Some Brief Information on Walkie Talkies

Article of the Day………ok so i haven’t got a piece of writing each day, but if i get an opportunity I’ll post articles I find fascinating. Lucky enough here’s one of those articles that I read and had to share. Should you enjoy it as much as me, please add one of those special social media likes, you know the one which tells everyone that you loved something, rather then you sat on your arse and watched Television!

audioDeveloped during World War 2 for use in the military, walki talkies are now commonly used by millions of people in work and in homes all over the planet.
Originally quite large and cumbersome, just like so many other electrical devices, they have shrunk in size considerably over the years. In general, a walkie talkie will have a mouthpiece to talk in and a speaker to listen from they also can come with a compact earphone microphone for discreet conversations if need be.

Licensed and Unlicensed Walkie Talkies
Walkie talkies come in two basic types. One type is referred to as licensed, while the other type is referred to as unlicensed. A “licensed” set of walkie talkies will transmit conversations over a radio frequency that has been isolated and designated specifically for that particular set of walkie talkies.
This type of walkie talkie would be the type that you would see a pit crew at a car race communicating with their driver with.

Right Off an Electronics Store Shelf
Unlicensed Walkie Talkies would be the type of walkie talkie that you can buy off the shelf at any electronics store. While there is an extremely small chance of it, you can run into situations with unlicensed walkie talkies where unrelated walkie talkie users using completely different walkie talkies can over ride each other and cause a confusing situation.
This is precisely the reason why licensed walkie talkies are available for professionals who can’t afford the risk of these types of situations.

Always a Place for Walkie Talkies
The advent of the mobile phone took the place of the walkie talkie for a good many people over the years that the cell phone has been in use. However; there will always be situations and places where a set of walkie talkies can’t be replaced. For instance, hunters and outdoors men use them to communicate with each other in desolate areas where cell phone reception is unavailable.

Also, walkie talkies don’t have a time delay while a call goes through, which is a benefit in commercial situations.

mototrbo DP4000 SERIES ACCESSORIES

audioWithout giving too much about this earpiece piece of writing, but I thought it fascinating and related to what I’m currently doing.

From the supervisor in the plant to the receptionist at a hotel, MOTOTRBO digital solutions can transform your enterprise and make employee interactions smarter and safer. Our DP4000 Series radios have expanded capabilities, like full colour displays and powerful data features, to empower people like never before.

That’s why it’s critical to choose the only accessories certified to perform with MOTOTRBO radios. The DP4000 Series accessories help remaster your workplace

– with forward-thinking features like integrated Bluetooth® and Intelligent Audio – so you can achieve greater efficiency.

GET EXCEPTIONAL AUDIO EVERYWHERE

Our exclusive IMPRES Smart Audio accessories communicate with the radio to suppress ambient noise, improve voice intelligibility and amplify loudness – even in high-noise and harsh weather. Automatic Gain Control (AGC) adds another layer of exceptional audio. It detects changes in voice levels from the individual talking, then increases or decreases microphone gain so the listener hears you clearly regardless of how loudly or quietly you are talking into your accessory.

ENHANCE MOBILITY WITH
INTEGRATED BLUETOOTH

Improve the mobility of your crews without wires getting tangled. We’ve embedded Bluetooth in to your DP4000 Series radio so no adaptor is needed. Indoors at the plant or outdoors at the gate, our exclusive Operations Critical Wireless earpieces handle loud environments while an optional wireless push-to-talk (PTT) button seamlessly links to any earpiece. Just put the PTT in a pocket or on a lapel and connect instantly.

TAKE INTELLIGENT AUDIO
FURTHER WITH IMPRES

Our DP4000 Series radios offer a smart feature in digital mode –Intelligent Audio. With Intelligent Audio, the radio volume automatically adjusts to compensate for background noise so workers don’t have to adjust their radio volume to avoid missing a call in loud situations or disturbing others when they move into quiet places. Increased background noise suppression filters out

unwanted external clamour – from road traffic to the roar of engines. Your workforce can also enjoy the benefits of Intelligent Audio with select audio accessories.

Plug in an IMPRES accessory and it instantly sets the volume level and enhances the Intelligent Audio

capabilities on the radio. With IMPRES, your radio not only recognizes the accessory and loads the correct profile to optimize audio performance, but combined with Intelligent Audio it intuitively adjusts volume to compensate for background noise.

EVEN OUR BATTERIES ARE SMARTER

Shift workers rely on batteries that outlast their shifts and our time-tested, “Proven Tough” IMPRES Smart Energy System stands up to the challenge. It automates battery maintenance and eliminates overcharging, no matter how long radios are left in the charger. Our DP4000 Series IMPRES batteries store critical data, letting you know when they need to be replaced. These batteries also feature a unique, textured surface that makes it easier to grip the radio, even when wearing gloves.

Save energy and money by using the same charger to power up all your MOTOTRBO portable radios. Simply mix and match radios and batteries in one MOTOTRBO multi-unit charger.

ONE ANTENNA HANDLES THE BAND

The DP4000 Series radios have a new wideband UHF whip antenna that provides coverage across the entire band (403-527 MHz). Choose stubby antennas when you want an unobtrusive option. These stubby antennas offer even better performance than previous Motorola stubby antennas.
