I do not know how you came here as you read it on social media, twitter, facebook, google +, stumble upon or anywhere else. But thank you for visiting and I hope you like reading this as much as I did.
With cell phones and other advanced technology, few consider a walkie talkie set as an exciting way to communicate. When you are out of cell phone range and need to stay connected to family members or others in your party, a two way radio is a very useful tool.
In situations where there are large crowds, trying to keep track of everyone in your party can be a real challenge. Shopping in large crowds can be a nightmare, but with one press of a button, you are instantly in communication with your children, spouse or friends. Many large buildings or shopping malls have a poor cell signal which makes using a cell phone for this purpose less than adequate. If you use a walkie talkie set, you aren’t wasting valuable minutes checking on someone’s location.
If you’ve ever been at a large venue with a large number of people, you know that it’s frustrating when you are separated from a member of your party. Having to take the time to look for them is not what you had in mind. Instead of enjoying the day, you’re on a manhunt trying to figure out where that person might have gone. Although cell phones could be used in this scenario, not everyone can use one because of expense and signal issues. Walkie talkie sets are the perfect solution to this dilemma. Relatively inexpensive, they provide a way of instant communication without having to know someone’s cell number.
Two-way communication has lost favor in recent years due to the introduction of smart phones and other shiny objects appealing to consumers. Although these devices are fun to use, they are not always convenient either by limited calling plans or signal issues. For situations where you simply need to be in contact with someone, walkie talkie sets really are a preferable choice. Not only are there no ongoing charges, but communication is instant with the push of a button.
You only have to watch the news to hear how someone disappeared from the local shopping mall. Although a 2 Way Radio isn’t going to necessarily prevent this, you will know if there’s a problem much sooner than if there was no communication at all. If someone in your party were to be suddenly grabbed, one click of the button opens up the walkie talkie so that the other person could hear what was going on. With a cell phone, they wouldn’t have time to dial a number. This instant communication gives walkie talkie sets the advantage over a cell phone in these situations.
In today’s age of fancy technology, you might not have thought of such a form of communication as anything useful. But if you can picture the convenience you and your family would have at the county fair, amusement park or large shopping mall, you can see that even today, they are a very useful form of communication.
Walkie talkie sets vary in price based on the range. Some will only communicate up to several feet, while others can communicate up to a few miles. For use away from home, walkie talkie sets that have broader range are obviously preferable.
