  • What is vhf-uhf? which one to use  for indoor-outdoor communications?

For outdoor use VHF radios are best as their signals travel farther when there are no obstructions, particularly in fairly open areas. Their signals tend to travel farther over land. UHF can perform better for indoor radio operations. as their signals better penetrate steel and concrete.

  • Do radios communicate each other regardless of brands, models?

Yes, any  radios brand can communicate with other,  as long  as they are in the same frequency band and tones.if you have existing  radio add-on units must match the same frequency and program codes/tones.with the dealer or manufacturer on specific models.

  • What is repeater? does it helps to extend radio talk-range?

Repeaters can extend the range of communication. Repeaters are located in a high location for better range. A repeater basically ‘boosts’ the signal (RX) and sends (TX) it out again. Repeaters  high wattage between 25 and 100 watts, will travel much farther than the original signal from the radio which is 3-5 watts. 

  • Do I need longer antenna?

A Longer antennas provide better signal reception; a short (or stubby) antenna cuts your range by roughly 30%. Stubby or short antenna commonly used for close communication in groups or escort. The short antenna sometimes makes the radio easier to carry, and works well in locations where distance is not an issue.

  • How many frequency channels do I need for any industry company use?

The  channels and frequency requirements may vary on a situation basis, industry on which groups of employees need to communicate with each other. Grouping each department is one of the regular basis. Divide these employees per department and function  will determined who will be assigned a specific channel. 

  • Why is wattage important in radio talk-range?

Wattage is one key factor that determines the strength of your radio signal. Typical radio with 5 watts output power can reach 3-5km, this may vary from obstruction to Line of sight (LOS). Therefore, the more wattage a radio has, generally the longer distance it’s signal can travel and the clearer the transmission will be. The larger the job-site, the more watts you should purchase. We recommend using hi-wattage radio 7-8 watts and above.
