How many chargers will you supply? Do the radios come fully charged?

Like most walkie talkie hire companies, we generally supply “50% chargers”. This means we’ll provide sufficient chargers to charge half the walkie talkies at once. However they will be fully charged when you receive them from us.

Which are better? Digital or analogue radios?

We say “digital”. Not only will the battery life be slightly better, but in addition you should get a slightly increased range out of them.

How long do Motorola radios last on one charge and how long do they take to charge?

The expected battery life is eight hours with typical use (5% transmit, 5% receive and 90% standby). Batteries will take approximately 1 hour for a rapid (90%) charge. At this point the charging indicator on the base will flash green. Full charge takes around 3 hours.

Do you supply a licence to walkie talkie hire customers?

Yes you need an Ofcom licence to use higher powered units. However don’t worry! We’ll supply you with a paper copy of our licence, which will cover you. We send one out with every booking.

Will I get interference when using walkie talkies?

Incredibly unlikely. In fact our digital radios are encrypted to avoid this problem. If you make use of all the encryption features on a DP1400 radio, there’s a higher chance of you winning the lottery!

What does a radio repeater do?

A repeater extends the range of walkie-talkies. It basically consists of a box of electronics and an antenna which you put somewhere high in the centre of the area where you need coverage. It gives you a much greater range on 2 channels.

Do I need earpieces with radios?

Most of our walkie talkie hire customers use earpieces with the radios. Firstly it means that conversations can be heard in a noisy environment. Secondly it give you more privacy as it means your radios’ conversations won’t be heard by members of the public.

Can I use my own radios too?

The short answer is “no”. In fact we use encryption to prevent interruptions to calls. Basically you then only hear someone on your channel if they use the same encryption settings that you are using. However on or our DP1400 digital models, the chance of this happening is around 1 in 16 million!
