|Walkie talkie radios were originally only used by the police, fire brigade and other official bodies. Today they are used by many businesses the world over where immediate communication is required.
The range of these radios depends on the system to which they are connected. If required, they can have a short range of only a few hundred yards. This makes them ideal for use in smaller sized areas such as department stores or building sites.
They can however have a wider range and stretch not only for a couple of miles but across cities or even the entire country. This makes them ideal for use by councils, couriers or haulage companies.
Walkie talkies have a number of key benefits over other forms of communications such as mobile phones:
1. It is instant. There are no delays. Instead of dialling a number and waiting, one simply has to push the button to talk.
2. One can talk to many users at the same time, this is ideal for controlling large fleets of personnel or vehicles at any one time.
3. Unlike mobile phone networks, a radio network will continue to work during cases of emergency, system congestion or extreme weather conditions.
4. It is not illegal to use a mobile radio whilst driving, unlike mobile phones.
Radiocoms have been pre-eminent in PMR for over 35 years. We employ a team of experts to advise on and design PMR systems to suit each individual requirement from very simple to extremely complex multi-site operations.
Digital Two-Way Radios
In May 2007, the launch of Motorola’s digital walkie talkie radios marked a new era in two way radio communication. Providing crystal clear audio, enhanced battery life, GPS and text message functionality alongside Motorola’s traditional rugged, compact design’s, the MotoTrbo range provides the best in digital and two way radio technology.

From restaurants to garden centres, for family use or lightweight business operations, licence free radios are everywhere. The reason for this was a Government initiative set up in November 1999 to relax control of some of the airwaves and allow a simplified licence free service known as PMR446.
Radios for use on this service are less expensive than conventional licenced equipment. The very cheapest are suitable for leisure use whilst the more expensive are ideal for professional business applications.
The uses are endless, whenever people need to talk to each other within a radius of about one mile. Walkie talkies can offer great benefits – they are simple, cheap and reliable – and, unlike mobile phones, once bought there are no further charges.
