Why Businesses Still Trust Analog 2-Way Walkie Talkies

Are analog radios still worth it in the era of the latest digital radios and push-to-talk over cellular radios? The answer is yes. It is amazing how this technology, which was invented in the 1930s for military communications, has become a choice tool – from logistics and facility management to schools to large conferences – thanks to its range of use, battery life, and channel utilization.

In the Philippines, sectors like security and law enforcement use the ever-reliable analog radios to keep everyone in the loop, getting things done as they are faster and efficient. People after all depend on public safety to keep them safe whether in the street or in a shopping mall. Although digital radios have been accepted as the next logical step in radio communications, analog technology has remained as relevant as they are capable.

The advantages are clear: Analog radios maximize productivity

  1. Coverage. Walkie talkies have the range to connect teams across the workplace. People never miss important messages as they are sent out on time and in real-time.
  2. Audio quality. Voice is more natural, and we all want that compared to less robotic sounds. We get the communication clear enough to take the next action. It is because analog radios do not have latency, which is the delay of a fraction of a second caused by analog to digital to analog.
  3. Instant communications. One thing has remained the same: there is no substitute for voice. Analog provides immediate messaging while keeping everyone connected.
  4. Etiquette. You can pause if the other person is talking, and the person, in turn, will also give you the same courtesy. That is why walkie talkie users employ the same language and etiquette by using terms like Over, which means one is done speaking; Copy, meaning if one has understood what was said, Out, if the conversation Is finished; and more.
  5. Affordable. Analog is generally cheaper than digital. If you are looking for analog radios, MacroVista has launched some radio promotions:
