Radio Procedure!

1) Re-adjust your radio to the correct channel and a comfortable volume.

2) Always listen to every radio broadcast, it could be for you.

3) Do not cut into other radio users conversations, listen before you speak.

4) In case of emergency keep the airwaves clear for priority messages online.

5) Operators should gain radio users attention by saying “HELLO” at the start of every.

message. Press transmit button, pause, then say “HELLO…”

6) Proceed with the name of the person you are calling and on busy networks repeat the name – e.g. “Hello Steve Morris… Steve Morris”

7) Remember to say who you are – e.g. “This is John Wood…”

8) On hearing no reply, repeat message. If there is still no reply…

9) Continue with “Nothing heard out”

10) Every broadcast that requires a response should end with “OVER”, if a broadcast requires no response at the end say “OUT”. Either or, not “OVER and OUT”

11) Do not block the airways with long conversation, think before you speak and have regular breaks.

12) Understand how your radio works and its functions.

13) Remember that the antenna is not a carry handle, nor is it edible!

14) Ensure you are fully conversant with these simple radio procedures and your radio system will be far more effective.

I would just like to say a huge thank you to the walkie talkies team for the delivery of my Pronto radios. I only ordered them at 4pm and they arrived next morning. Great initial communication and the radios exactly as described.

Dear Walkie-Talkies, I just wanted to say a massive thank you for my new charger pack what a fantastic handy piece of kit, it will serve me well on my motorcycle trips and when we go camping. Also may I say what a easy process it is to purchase from your website and the charger arrived next day. If I have any further requirements I will most certainly be coming back to you.

We have been working with Walkie-Talkies to equip our front of house and facilities staff with radio equipment for several years now. I have always found their personnel to be very personable, professional and knowledgeable. They have always strived to tailor solutions to meet our needs and our budget, even allowing us to trial equipment to make sure that it fitted our requirements. Their after care service is also excellent. I would most definitely recommend Walkie-Talkies’ services.

Was looking to upgrade to digital radios for my school and decided upon the Motorola DP1400 and has proved to be an excellent investment. The radios were great value and delivery came early the next day. Will definitely be using you again.
