What is a two-way radio?
A two-way radio is a device that provides an opportunity for two people or parties to communicate with each other if they have the same radios with similar frequencies. It is different from other radios such as the broadcasting one because in a broadcasting radio, a person can only receive the content through this radio but is unable to transmit and data or information through it. The best example of a two way radio can be that of a walkie-talkie as a person can easily communicate with the other person by this hand held device if they are present at a distance from each other. Even though this has facilitated the level of communication in many ways but still there are some factors which might even hinder the performance of this radio and thus the person should be aware of them and the technology used so that they could understand more about it.
Analog vs. digital technology used in a two-way radio
Even though the type of technology used in a two way radio is still evolving but there were different types of technologies that had been used in it. For example, when comparing the analog vs. digital technology, it can be said that the analog technology facilitated communication with air traffic controllers and control towers, and as compared to digital technology; it is much simple in nature. Even when the signals are weak or cracking, this technology still increases the efficiency of communication. On the other hand, …
