Hello, everyone. My nay is Hunter and I am new to the forum. I have bought some 2-way radios for a job my company is working on and wanted to get some help since I know very little about 2-way radios. We are a small construction company and neede a way for my guys to communicate while they are working on the side of the road. I need help figuring out what frequency I should use. Is there a better frequency to use that will give me further range or clarity? What frequencies am I not allowed to use? Here are the specs on the radios.
High / Low Power Settings (4W/1W) Programmable Amateur Radio; Frequency Range: 65-108 MHz (Only commercial FM radio reception) VHF: 136-174 MHz(Rx/Tx). UHF: 400-520 MHz(Rx/Tx)
1500mAh Battery; Broadband (Wide) 25khz / Narrowband (Narrow) 12.5khz Selectable. Monitor two different frequencies (even on different bands (VHF/UHF)) and the radio will monitor both frequencies giving priority to the first station to receive an incoming call
