Two-way radio is the fastest and most efficient method of one-to-many communication for an event or workplace. Two-way radio is generally a simplex method of communication where only one user can talk at any time, and other units on the same channel within range will all receive the message of the transmitting user.
Our rental solutions will almost always operate in the commercial UHF band which is 450 – 520MHz. UHF is considered ‘line-of-sight’ meaning two users will be able to communicate provided there is a clear path between them. UHF can work through moderate obstacles such as buildings, vehicles and trees however it has its limitations – very dense obstacles or terrain such as concrete, mountains, cliff faces or thick tree lines can quickly attenuate a signal and render simplex (radio-to-radio) communication unfeasible. A clear path between all users is often impossible across a large area and a repeater or networked system may be required to achieve full coverage. See our Wide Area coverage options for more information.
