6 Benefits of Using A Digital 2 way radio System

Without giving too much about this 2 way radio uk piece of writing, but I thought it remarkable and appropriate to what I’m now doing.

If your business has been using a traditional analogue Two Way Radio system in the past and you have been experiencing problems with noisy or poor communication signal, short battery life, out of range etc. now could be a good time to look at investing in the latest digital two way radio technology.
The DP3400 range from Motorola has already been highly tipped to be one of the best in the market, our product reviewer Karl Beach has been using this Walkie Talkie system for a few months now, below are his findings…
“This new digital technology provides new, unique benefits to increase workforce productivity and safety. The DP3400/3401 UHF Portable Radios, part of the MOTOTRBO range, are ideal for professional organizations that need a customizable, business-critical communication solution using licensed spectrum. Here are some of the key benefits I found when going digital:

Incredible Audio Quality

Audio Static and Noise Reduction

Longer Battery Life – up to 3hrs longer than my previous analogue system

Additional applications on the device including text messaging, GPS location tracking

The ability to operate in both analogue and digital modes

Reduced cost of ownership
I would fully recommend any business owner looking to invest in a 2 way radio system to consider the investment of this brand new product, it blows it’s analogue predecessors out of the water by a mile and is definitely a step in the right direction for radio communications and Two Way Radios.”

JVC, Kenwood U S Subsidiaries Merging

What is your favourite feature of the two way radio mounts? Personally, I much like the design job – Its cooler than an Inuit’s underpants!

personal communication devices repairJVC Kenwood will merge its two U.S. subsidiaries — JVC Americas and Kenwood USA — into a single subsidiary, effective Oct. 1.

JVC and Kenwood merged in 2008 to become JVC Kenwood, and the combined company has already merged its separate subsidiaries in other countries.

In a prepared statement, the company said JVC and Kenwood products will remain “two distinct brands in their respective user markets and sales channels.”

The merger “follows the successful integration of JVC and Kenwood operations throughout the world and will make both brands more competitive here in the all-important U.S. marketplace,” said Kenwood USA president/CEO Ryo Mizuhara.

JVC Americas president/CEO Junji Kobayashi said the merger “will allow us to operate more efficiently by sharing resources and standardizing processes.”

“This merger is part of the continued global integration strategy that JVC Kenwood Corporation first implemented in 2012,” the company added in a prepared statement. “This integration continues JVC Kenwood Corporation’s worldwide process that will result in a more efficient organization and further elevate the equity of the JVC and Kenwood brands.”

The merger affects the JVC Consumer A/V group in Wayne, N.J., JVC Mobile Entertainment of Long Beach, Calif., Kenwood USA’s aftermarket car electronics business in Long Beach, and Kenwood’s mobile 2 Way Radio group in Suwanee, Ga. The JVC and Kenwood car electronics groups have been operating out of the same building in Long Beach since mid-2011.

With the merger, all back-office systems will be consolidated, including IT, accounting, payroll, and other areas, a spokesman said, “to improve efficiencies, reduce expense, and provide the ability to report as a single entity.”

The JVC Consumer A/V Group and the JVC Mobile Entertainment group previously shared back-office functions.

Customer support for JVC and Kenwood products had already been consolidated “for quite some time,” the spokeman added.

The spokesman also said the JVC A/V Group intends to maintain an office in New Jersey but didn’t say it would remain in Wayne, N.J.

As for mangaement changes at JVC Mobile and Kenwood, the spokesman said, “no decisions have been made about any management changes.”

The merger announcement follows the departure of Karl Bearnarth, senior marketing VP for the JVC consumer A/V group, who left the company to pursue other opportunities, the company said. “It was his decision to leave to pursue other opportunities,” a spokesman said yesterday.

Meena Radio A new reason to go to school!

You can be safe in the wisdom that I bring the very best communication jamming device posts, a number of which are my very own a few of which are curated by me, if i choose to use somebody elses writing it’s because it’s appropriate to my readership, so feel confident that you are reading the very best from my industry.

PATNA: It’s a chilly winter day at Bhallui village, but a kindly sunshine bathes the campus of the Government Upgraded Middle School where, in front of the building, a group of kids in white caps are seated on the ground. In front of them sits a teacher, with a radio prominently displayed, its volume turned up. The kids are nodding their heads to a catchy tune playing on the radio. The ‘Meena ki Duniya’ programme is in session.

The Meena Radio session is in progress, starting as always, at 10:30am. The radio programme ends and the teacher facilitator, Abha Kumari, starts a discussion on the goodness of fresh vegetables, the topic of the 15-minute broadcast. Being the facilitator, she has already listened to the episode the previous day, by means of the flash drive inserted into the set. The children – sixth, seventh and eighth graders – interact with her and each other in an animated way.

