Do I need an Ofcom Licence?
This is one of the most frequently asked questions that customers ask us about using two-way radios for events. Two-way radios do require a licence, unless you are using licence-free (PMR446) walkie talkies, however, we would not recommend these for private communication on a larger event site. A basic radio licence costs £75 for five years use, and this covers all of your radios plus any new radios you might add. More info about radio licensing here.

What range can I expect?
Range is dependent on the terrain you are using the two-way radios in. A quick conversation with us can point you to a solution that is best suited to the size of your particular venue. A basic 'radio-to-radio' set-up will provide around 2 miles of coverage, and for most venues this should be satisfactory, but if need be, this range can be increased by installing a repeater/base station to take coverage out to around 10 miles.  

You'll be looking forward to a busy summer season of events, but you want to make sure you can do so safely. Make sure you keep your team connected and everybody safe with two-way radios. Equipment choice can be led by a number of factors ranging from the end user’s role to the functionality of the type of radio system being used.
