Two Way Radios in Sport

Two-way radios are essential in the world of sports. They play a crucial role in ensuring effective communication between team members, Managers, and officials. Whether it's a game of football, Motor Racing, cycling or any other sport, clear and instantaneous communication is vital for success.

One of the main advantages of using two-way radios in sport is that they allow for quick and efficient communication, even in noisy and crowded environments. Staff can easily relay instructions to their players/riders/drivers, ensuring that everyone is on the same page and working towards the same goal.

Another benefit of using two-way radios is that they help improve safety on the field/track. In case of an emergency or injury, team members can quickly call for medical assistance or alert officials. This can potentially save lives and ensure prompt medical attention.

Two-way radios also enhance the overall coordination and teamwork among Drivers in Formula racing. They enable real-time communication, allowing drivers and staff to strategise, make quick decisions, and adapt to changing situations on the Track. This can give a team a competitive edge and increase their chances of success.

Fun Fact: Kenwood Radios with NXDN Technology are the preferred choice for communication in Formula 1 pit lanes, despite the branded headsets. This is because they are able to transmit and receive voice much faster than DMR Radio.

Moreover, two-way radios are designed to be durable and reliable, making them suitable for use in the demanding environment of sports. They are built to withstand rough handling, extreme weather conditions, and long hours of use.

In conclusion, two-way radios are indispensable tools in the world of sports. They facilitate effective communication, enhance safety, improve coordination, and contribute to the overall success of a team. Investing in quality two-way radios can greatly benefit sports teams of all levels.

Case Study

Radio-Shop Proud to Support Cycle GB Charity Bike Ride

In 2016 a team of 20 riders took on the challenge of cycling 540 miles from Glasgow to Kent. The aim of the ride was to raise as much sponsorship and awareness possible for the Benenden Charitable Trust and SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health) - you can find out more about these charities further down the page.

The riders consisted of staff from Benenden in York and Keegan & Pennykid in Edinburgh and they split into two teams:

The first team rode 240 miles over 3 days - Glasgow > Longtown > Durham > York.

Cycle GB Team One - Radio-Shop

The second team then took over and rode 300 miles over 4 days - York > Lincoln > Peterborough > Cheshunt > Benenden.

Cycle GB Team Two - Radio-Shop

When we heard that Benenden were organising this event we wanted to help out, we offered to loan the team a number of Hytera PD365 Digital Two Way Radios. Both the riders and the support team in cars used the radios to keep in constant contact with each other.

These radios were the perfect size for the riders to put them in the pockets of their jackets and with the Hytera PTT earpieces we also provided, it meant that they were much easier to use as the riders didn't have to take the radios out of their pockets to use, they simply needed to press the button on the microphone of their earpiece.

Here's Thom Craigen, organiser of the event, using one of the Hytera PD365 Two Way Radios.

The team have raised an incredible £27,000 to be split between the Benenden Charitable Trust and SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health). Here is some information on these charities:
