Fairmont Hotel, Shanghai Chooses Hytera PD365

Fairmont Hotel, Shanghai
The Fairmont Peace Hotel, which overlooks the Huangpu River in central Shanghai, boasts a history that overshadows any other hotel in the Far East. Restored and reopened in 2010, the Peace Hotel features 270 rooms and suites, offering guests an extraordinary place with unique architecture, expressive decor, magnificent artistry, and top class service in one great location.

Fairmont Hotel, Shanghai

… and The Fairmont Hotel has chosen the Hytera PD365 as their means of staff communications.

The Fairmont Peace Hotel discovered that on a day-to-day basis, staff were often liable to miss call instructions during peak periods, and forgot to trace the call back afterwards. This meant that responses were delayed and customers were not satisfied.

For this reason, the Hotel needed to be equipped with radios that were capable of sending preprogrammed text messages, and could be interconnected with the existing office platform to ensure timely, accurate and convenient call instruction delivery. The message had to real-time, with the ability to view immediately and keep a history of messages.

Furthermore, instructions needed to be delivered quietly (to avoid disturbing hotel customers) in order to upgrade service quality & efficiency. Knowing that Hytera’s DMR series products were powerful and adapted to solve the problems above, Fairmont Peace Hotel invited Hytera to develop a system.

The requirements were as follows:

  • A professional digital communications system complying with the global trend of improving management efficiency.
  • High voice quality when communicating within hotel premises, anywhere, anytime.
  • Can choose different voice call types, including All Call, Group Call and Private Call, according to service requirements.
  • Develop a gateway for wireless interconnection between the SMS communication system and the mail system of the Hotel’s internal office platform.

Enter Hytera PD365 Compact Digital Radio

Hytera PD365

The Hytera PD365 was the perfect solution for The Fairmont Hotel as it meets each and every requirement set out. By dividing the system into several groups, the hotel staff are able to communicate in their own talk groups, but the management can speak to all staff in an ‘all call’ when needed. Furthermore, the Hytera PD365 is able to send preprogrammed text messages and receive full text messages from larger radios such as the Hytera PD785 or a dispatch control room computer.

Hytera PD365 is aesthetically pleasing and lightweight this means that not only is the radio inconspicuous to guests, but also it’s less than 200g and therefore results in far less fatigue when in use.

Finally, the PD365 has the option of a wire-free desktop charger which allows reception staff to keep the PD365 fully charged – day and night.

Hytera PD365 Wireless Charger

All in all the Hytera PD365 is the ideal solution for the The Fairmont Hotel meeting every technical, logistical and aesthetic requirement.

Ofcom Simple Site Licence Gets 6 Repeater Channels

Ofcom Logo

Ofcom has recently announced 6 additional channels to the Ofcom Simple Site Licence meaning that the licence now covers the use of a repeater.

If you’d prefer, you can skip this article and go directly to purchase your Ofcom Simple Site Licence on our website – see the page on our website: Ofcom Simple Site Licence

You can read the exhaustive document here. This page summarises it and what this means for the Simple Site Licence.

Ofcom’s Simple Site Business Radio Licence is the licence most businesses use when they only require business radios to be used within their own building or grounds. Ofcom Simple Site Licence enables businesses to get up and running with business radios without the complexity of going through the Technically Assigned business radio licence process. An application for a Ofcom Simple Site Licence is more of a purchase than an application because almost no-one will ever be refused.

Ofcom Simple Site Licence allocates a number of general business radio frequencies (channels) which, as mentioned above, can only be used at the site which the licence is granted to. How far away from that site is debatable – but we’ve always advised no more than 800 yards outside the site.

Current Frequencies

  • HF – 26.23275-26.865MHz, Not exceeding 12.5kHz, Max ERP 2W
  • Low Band – 49.0-49.4875MHz, Not exceeding 12.5kHz, Max ERP 2W
  • High Band VHF 159.6375-164.2MHz, Not exceeding 12.5kHz, Max ERP 2W
  • UHF – 459.05-459.750MHz , Not exceeding 12.5kHz, Max ERP 2W

New Repeater Channels

The new repeater channels are as follows. All of these channels are 7MHz split, restricted to 2W ERP for both base and mobile, 12.5kHz and a base antenna height of 15M.

