We now have a set of 6 hand held Walkie-Talkie personal radio communication units.
These professional Topcom PT-1078 PMR (Private Mobile Radio) Walkie-Talkie (446 MHz) units are probably the best on the market, without having to hold a VHF Radio Licence.
They are extremely robust and ideal for outdoor activities / expedition use, being:
- Water Immersion Proof (IPX7)
- Float in Water (IPX7)
- Dust Proof
- 446 MHz / 8 Channels / 121 Sub-Channels
- 10Km Long Range
We plan to use these for communication between Expedition Vehicles whilst driving, as well as on occasions when our Expedition Team becomes split-up, to conduct different activities, etc. (especially useful in areas where little / no mobile phone coverage is available).
