- Make sure your battery is fully charged, The weaker the battery, the weaker the signal
- The key factors affecting communication range are: antenna, obstructions, signal strength (wattage), and signal type.
- The distance to the horizon is the maximum communication range for most two-way radios.
- The higher your antenna, the farther your signal can reach before hitting the horizon, therefore the longer your communication range.
- For mounted antennas, mount your antenna standing straight-up on the highest point possible.
- Radio waves generally won’t pass through metal or hills at all.
- Each successive object a radio signal passes through reduces it’s range.
- A stronger signal is capable of withstanding successive passes through obstacles, allowing it to travel farther.
- Either VHF or UHF radio technology can work for you if you don’t really have a long range to cover.
- If you are using the radio primarily outdoors with clear line-of-sight, then VHF is a better choice because it’s signal will travel farther.
- If you are using the radio in or around buildings, in urban areas, or heavily wooded areas, then UHF is a better choice because it’s signal will navigate around obstacles better.
- If you must have a longer range than most radios can provide, then consider either buying a repeater, or contact a repeater service.
