What are the Best Parks and Recreation Radios?

Motorola RDU4100

A Tough Radio with Great Range

If you’re looking for some serious range along with rugged durability, look no further than the Motorola RDU4100

This is a UHF radio with 10 channels and four watts of power. 

When it comes to range, you’ll be able to communicate reliably for up to three miles outside. When inside, you’re going to have 30 floors or up to 350,000 square feet of clear communication. 

This radio is tough, and is built to military grade specifications. Your parks won’t be able to make a dent in this device’s case. That’s because it comes with a metal die-cast chassis covered in polycarbonate. The hardware meets MIL-STD 810 C-F standards. 

That means the radio can withstand being submerged in mud or dropped from your park’s highest tree without breaking. It can withstand a blast from a firehose, so there’s nothing your little league recreation team can throw that will break this device. 

Clear real time communication sent through UHF radio frequencies is another amazing benefit of this device. It can get around the trees and shrubbery of your park while also working inside buildings, such as a recreation center.

Motorola CLS1410

The Most Economical Choice

If your parks department has a tightening budget, we recommend the Motorola CLS1410

It’s a reliable UHF Radio with four channels. The name CLS actually stands for clear, light, and simple, which tells you everything you need to know about this quality device. 

You can communicate for up to two miles outside, which should be fine for most municipal parks, Inside you have a range of up to 15 floors. 

Vibracall alerts work like a cell phone’s vibration setting, so you’ll be able to get discreet notifications while on the job. 

Simplified cloning will make set-up nice and easy. You just have to program one handset and then copy those settings easily to all of the other devices. 

If one of your employees drops the radio in a park, the keypad lockout feature will ensure that no one will be able to access it. 

This radio has an 18-hour battery life and uses 83 digital and 38 analog private lines to protect your communications. 

It also runs 121 interference eliminator codes and 56 business exclusive frequencies, making it a very safe choice.
