Adventuremen / Adventurefest Two Way Radio Guide:


Hey Adventuremen! Welcome to our two way radio guide. This is just some basic information to consider when purchasing your own set of / or single radio(s).


What To Look For When Buying A Radio:


  1. Radio must operate on the Family Radio Service band, also abbreviated FRS.

  2. Radio must have the ability to enable a privacy setting or channel.

  3. Rado should have the ability to operate over long distances.

    1. Keep in mind that the advertised operating range is in optimal conditions, flat, wide open spaces without interference. Operating range will be significantly reduced when hills, buildings or other obstructions are prevalent.

  4. Look for a radio that uses AA batteries. This will enable you to easily swap batteries or use generic rechargeable batteries. Radios that use Li-Ion batteries require a special dock or cable for charging. Also look for a radio that uses a standardized charger, such as micro or mini USB.

  5. Radio should have some sort of ruggedization to it. Because of our activities and nature of our group a radio that can survive a drop or exposure to water is recommended but not required.

  6. Belt clip. Some radios come with one and some come without one.

  7. Headset capable. Again, this is not a requirement but should be a consideration when purchasing. Sometimes it is best to have both hands free but still be able to use your radio.

  8. Some radios have other built in features that are nice but not required, such as flashlights, waterproofing, able to float, and the NOAA weather channels. Usually these radios are higher end and therefore more expensive.
