Again a new piece i found interesting on the subject matter of two way radio operation’s, what would you need to do if i didn’t post this ehh? you would have to find the initial content, the chances you found it would be slim, so deem yourself fortunate that i have shared this excellent short article with you.
There will come a time when you must find a way to keep in touch with a group of people that are spread out in various directions. These types of radios can be used for all different things and can genuinely help when you need to know where an individual is.
Yearly, all the men in our family go on a fishing trip to Lake Champlain. Since we normally have about 8 to 10 boats on the water so everyone can fish, it is difficult to keep track of everyone as Lake Champlain is huge. Getting everyone to come in for lunch or dinner was just about impossible because of the size of the lake and since people didn’t like brining their cellular phones in the boats, (that’s another story). We would actually row around the lake, usually for hours, trying to find everyone and tell them it is time to eat.
Then a few years ago, I bought two sets of these motorola cp040 walkie talkies and put them in 4 boats. And it was one of the greatest things I ever did. These radios have a range of 23 miles and no individual was ever out of touch with any of the boats. As a result, after trying them out, the succeeding year I made certain we had a radio for each boat. This was a really smart thing as the next year my uncle’s boat broke down and wouldn’t start and the fact that he was about 3 miles away from the camp meant that we would have had a difficult time searching for him. My uncle notified us on the two-way radio and the first thing he did was thank me for purchasing the radios and then told me that his boat wouldn’t start. So we went out and towed him and his boat back to the house. Without the radios he would have had to use a single oar to get his sort of huge bass boat back to camp.
These two-way radios have always worked. In addition, you don’t have to worry about replacing the batteries in these radios all the time as they are rechargeable and come with a mounting station. One more fantastic feature of these Motorola radios is that they come equipped with a weather receiver so you can keep up with the weather when you’re outdoors.
And the uses of these radios are almost boundless. On a trip to Disney, my mom took the two-way radios with her since she was taking 6 of the grandkids on the trip with her. She thought that it would be a good idea to make certain all of the grandkids had a two-way radio attached to them just in case someone got lost. While no one got lost, that was actually a great idea she had.
SeveralA few of my family members even use them when they are going hunting in a large group to let others know when they are leaving. You have no idea what a time saver this can be unless you have ever been walking around the woods trying to locate someone you can’t find, merely because they got cold and decided to go home.
Virtually everyone in my family went out and got a headset for the Motorola radio they use so when we are hunting we can keep things quiet. With 121 privacy codes and 22 different channels that can be utilized, there’s no need to worry about other two-way radios interfering.
These two-way radios are really low-cost at $39.95 for a pair when bought through Amazon.com. And I am sure that you will be able to find more uses for the two-way radios than what we use them for.
