Supervising public events or displays are frequently stressful. Using two way radio as a reliable method of communication can be the difference between success and failure. A lot of organisations find the cost of buying and maintaining their own fleet too expensive leaving radio hire as the cost effective option.

Quite a number of organisations use two way radios for the first time when hiring to run small events.

Advantages of hiring two way radios for this are:

  • It’s the best solution as it is on a short term basis so no long term financial commitment.
  • Short term radio hire needs no capital outlay.
  • You only need to pay when you actually need them.
  • Two way radio provides an effective way for your team to communicate over a site, contributing to a well-run event.
  • Benefits health and safety for both your team and guests.
  • No expensive mobile phone call charges.

Two way radios remove the need for mobile phones for your team to communicate with each other at the same. Simply by pressing the ‘Push to Talk’ button, everyone on the selected channel can receive you. This is especially important if you need to get directions or instructions to your team clearly and quickly.

Multiple channels can be programmed into separate channels so you can split your team into groups. Examples of this would be that you could have one general channel for everyone, a channel for the car parking staff, a channel for the catering staff and a channel for the management team. This way you can select the channel of who you need to give instructions too.

Short term radio hire means you can get to use and experiment with radio technology with less financial commitment than if you bought radio equipment outright. If you find two way radio useful and think that it could provide value to your organisation, we can arrange putting them on long term hire or arrange a deal for your needs.
