The 2826 Rookie’s Guide to two way radios: Part 6.

Where can two way radio equipment be used? 

Each setting, requirement and business situation is slightly different but there is always a solution and set up to suit all requirements.  Ensuring you work with a qualified and experienced expert is the best way to guarantee that you are using the right system and product for your business and that you’ll get the most out of it.

In general terms, radio equipment can be used:

  • Across wide areas
  • Between different towns and cities
  • For perimeter patrolling
  • Inside buildings
  • Out on site in vehicles
  • Out on site on foot

A quick ‘rule of thumb’ is that VHF travels furthest in outdoor environments whereas UHF is better for local onsite use and inside buildings.
