As governments are enforcing the social distancing laws in workplaces, more and more companies are turning towards two-way radio communication among the team members. Sending an email for everything can be time-consuming and sending voice notes over smartphones can lead to distraction through smartphones. It seems a very easy and efficient way to communicate through two-way walkie-talkies. This has increased the demand for Push to Talk over Cellular (PoC) Walkie-talkies and many individuals who have not used the devices professionally are looking into learning how to use these devices. This a step-by-step guide on using the PoC walkie-talkie that will help you incorporate walkie talkie network to improve your work-life balance.
Step 1: Turn on the device
Find the power switch to turn on the device on the top of the device. The same button is used for controlling the volume, so handle it carefully. Turn on all your devices, most new devices come charges, if your device is not charge, fully charge it before turning it on.
Step: Tune in to the correct frequency channel
On the other side of this power, the switch will be a dial labeled as channel or frequency. Set this dial to set the channel frequency you wish to tune into. You will need to tune all your devices to the same frequency to establish a network connection.
Step 3: Use the PTT
Hold the Push To Talk (PTT) button on the side when you wish to send an audio signal. Wait for a second after pressing the PTT button before speaking into the radio, and immediately release the button after you are done talking so you can receive the signals from other devices. You will not receive any messages while you are holding the PTT button.
Step 4: Test your devices
Explore all the additional features of the devices, test the GPS functions and look for group calls features. When all your devices have been turned into the same network and you have explored the buttons and functions, test your devices. Turn up the volume button and experiment by sending audio messages and your geo locations to all devices from different locations. This will help you understand the signal strength and radio courage area. If you face any problem with the device feel free to contact the manufacturers or retailers. If all is good you can continue using them.
Step 5: Recharge and clean
When you are not using the walkie-talkie devices they must be turned of and set to recharge. After some weeks of using the walkie-talkie devices, you must clean them so that any dust trapped inside the grids does not compromise the quality of communication.
