The range of walkie-talkie radios are dependent on objects between transmitting/receiving radios. But usually, in urban areas the range is from around 1 – 2 miles and 2 – 3 miles in rural areas.

If you need to communicate over a larger area, we can offer you repeater aerial to hire which will boost the signal to increase the coverage range.

If you want to transmit over wider areas, we can offer PoC (Push To Talk Over Cellular) radios to transmit over any distance using 2/3/4G signals and WIFI.

Yes. Analogue radios broadcasts as a continuous stream of electrical signals, which makes the transmissions easily interfered with by natural disturbances such as storms etc. But, analogue will still provide some kind of signal even when interfered with.

Digital radios don’t send a continuous signal. When a digital signal experiences interference, the entire signal is lost. However, when the signal is present it is easier to tune into than analogue. Also, digital radios can reduce background noise and have a larger range.

We build your hire package just for you, so your order will be dependent on your requirements. This will be discussed at your consultation.

  • review rating 5  I bought a new LTE Digital radio for work use, I contacted Digitall Comms as they are local to us and asked if they can assist me with programming it. (Wasnt sure how they would welcome this as not bought through them)... They were very happy to help and asked me to nip in with a radio and the new one so they can sort it. I called in and saw Mark who seemed very knowledgeable , he had not seen this latest model but reassured me he would sort it out for me. That he did. The friendly staff made me a brew whilst he took the radio into his workshop. within 10 mins I had a fully programmed radio all good to go and was charged very little for his time. We at Warley Road Primary school, Halifax will be sure to use Digitall Comms in the future for any other radio requirements or when we come to upgrade our existing radio. Thank you. Dan

  • review rating 5  Churchill Security have used Digitall Comms for the past couple of years for radio hire. We couldn't fault the service or quality of the equipment. Even with only a few hours notice, the radios always arrive on time for our event staff. We would definitely recommend this company to anyone looking to hire any radios.

  • review rating 5  Was trying to upload enquiry forms to obtain a quote for hire of radios and both methods offered on the web site failed to send the information I had entered, so clicked on the online chat box and a customer service person was typing almost immediately. Problem described and immediately solved by me being given an email address to send the enquiry to. Sorted. Well done Customer Services. Can't comment about anything else until I get the quote and, if accepted, use the service.
