Factors to Consider When Choosing a Two Way Radio for your Farm
Learn more about the factors to consider when choosing two way radios for farms
Range and coverage
Two-way radios can provide coverage over several miles, making them an essential tool for farmers working in remote areas. However, ensuring a reliable two way radio network coverage often involves additional expenses for base stations or repeaters. This could be costly. This is why we recommend Push-to-talk over Cellular (PoC) two way radios for farmers, as they ensure reliable coverage nationwide. Note that considering battery life will only apply if you are seeking a portable radio, as mobile radios receive power from the vehicle.
Battery life and durability
Long battery life ensures that radios are always available when needed, while easily replaceable batteries make it easy to keep radios charged and functioning even during long work days. Consider pairing a couple extra batteries. Extra batteries are available for sale and rentals via Expert Mobile Communications.
Frequency and licensing requirements
Traditional two way radios operate on frequencies, which are mostly licensed by the government. Failure to comply with radio licensing regulations can result in interference with other radio systems and legal penalties, which can be costly. Alternatively, a PoC radio does not operate on frequencies, which helps alleviate the potential cost of having to license a radio or paying penalties for unlicensed devices.
Durability and weather resistance
Farmers work in all kinds of weather conditions, and their equipment must be able to withstand harsh environments. Two-way radios with rugged construction and waterproof ratings can help ensure they remain functional in any condition. Expert Mobile carries radio options in this category.
Compatibility with other communications systems
Before you buy a new two way radio, ensure the new radio can be integrated with the old devices already on your network. Failure to do this could result in further expenses on upgrades. PoC radios are designed to work seamlessly with smartphones, LMRs, and other (PoC) systems, enabling farmers and workers in food processing plants to expand the coverage and capabilities of their communications systems. The ability to integrate with other systems can also enhance safety by enabling emergency notifications and location tracking.
Why PoC radios are the best choice for farms
PoC (or Push-to-talk over Cellular) is a communication system that enables two-way radio communication over cellular networks, similar to a traditional two way radio or walkie-talkie. PoC technology uses data networks to transmit voice, eliminating the need for traditional radio frequencies and licenses.
Nationwide signal coverage and range
PoC radios use cell towers to operate. This gives you nationwide coverage, eliminating the need for traditional radio frequencies and licenses.
Improved workflow management
With PoC radios, farmers can quickly and easily communicate tasks with their team regardless of where they are working on or off the farm for maximum productivity.
Rich data and tracking features
PoC devices come with rich features like GPS tracking and real-time location sharing, enabling farmers to make more informed decisions about task assignments and resource allocation.
