Tom's Tech Talk (#6): Two Way Radios, Magic or Money?
For most radio users they know two things, I push the transmit button and talk and I release the transmit button and listen. Other than that it is magic as to how my radio system works.
Through the years, we have come across radio systems that have one designated person from their corporation or department who had intimate details as to how the system worked, all the way to having a large radio system with multiple sites and no one having a clue as to how the system was configured. The reason I bring this up is money. Not knowing what or how your radio system is designed and operated can lead to added cost through research or consultants to spending hours unsure where a problem lies and unsuccessfully trying to resolve it.