Across 45 middle schools in the Rajapakar block of Vaishali, UNICEF is facilitating educational entertainment via podcast – successfully piloted in Uttar Pradesh in 2011, where the broadcast reached all schools through a tie-up with All India Radio.

‘Meena Radio’, as the ‘Meena ki Duniya’ Radio magazine series is affectionately called, is delivered to the schools within Rajapakar block by means of a radio set that can read audio files through a flash drive. The radio set and a flash drive loaded with the 160 episodes have been made available to the target schools. The schools turn on the radio at the designated time: 10:30am, so that a uniformity is maintained. Students from classes 6, 7 and 8 gather at one place to listen to the programme. The designated teacher-facilitator conducts the session. After the episode is over, the teacher initiates a discussion on the topics raised. The entire session takes about half an hour.

“The session is the highlight of the school day for these children,” says Abha. “Ever since the Meena radio programme started, attendance has improved. The children from the other classes also want to listen to the programme. So, once in a while during the lunch-break, we do repeat one of the episodes as a special treat. The kids sit down very attentively and listen.”

“Meena Radio tells us that boys and girls are equal. It also says that girls should be allowed to study. But I think it’s keeping clean and washing hands that are most important,” seventh grader Chandan Kumar reflects.

So, what do they hear on Meena Radio? “Stories! Songs! Jokes! Games! To keep your school clean! All girls should study at least till high school! Don’t do toilet in the open! Use the rest room,” shout the kids in turn.

Nidhi Kumari, a seventh grader says, “Bal Sansad and Meena Manch children have made a promise to parents to get toilets built at home.” In fact, in the past one month, three students proudly announced that their parents built toilets using the benefits of a government sanitation scheme. (Meena Manch is a girls’ activity group, and Bal Sansad is the student council in all government middle schools across Bihar.)

The use of soap for hand-washing has increased across all upper primary schools accessing the programme. Upendra Prasad, a teacher stated, “The demand came from the children. They asked for soap for hand-washing. And all the children use the soap!” Now the school administration makes sure that soap is purchased, an item on the school budget that would be ignored previously.

“Kids are a powerful pressure group,” says CRCC Amodanand. “Meena has become a role model, especially for girls, and the daily dose of Meena’s adventures gives them a high level of motivation. Positive changes have been happening just because the kids have got a better self-image, and the teachers are paying more attention to the children’s needs. In a sneaky way, Meena Radio also provides role models for the teachers as well. If Meena’s teacher is so understanding, why not is Munni’s teacher?”

The popularity of the Meena Radio episodes among school children has spread to their parents and neighbourhood as well.

Chandrakeshwar Kumar, a Vikas Mitra from Bakarpur panchayat demands that ‘Meena ki Duniya’ be made available for use as a communication tool during village meetings. The women folk were especially interested in listening to Meena Radio having heard about it from their school-going children. Having listened to an episode of Meena Ki Duniya, he appreciated its value as an icebreaker that could be used as a warm-up to community meetings.

‘Radio Rimjhim’: a community radio service set up in Gopalganj district, started ‘Meena ki Duniya’ broadcasts from December 16 last year in collaboration with Bihar Education Project Council, Information and Public Relations Department, and UNICEF. The broadcasts, however, were discontinued after a few days because of ‘technical reasons’.

Meena ki Duniya, with its simple and entertaining format advocating healthy habits such as eating green vegetables, nutritious food, hands-washing, etc, has the potential to reach out to radio listeners of all ages, and promoting maternal and child health, sanitation, and healthy habits.

Call for digital Walkie Talkies in phones

So i found this short article on the web and i was told that just posting it as the whole article is not a good thing, I got consent from the original author and read up the way to curate posts, so that is it…….i thought this was fascinating as it highlights some of the highs and lows that I encountered when i was working inside the industry.

The BBC’s new director of radio has called for mobile phones to come installed with digital radio receivers because the experience of streaming radio on smartphones is so poor.

Helen Boaden said radio faced a battle for the attention of young audiences.
“As you know if you’ve tried to listen, buffering, data charges and bill shock are all too common problems when listening on mobile phones,” she said.
“It’s just not good enough and the young will not be interested.”
Ms Boaden’s comments to the Radio Festival in Salford come as the European radio industry begins negotiations with handset manufacturers about installing digital radio chips as standard.

“Together with a coalition of radio broadcasters from around the world, we’re developing new standards to transform this experience and to encourage manufacturers to build digital Radios into their phones as part of the standard offer in the UK,” she said.

