Analogue radios have been used for business applications since the 1930s and they’re still widely used today. This traditional form of radio communication operates via frequency, as opposed to digital radios which operate using a mathematic system. These radios offer good coverage, providing a stronger signal when the two recipients are closer together. The signal starts to drop when analogue radios come towards the end of their coverage; which many people actually consider an advantage.
There’s no disputing that digital two-way radios are constantly growing in popularity, but analogue radios are still well-loved amongst radio users in a number of different industries. Many of today’s analogue radios now have modern functions such as Lone Worker application and pre-programmed text messages. Just like digital radios, they’re jam-packed with features to enhance user safety and increase staff productivity.
Analogue radios are much more affordable than digital radios, so if you don’t think you’ll necessarily need all the features of a digital radio this could be a good option for you. They also have a tough waterproof and dustproof exterior (most models, anyway), giving you all the assurance you need that your radio will be able to withstand harsh environments.
