Rent Two-Way Radios for Vacation? Yes!
A few summers ago, we wrote a post about the benefits of renting two-way radios during vacations. We thought we would update that post this year since smartphones have become almost vital for every aspect of our lives. But when it comes to instant communication, two-way radios remain the number one resource.
Whether in the mountains, at the beach, or at an amusement park you should consider using “walkie talkies” to keep in contact with your group members. Two-way radios allow you to communicate with the whole group by just pressing one button. As long as your group members keep within a range of up to 5 miles line of sight, your communications will be covered.
New built-in features on digital two-way radios make them even more user friendly. The built-in caller ID allows you to know who is calling and will display a missed call. It allows you to call one person out of the group or send that one person or the whole group a canned message that they can read and respond to. The radios offer channel annunciation which prevents you from switching to the wrong channel. The display provides for the adjustment of background lighting allowing you to adjust the brightness of the display to your liking. All of these features, along with better range, longer battery life, and increased privacy from eaves droppers!
Don’t rely on smartphones for outdoors communication. Avoid having to wait to hear from your group members until they finish recording and updating their social media profile with the last scene or view. If they have a walkie talkie with them, they will be able to hear your message and reply just by pressing the button with one hand while continuing holding their smartphone and taking pictures with the other!
