when ever they need to.
