One of the first steps to take before purchasing a new two-way radios is to determine the best frequency band for your needs. The reason behind this is to ensure you receive optimum results from your investment.
By selecting the right frequency band for your radio system you can ensure that it will support your workplace environment, thus increasing productivity and safety for your team.
There are two radio frequency bands available VHF (Very High Frequency) and UHF (Ultra High Frequency). Generally, VHF (very high frequency) radio systems are used for short-range communication, while UHF (ultra high frequency) radio systems are used for longer-range communication. There is also less interference and better signal clarity when you compare UHF to VHF radios.
Commercial two-way VHF radios typically have a high band of between 136-174 MHz, while commercial two-way UHF radios have a high band of 420-470 MHz. The higher the frequency, the better the in-building penetration.
The selection of UHF or VHF does depended on your required operational area, both UHF and VHF are considered line-of-sight two way radio systems, which means they rely on a direct path between the sender and receiver.
Below are examples of where you would deploy UHF or VHF radios systems
No, UHF and VHF radios operate on different frequencies and are not compatible with each other.
