Why are walkie talkies effective for individuals out adventuring? Ideal for short range communication, walkie talkies will provide users with additional communication support when out exploring, from camping, hiking, skiing and more.
Walkie Talkies operate over PMR446 frequencies, which is free to transmit over. Meaning there are no additional costs to pay for radio licencing.
When exploring or camping, people will often experience periods where there will be little to no phone signal. Remote locations are common when travelling and experiencing the outdoors.
Radios are the ultimate travel companion; explorers can be assured they’ll be able to keep in contact with others even in remote locations, increasing their safety and providing overall ease throughout trips.
