From cycling and hiking to camping or exploring, there’s plenty to do in the great outdoors. These are undoubtedly healthy activities, but there are safety precautions to consider, and keeping in touch is one of them. Mobile phone coverage cannot always be relied upon in remote places, making two-way radio the only dependable option. It is essential to choose a model that has sufficient range and a long battery life.
Brentwood Communications can provide two-way radios that are designed for use when traversing various terrains. The robust Motorola TLKR T80 has all the features needed to cope with extreme environments. Highly specified, yet easy to use, it includes a built-in LED torch and a splash proof exterior. This model also has a group call facility, making it ideal for use in a camping expedition.
For outdoor pursuits, waterproof two-way radios that can also withstand freezing conditions are usually advisable. Our range of digital radios are fully waterproof and can tolerate conditions below freezing point for extended periods. If activities are curtailed to a fairly small place, unlicensed radios such as the Kenwood TK3501, Motorola XT420 and Motorola XT460 are suitable. Over larger areas, especially where other radio users and interference may occur, we recommend using licensed radios. You can view our range of digital radios here.
