WASHINGTON - Aug. 7, 2014 - PRLog -- News reports and incidents regarding issues with reliance on cellphones for event, incident or other monitoring and operations activities requiring mobile communications continues to surface. In this context, those responsible for finding, purchasing and using critical hand-held communications devices are maintaining their use of advanced hand-held radios - including the extremely popular and durable Motorola CP200 handheld radio.

National Two-Way Radios, a leading provider of critical Motorola mobile hand-held radio technologies and services (at http://www.nationaltwowayradio.com/index.php), provides current, key evidence for two-way radios vs. cellphones as a critical core or backup component for business and mission operations in all challenging environments.

This particular hand-held two-way radio, the Motorola CP200 ( http://www.nationaltwowayradio.com/store/cp200.html ), is a long-time favorite of emergency departments, schools, corporate security, outdoor businesses and entertainment venues, marinas, golf courses, ski resorts - anywhere and everywhere reliable, safe, durable and well-tested direct communications across and between  Land Mobile Radio (LMR) networks and devices. National Two-Way Radio is a trusted, reliable and well-known partner for Motorola CP200 buyers and users - providing two-way radio technologies and support from the Washington DC-Maryland area for many years.

At this recent fair event (http://www.abc17news.com/news/att-wireless-issues-for-jay... ), for example, wireless services became problematic during the busiest time with the largest crowds - and both fair volunteer staff and the local Sheriff's department turned to hand-held radios and a mobile command center to maintain situational awareness, operational communications, and emergency monitoring.

Handheld, two-way radios are fundamentally recognized as a more disaster-proof, safer, reliable and useful tool in all applications where critical communications are a requirement, and safe use is a critical part of the context.  The Miami Herald recently reported ( <a href="http://www.miamiherald.com/2014/07/28/4259121/hassan-signs-handheld-cellphone.html ), for example, that a recent ban on handheld cellphones while driving in New Hampshire does not include the use of two-way radios, instrumental to the operations and safety of many industries and businesses - commercial, law-enforcement and other government. This exception appears common to all cellphone-while-driving bans - two-way radios are fully and appropriately allowed.

Organizations have different communications requirements based on the environments their employees and partners operate within.   These include very noisy environments, outdoor assignments in both heat and cold, or in dangerous environments that intrinsically require  devices that are safe to operate.  Different use cases and operation scenarios may require devices that can be used with gloves, include bright displays or operate hands free.  Most hand-held two-way radios designed for specific use cases, with their accessories, can meet all of these needs from extra loud speakers, noise-canceling microphones to glove friendly ergonomics, extreme temperature ratings, and ruggedized components such as the "proven tough" Motorola two-way radio batteries ( http://www.motorolasolutions.com/web/Business/Products/Accessories/Two-way%20Radio%20Accessories/Batteries/IMPRES/see_test_results_drop.pdf ).

While cellphones benefit from smaller form-factors and "smart phone" applications, two-way radios necessarily tend to be a bit larger and bulkier - in order to accommodate higher power output levels for maximum "talk-in" coverage range. An interesting consequence of a higher power output level is that it also increases the reliability of a feature found in two-way radio that is not available in cellular – direct mode operation or repeater talk-around.

As described at this Motorola solution community ( http://communities.motorolasolutions.com/community/north_america/ccw14/blog/2014/05/18/why-are-portable-two-way-radios-larger-than-cell-phones ), two-way radio systems have the "direct mode" feature as a last resort form of communications in case the portable radios lose connectivity with the infrastructure. This allows the users to communicate directly with each other without the use of the infrastructure.  For industrial and government users talking in direct mode...having some limited communications is better than none at all.  Higher power output levels increases the reliability of the communications between the radios since the higher power level overcomes the signal path loss better in many environments.

Take advantage of the long-tested, well-known features of this critical communications technology today - for current operational use, as well as backup and disaster operations and recovery scenarios, when cellphone use is likely to be unreliable or can't meet operational requirements. National Two-Way Radio is currently offering hand-held radios including the Motorola CP200 and accessories for the absolute lowest pricing online, free programming for life, and essential, experienced consumer use guidance and technical support.  Consider and evaluate a handheld two-way radio right now, before your local or regional cellular network becomes unresponsive or otherwise inaccessible.
