6 Tips To Keep Your Two Way Radio
With the help of some common sense guides and product owner manuals, maintaining your two-way radio is easy.
Two-way radios provide a good communication tool for facility managers, incident handlers, natural disasters and emergency responders, but, like other tools, they can only work if they are properly maintained.
Negligence in the maintenance of your two-way radio equipment will cause them to fail at critical moments. To ensure that you can keep in touch with the people and supporting assets you need, please remember the following walkie-talkie maintenance tips:
Regularly check and replace the battery-replacing the battery can not only ensure that the walkie-talkie has enough power, but also prevent the equipment from being damaged due to the leakage of the old battery or the corrosion of the wiring terminals of the equipment.
Keep the ventilation area clean-your walkie-talkie may have small vents to allow heat and air to escape from the internal structure of the device. This can prevent the electronic components of the device from overheating, so be sure to keep the vents away from obstacles such as fluff or other debris in your pockets.
Store your device safely-invest in a holster or small suitcase to help prevent damage to your two-way radio if they fall or make hard contact with other surfaces. In addition, when your radio is not in use, it is best to put it in a cabinet or other place, so as to ensure that the radio is not damaged.
Keep your device away from water-even if you have a waterproof walkie-talkie, avoid taking risks. Be sure to put the radio in a dry place and do not let them come into contact with water.
Dust and wipe down-Clean the equipment regularly to ensure that dust and dirt do not penetrate into the equipment. At the same time, wipe the device, especially around the buttons, to prevent dirt and debris from impairing its function.
Check the user’s manual-your two-way radio user manual will provide a lot of advice on how to take care of your equipment. Most even include troubleshooting guides to help you determine the cause of the problem when it occurs. It is definitely worth your time to review the materials.
