Things Have Changed

Friday, December 16th, 2016

Hi Friends,

Digital radios have only been around a few years. Most of the radios in use today are still analog radios.

Analog radios capture the physical aspects of sound and transmits this sound to other radios.

Digital radios convert the physical aspects of sound into a stream of data.

When digital radios were first introduced they were substantially more expensive….like 3 or 4 times mores expensive than analog radios. An analog radio that costs $200 would cost as much as $800 in digital format.

For most radio users, digital only offers a modest increase in range however the sound quality is crystal clear. And the sound quality stays crystal clear even when distance or interference causes a regular analog radio to lose its signal or become filled with static.

I never felt the additional cost was worth the modest increase in distance or the improved sound quality. After all we are talking about Louie in the shop talking to Mike  in shipping not Simon and Garfunkel singing Bridge Over Troubled Waters.

Presto. Change-o. I have changed my mind. Introducing the Tekk Mini Digital. This is the smallest DMR radio available today. It is only 3 inches tall, 2 inched wide, 1 inch thick and weighs only 5 ounces.

The audio on this radio is superb and is perfect for coaching, churches, schools, restaurants, retail and dental offices. The new digital radios will work with your old analog radios.

Best of all at only $229 this radio cost the same as a similarly equipped analog radio. At the same price I love these radios. I have become a digital aficionado. If you order before the end of the year we will include one free radio when you buy 5 radios.

New Appliances

Hi Friend,

We bought new kitchen appliances last year. New refrigerator, microwave, washer dryer, stove and new dish washer.

The new refrigerator has a built in water filter for making ice and dispensing drinking water. The new refrigerator is a real game changer for us. Our old refrigerator dispensed water but there was no filter… just tap water dispensed through the refrigerator.

We have been hauling bottled water from the grocery for years. Now whether day or night we just pull up to the refrigerator and are delighted to find sparkling clear drink water.

The new dish washer is another story. I’ll be honest with you… I have no idea how a dish washer works or what goes on inside the washer after I push the start button.

The Princess knows. She can hear a malfunction from three rooms away.

After dinner I pack up the dishwasher and hit the start button. The machine makes some gurgling noises and by the time I get to my recliner the washer switches to a swishing sound.

I never hear it but the ever alert Princess discerns a small ping and is able to identify it as a teaspoon misaligned or a plate in the wrong position. I am dispatched to correct malfunction.

I wipe the steam from my glasses after opening the washer door and peer inside. I don’t see anything wrong. I never see anything wrong. I carefully close the door and restart the wash cycle. The errant noise immediately returns. I repeat this process several times before the Princess intervenes and points out the problem.

My question is, “Why was I dispatched to correct the problem in the first place?”

Problem solving should be apportioned to the person most talented for the specific issue. The Princess should be in charge of all mechanical issues emanating from the kitchen or laundry room and I should be assigned to operating our TV remote control.

Let us solve your 2 way radio problems. We can help you find the best 2 way radios and walkie talkies for your budget and specific application. Doing business with 2 Way Radio Express is easy.
