To help point you in the right direction, we've assembled this list of five ways to really get your money's worth from any set of two way radios.

3. Let Everyone Know it's Time to Eat

Whether you're throwing a major party or just trying to assemble the family for a sit-down meal, getting everyone in the same place at the same time can end up being something of a challenge. With a set of two way radios, like the Motorola TLKR T80 Extreme it becomes a breeze to let everyone know that the meal is about to be served so they can all gather round the dining table to share some family time and delicious food.

4. Know Whats Up with the Kids and the Kitchen

We can't be in multiple places at the same time, but fortunately our technology can! If you have a lot on your plate at once, it can be easy to be stressed out as you move constantly around to check on multiple things. But with the ability to communicate with multiple locations at the press of a button, you might find your load lightened a little.

5. Solve Problems Faster and Easier

When the breaker blows a fuse, or the satellite dish needs adjusting, or a plumbing problem arises, one of the most annoying and time-consuming parts of the process can be going from one location to another back and forth to see if adjustments have fixed the problem. If you have some two-way radios handy, this process can be dramatically simplified with some good communication.


More exciting than any of these possibilities are the unique and innovative ways you can put your own set of 2 way radios to use! The sky is the limit when you use your imagination.
