It’s late September, for every farmers, busy harvest season has arrived. Regardless of the size of the farm, using two way radios will greatly increase convenience. What two way radios for farms we recommended? Read on!

Why use two way radios in the farms?

The main reason is two way radios are convenient and quick to report the harvesting progress every day. The second reason is that many agricultural facilities are relatively large and prone to accidents. If there is no phone signal, in remote places, it is difficult for others to know that people need rescue. When a fire hazard occurs, if there are two ways radios, you can listen to it at the first time, and inspection vehicles, fire trucks, and police vehicles can arrive at the accident site in the shortest time. In the event of an emergency such as an animal injury, the rescue can also be quickly notified. To sum up, the role of two way radios in farm cannot be underestimated.

Which farm radio we recommend?

For people use tractors in the farm, I will recommend one mini mobile radio for you, RT98. RT98 is a mini mobile radio for vehicles. Its max power up to 15W, with VHF band 136-174MHz or UHF band 400-470MHz. It also has FreeNet version, which is for German radio standard. It only weighs 434g and its dimension is 100*106*24mm. Its compact and mini body is smaller than my palm, even smaller than a one-dollar bill. So it will not take up too much space to install.
