Digital Two Way Radios

Digital Two Way Radios for On-Site Communication

The two way radio market has seen a digital craze over the last 5 years.  From the introduction of MotoTRBO to the FCC's Narrowbanding Initiative, digital is in front and center in the two way radio market.  Twowayradiocenter.com offers a number of affordable digital two way radios from Motorola and Kenwood.  

Are you thinking of going digital with your two way radio system and are shocked by some of the expensive quotes you've seen?  We can help.  There's no denying Digital two way radios are an awesome improvement for two way radio users.  Digital two way radios offer one to one communication, expanded channel capacity, and in some cases are being mandated by the Federal Communications Commission.  There are several types of digital two way radios available for customers to use today and at best all of them are only semi-capable of working with an existing fleet of two way radios.  This creates challenges, do you replace some of your two way radio fleet or do you replace the entire fleet.  Once making the decision to change, do you go with TDMA Digital, CDMA Digital, or Motorola's Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum technology to meet your needs?  If you are trying to communicate over wide areas or with a repeater, TDMA or FDMA Digital is the best way to go.  If you're a smaller business, school, church, or nursing home, Motorola's FHSS technology is less expensive and does not require any coordination with the Federal Communications Commission.  That's a win!

Motorola offers two classes of Digital two way radios in the FHSS class, the Motorola DLR Series and the Motorola DTR Series.  There are distinct benefits of each of these two way radios which are detailed below.  Additionally, Motorola offers TDMA digital two way radios whereas Kenwood offers FDMA digital 2 way radios.  We believe all three technologies have their advantages based on your need, not the price of the walkie talkie or the technology.    

Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum Products

Two way radios using Motorola's 900 mHz FHSS products do not require an FCC license.  These well equipped walkie talkies are best for use on campuses the size of an elementary school or smaller.  Models include:

Motorola DLR Series Two Way Radios

 The Motorola DLR Series two way radio is designed for Retail Stores, Restaurants, Doctor's, Dentists, Gyms, Places of Worship, Early Education Centers, and other smaller footprint businesses.   The DLR offers several benefits over traditional two way radios including having multiple one to one conversations going on without interrupting the entire staff, lighter radios, longer battery life, and crystal clear communication.  Motorola DLR Series two way radios come in 2 and 6 channel models.  

Motorola DTR Series Two Way Radios

The Motorola DTR Series two way radio is designed for Apartment Communities, Car Dealerships, Camping Centers, Hotels, Elementary, and Middle Schools.  The DTR Series two way radios allow you to program call lists so you can easily scroll through to find the person or group you'd like to speak with.  The Motorola DTR Series two way radio will communicate as clear as a 4-5 watt traditional two way radio while being less than 1/2 of the weight and having up to 20% more battery power.  The DTR Series Two Way Radios uses 

Motorola TDMA Two Way Radio Products

Motorola offers a number of models using TDMA technology.  These walkie talkies can be use traditional UHF and VHF frequencies and can often be used alongside your older analog two way radios.  TDMA digital two way radios are not compatible with FDMA digital 2 way radios.   

Kenwood FDMA Two Way Radio Products

Kenwood offers several FDMA two way radio products.  These walkie talkies also use traditional UHF and VHF frequencies and can sometimes be used with your older analog two way radios.  FDMA digital two way radios are not compatible with TDMA digital two way radios.  

We Educate  .... You Decide if Digital Two Way Radios are Right for Your Business!

Is there a compelling reason to pick one type of digital two way radio over another?  Do you have existing two way radios?  If the answer is yes, then you should select a TDMA or an FDMA product.  If you don't use two way radios and your business is in a complex under 500,000 square feet, you should strongly consider Motorola's DLR or DTR products.  They work great and require no FCC license.  If you're already using walkie talkies, Kenwood and Motorola both make excellent products. 

Why don't TDMA and FDMA products work together?  Motorola and Kenwood use different technologies to convert audio into digital and then convert it back to sound.  Analog transmissions actually rebroadcast the actual sound where digital converts sound into digits and then converts it back to sound on the other side.  That's a simplified explanation but it's accurate.  Both Motorola and Kenwood make excellent products.  We suggest you pick the one with a rebate or the one you're most comfortable with. 

Is TDMA better than FDMA?  Let me ask you, is Ford better than Chevrolet?  Vanilla or Chocolate?  Both Motorola and Kenwood argue their products are better.  There are differences between both and both are excellent.  Unless you're matching up to existing walkie talkies, look at rebates before making your decision.  No matter how you go, you'll be pleased with your selection
