The Benefits of Using a Walkie Talkie Headset
The great thing about two way radios is that they allow for instant communication with a large group of people. This can be be made even more effective by thy fact that radio can be used in conjunction with walkie talkie headsets making for instantaneous hands free communication. This can essential for emergency communications, battlefield coordination, or a quick potty break on a road trip.
Here are some additional reasons to use a two way radio instead of a cell phone:
No monthly charges. Walkie talkies do not depend on a cellular network to communicate. They use their own transmitting frequency and depend on nothing more than range. Say good buy to roaming fees and bad cell areas.
Instant communication. If you like relying on someone answering the phone every time you call, go ahead but I find it annoying to have to dial and wait for an answer when I need to talk now. Chalk it up to being part of the wired generation. I don’t want to have to wait.
Good for the kids. On camping trips or around the neighborhood I feel much more comfortable giving my kids a two way radio than a cell phone. If they break a two way radio it is can be much more easily replaced and they are normally more durable. I also have the ability to communicate with more than one kid at a time. If I need to say come in for dinner it only takes one quick call not multiple cell phone calls.
For some situations intrinsically safe devices are required. This means that the device is not capable of producing a spark. Normally in hazardous areas. There are more options when it comes to two way radios than cell phones. Noise canceling walkie talkie headsets. There are many hand held radio headsets that are purpose built for situations like high noise areas. Walkie talkies are simply the standard of communication for industry and safety.
