These days, go-ahead football clubs are less tolerant of poor radio performance. Which is why the ‘Foxes’ asked Brentwood Communications to supply them with powerful radios offering seamless communication for both home and away matches. They also wanted these handheld radios to be tough and weather-resistant, so they would transmit strong reliable signals in all conditions.
After carrying out radio tests and trials, Brentwood’s specialist engineers selected Motorola DP3441 digital radios, as well as 2-wire acoustic tube earpieces. No matter how loud or harsh the environment, these compact radios enable staff to make and receive calls, whilst on the move in any Premiership ground.
This groundbreaking technology offers many new features including: improved voice clarity, dependable coverage, intelligent audio, private calling, transmit interrupt and safety features. Also, compared with analogue, digital radios are able to extend their battery life by 30-50 percent. This means users can avoid the hassle of recharging during crucial matches.
No matter how big or small the stadium, you can benefit from digital radio communications. Many football clubs have discovered there is no excuse for sticking with past technology. For it’s now possible to convert to digital in easy stages. For example, the digital platform of the DP3441 offers a migration path, which allows you to use both digital and analogue radios at the same time. This mixed mode operation assists stadium owners to budget effortlessly for the transition from analogue to digital.
The noise-rejection technology means that managers can communicate clearly during the noisiest match days – even from the distant corners of the ground. Plus, the Intelligent Audio adjusts the radio volume automatically, to compensate for any background noise present. That means users avoid missing vital calls – even when surrounded by hoards of chanting fans. The sophisticated earpieces, with integrated microphone and PTT button, make the words even clearer, and also make multi-tasking a lot easier.
The management team have the ability to target the people they really need to speak to. For instance, they can broadcast to the whole group; contact specific work-groups; or talk privately with a particular individual. During critical situations, the ‘Transmit Interrupt’ feature will override any conversations underway, so senior staff can get across an urgent message.
There is always the chance that match days expose radio users to personal risk – especially when operating away from the group. With the DP3441, however, they have the option to call for assistance at any time by depressing their Emergency button. What’s more, the ‘GPS’-enabled option means the Control Room can display the whereabouts of staff in real-time, so that team members can swiftly rescue a stricken colleague.
In short, the DP3441 Motorola two way digital radio is robust, easy-to-operate, and reasonably priced. With its dependable coverage and noise-cancelling technology, managers can use this radio with confidence during both home and away matches. Basically, the numerous features allow users to work smarter and respond more quickly. For the same cost as an analogue radio, they can now benefit from full digital functionality. Which multiplies all-round safety and effectiveness, during highly-charged match days.
