When it comes to outdoor communications, you can't go wrong with a VHF radio. Designed mainly for outdoor use, VHF waves are known to travel well over open land and water. That means they're perfect for pilots, sailors and more. The radio signals even do well in foliage conditions and near wooden buildings. Read More
However, VHF waves tend to be easily disrupted inside buildings, in city conditions, etc., so they're mainly used in remote areas or in specialized situations where obstructions are minimal. Unless you are using your radios almost exclusively outdoors, you will want UHF or Digital radios.
The difference between UHF and VHF can be explained with frequency penetration. VHF waves travel about twice the distance of UHF waves on open ground, rolling hills or through foliage. However, VHF waves are very poor at penetrating walls, buildings and rugged terrain. That means that the signal can be interrupted by something as simple as a hill or a small building. So, if you are working exclusively outdoors with open land, rolling hills or heavy trees, VHF radios are the best. In any other situation, including indoor-to-outdoor use, UHF radios will be the best choice.
Despite their limitations, VHF portable radios continue to be in high demand for outdoor personal and business use because of their large range and ability to keep people in constant contact. When you want to buy a VHF mobile radio system for your home or company, radios and walkie-talkies by Motorola and Kenwood are your best bet. Here at TechWholesale.com, you will find the VHF radios you need as well as other products like VHF radio accessories that make communicating a breeze.

When you shop our mobile VHF radio inventory, it is always important to remember that VHF radios and walkie-talkies are designed only for outdoor use. Again, VHF waves cannot penetrate solid materials very well, so they aren't suited for most indoor conditions. If you must buy professional radios for indoor or indoor-outdoor use, you will certainly want to shop our UHF radio selection. The range of UHF radios is not as great as VHF radios, but the wavelengths allow you to communicate across barriers such as floors and walls. If, however, you need to communicate across wide open spaces such as fields, outdoor event venues, or even the water and air for boating and aircraft use, a VHF mobile radio is ideal.
VHF portable radios are also popular for outdoor users because they require less power to operate than UHF and digital radio options. That means they'll need to be charged less often and their battery packs will weigh less. However, if you're planning an extended outdoor expedition, you will still need to have a good supply of batteries and chargers on hand in order to make sure that you always have enough energy to run your radios. Fortunately, we also carry a full line of spare batteries and VHF two-way radio accessories. Replacement antennas, power sources, and much more are all available for our VHF two-way radios.
There is more that could be said, but we want the opportunity to help you directly. Contact us today with any questions about VHF radios or any of our other professional radio products.
