Analogue two-way radios have been used for business applications as far back as 1933, and they were originally placed into service by the U.S. military 20 years before then.


Today, two-way radio technology is so widespread, it has become nearly as common as a household appliance. This time-saving communications tool has now become a favorite choice for commercial, industrial, military, and even personal use.


The history of the two-way radio is long and well defined, but the question still stands as to whether the analogue radio is strong enough to offset the advantages of the feature-rich digital devices that are growing in popularity.

Because the analog two-way radio has been around for as long as it has, the ceiling of innovation has been reached. But with the emergence of the digital platform, a new era of radio technology has now arrived. From varying price points and the distinction in sound quality, both technologies have significant differences beyond just their signal types. And even though it offers numerous advantages, the digital radio will not completely replace its analogue sibling. The traditional analogue radio still has the upper hand for
many applications.


Decide for yourself as you discover where the two-way radio has been, its possibilities for the future, and whether analogue or digital technology best suits your needs.