So far, built-in DAB receivers have been restricted to a few phone models.
Offered resignation Ms Boaden became head of BBC Radio in April after being moved from her post as head of BBC News in the wake of the Jimmy Savile scandal.

She told delegates she offered her resignation in the week the ITV documentary about Savile’s abuse aired. BBC Newsnight had earlier dropped its investigation into the presenter.
“I offered my resignation… not because we’d suppressed the journalism but because as the head of news I felt we’d made a bad mistake – we’d missed a story, and it was on my watch,” she said.
“They turned it down because they said, ‘If you leave now it will look like we did suppress the journalism’.”
She said she was allowed to take another senior post at the corporation because she had been a “good citizen over many years”.

Asked after her speech whether she had been “palmed off” on BBC Radio, she replied: “People have to judge me by how I do the job.
“It’s not nearly the easy job that people think because a we’re facing huge financial challenges in the BBC, we’re facing this digital revolution and I think we always have to shout hard in an organisation that’s obsessed with television.”
During her speech, Ms Boaden, a former BBC Radio 4 controller, said the radio industry “is being challenged like never before”.

“I’ve returned to find our radio industry in the midst of probably its greatest ever period of change, or certainly since the birth of commercial radio 40 years ago,” she said.
‘Twitter DJs’ Meanwhile, BBC Radio 1 has announced it is to hire its first “social media DJ” to talk to its audience on Facebook and Twitter.
The station’s controller Ben Cooper said he would hire one for Radio 1 and another for sister station 1Xtra.
He told the Radio Festival radio stations have to “win the battle on the mobile phone if you are to stay relevant with young people today”.

“We employ DJs to talk to our audience, communicate with our audience, relate to our audience,” he said.
“[They] set a conversation going with our audience on the airwaves, and they represent our brands on the airwaves.
“What I want to do now is employ two people, one for each station, to just look after the social media.”

TK-2302 3302 Compact VHF UHF FM Portable Radio

The world is full of very cool, well written content pieces. When you find one that catches your eye, you have got to repost it, well i do! so with authorization of the original author i have posted this to take pleasure in

For clear, reliable communications indoors or out, rain or shine, there’s no beating Kenwood’s compact TK-2302/3302 transceiver. Based on a proven design, but refined and updated with enhanced features, it has the power and performance to satisfy even the toughest job requirements, due in part to the MIL-STD 810 & IP54/55 weather-proofing. A model of ergonomic excellence on the outside, inside it’s packed with such features as priority scan, built-in VOX and a voice scrambler. No wonder the smart new TK-2302/3302 is attracting such attention.


The rounded ergonomic contours of the TK-2302/3302 naturally provide a superbly comfortable hold, while the non-slip elastomer channel knob with improved torque characteristics and enlarged PTT button ensure a positive tactile response during operation.


Built tough to take rough treatment in its stride, the TK-2302/3302 has passed the demanding IP54/55 dust and water intrusion tests, both with and without the KMC-45 optional speaker microphone. It also meets or exceeds 11 stringent MIL-STD 810 C/D/E/F environmental standards, including “driven rain”. So whatever the weather, the TK-2302/3302 is ever ready for action.


Clear audio means confident communications, but power output is not the only factor that determines how easy it is to use a radio in varying noisy environments. As an experienced audio specialist, Kenwood can draw on decades of expertise at every step: component selection, construction, optimization, evaluation and analysis. The resulting audio performance, specially engineered for transceivers, is undeniably clearer and crisper. Just listen to the difference.


The radio’s encoder/decoder function uses QT/DQT to segregate talk groups so you only hear calls from your own group. 5-TONE SIGNALLING (Encode only) The 5-tone encoder function can send 5-tone ID to another radio with 5-tone decode.


The two PF Keys can be programmed for any of the many functions available on the TK-2302/3302, permitting a customized fit for your requirements.


The rotary and key controls on the radio can provide voice confirmation of radio status or operating mode, which is convenient when you are not able to look at the TK-2302/3302 – for example, if it’s in your pocket. English is the default language, but you can switch to French, German, Dutch, Italian, Spanish, Russian or Chinese.



Radio channels can be programmed* independently for VOX, scrambler and compander functions. This means you can switch a function on or off simply by changing channels (on the same frequency).


The TK-2302/3302 provides ample capacity for operating with multiple channels or website systems.


The voice-inversion scrambler provides basic protection against casual eavesdropping.


Enjoy the convenience of hands-free operation using any optional headset. Offering a 10-level sensitivity adjustment, the internal VOX (voice-operated transmission) function automatically activates PTT when you start talking. This is great for specialized tasks or events that require hands-free, constant or repetitive communications.
