VHF Walkie-talkies

You may have come across the term VHF in relation to walkie talkie hire, and wondered what it means.

VHF stands for Very High Frequency, and is the the frequency range between 30 Mhz (Megahertz) and 300 Mhz.

Choosing between VHF & UHF (Ultra High Frequency) is important when hiring two way radio walkie talkies because the ‘wavelength’ is inversely proportional to the frequency, which means that the higher UHF frequencies (300 – 3000 Mhz) have a shorter wavelength than VHF.  This means that the shorter UHF signals tend to be better suited to use in buildings and built up areas, because the ‘waves’ get around objects better.

Conversely, VHF tends to be a better solution for outdoor events, as the lower frequency normally allows greater signal range, which may be important.

Radio Communications for Farmers in Lincolnshire

If you are  Farmers in Lincolnshire who requires reliable & cost effective two way radio communications then Yesway Communications’ can provide a wide area system covering most of the Lincolnshire.

We have experience of providing Lincolnshire farmers with wide area communications.

A recent client wanted to be able to communicate instantly over a wide area.

The farm actually consisted of two separate farms a few miles apart.

There was also the need for operation inside buildings, vehicles and open countyside.

An initial onsite meeting and assessment was arranged with the farmer.

The initial meeting included a discussion of the clients ideal system, and communication range.

During the initial meeting, tests were also carried out using RF (Radio Frequency) equipment.

RF checks helped establish an initial picture of coverage range at low power.

It also allowed the accurate checking for coverage issues, such as inside metal framed buildings, such as storage sheds.

The next stage was to design a system that would exceed the farmers requirements.

Our service included system design, Ofcom Licence application, onsite installation of the repeater system.

Radio Hire Use Cases

How to Effectively control your Stewards During an Event

Stewards play a crucial role during any event.  Crowd control and safety being one of their critically important roles.

If an emergency situation was to occur, for example with a member of the public becoming ill of injured, time is of the essence.

Two way radio systems can be configured in number of ways to help stewards and event organisers effectively cope with emergency incidents.

For example, a button on the radio can be assigned so that when it is pressed an alarm alert is raised with the event controller, or other stewards.

Radios incorporating GPS technology can help other staff members track and locate a particular stewards location. This is an important feature, as it allows medical assistance to quickly be directed to the correct location, saving valuable time.

Another benefit of GPS technology for the stewards and management, is that the stewards may have been subcontracted from an external contractor, and therefore not be familiar with the layout of the event location. Therefore the GPS tracking technology eliminates the risk of potential confusion and uncertainty, as to exact location, when explaining where the incident has taken place.

For stewards that are working in remote locations within the site, a ‘Man Down’ solution may be appropriate. This solution prompts the radio user to press a button on the radio at a specific set time interval.

If the button is not pressed when prompted, then an alert alarm is sent back to the system controller. This system helps ensure that all stewards are ok, and if not, help can be sent out.

There area a range of options that can be configured into a radio system to help stewards with their duties, and we are more than happy to help you achieve the best possible system for your events particular circumstances.