  • TX 451.5125 RX 458.5125 MHz
  • TX 451.525 RX 458.525 MHz
  • TX 451.5375 RX 458.5375 MHz
  • TX 451.5500 RX 458.5500 MHz
  • TX 451.5625 RX 458.5625 MHz
  • TX 451.775 RX 458.775 MHz

These new channels, in theory give you sufficient room for six repeater channels (12 voice channels in DMR digital mode).

The Bottom Line

The most basic site-based repeater systems can now be installed without waiting for Ofcom to do a survey for a technically assigned site licence. This means for rapid deployment of radio systems that would otherwise have potentially been subject to months of red tape.

Radiotronics can arrange your Ofcom Simple Site Licence – and you can even buy it on our website. See the page on our website: Ofcom Simple Site Licence

Top 10 Licence Free Walkie Talkies Q3 2017

Walkie Talkies, as opposed to professional-grade two way radios, are radios that are primarily used for outdoor adventure use such as hiking, camping, biking, motorcycling and fishing where easy to use short-range communications are required.

Tip: You can skip this guide and go directly to our leisure walkie talkies page on our website if you prefer.

All of the two way radios featured on this page are supplied in twin packs.

Here we’ve put together our handy guide to our top-10 outdoor adventure licence free walkie talkies for Q3 2017. This list goes from 10 to 1 with number 1 being the winner. That said, all of these radios have merits of their own – so ready the list below and make your own judgement.

10) Motorola TLKR T40 / T41 (Multiple Colours Available)

Motorola TLKR T40 & T41 Multi-Coloured Radios

At just 74g (without batteries) and 13cm tall (including antenna), the Motorola TLKR T40 (red) and Motorola T41 (blue, green, orange & pink) are some of the smallest portable two way radios on the market. They can be powered by 3x alkaline AAA batteries so are super convenient.

Just because these are number 10 on our list, don’t dismiss them – the reason they’re number 10 is that they don’t have rechargeable batteries included and don’t have an audio accessory (earpiece) audio jack socket. Other than that, the T40/T41 is still a very good quality two way radio.

Pros

  • Almost Always Supplied in Twin Packs
  • Super Small & Lightweight
  • Available In Multiple Colours
  • Very Cheap & Cost Effective
  • PMR446-Compliant (Works with other PMR446 radios)
  • Takes 3x standard alkaline AAA batteries

Cons

  • No Batteries Included
  • No Possibility of Rechargeable Batteries
  • No Audio Accessory / Earpiece Jack Socket

9) Cobra AM265

Cobra AM245

The Cobra AM265 is an entry-level radio. But, unusually for such an entry level radio, it is supplied with rechargeable batteries. In our test, the audio was very clear and the batteries lasted a good . What let’s this radio down is the lack of audio socket, so you can’t use an earpiece, throat mic or headset with this radio.

Pros

  • 3x AAA 600mAh Rechargeable Batteries Included Per Radio
  • Micro USB “Y” Charging Lead Included – Charge Using Any USB Socket
  • Key Lock Feature
  • PMR446-Compliant (Works with other PMR446 radios) *

* Only if they are not using CTCSS Privacy Tones

Cons

  • No CTCSS or DCS Tones
  • No Audio Accessory / Earpiece Jack Socket
  • No USB Mains Adapter Supplied
  • Not Weather Proof

8) Motorola TLKR T50

Motorola TLKR T50

The Motorola TLKR T50 is the middle of the TLKR range from Motorola. TLKR T50 is supplied with two NiMH battery packs and a mains charger that you plug into a UK power socket and then plug the other end Y-cable one plug into each radio.

Motorola TLKR T50 also has an audio accessory socket (standard single-pin 3.5mm jack plug) so you can easily plug in an earpiece, throat microphone or headset.

Pros

  • Supplied with Rechargeable Battery Packs, Mains “Y” Charger & Belt Clips
  • Ultra-Clear TLKR Series Audio
  • CTCSS Privacy Tones For Less Interference
  • PMR446-Compliant (Works with other PMR446 radios)
  • Splash Resistant

Cons

  • Belt Clips, Batteries & Y Charger Lead Supplied
  • CTCSS Privacy Tones For Less Interference
  • PMR446-Compliant (Works with other PMR446 radios)
  • Splash Resistant
  • Can Be Charged in a Vehicle (with a USB charge outlet)

Cons

6) Motorola TLKR T60

Motorola TLKR T60

Pros

  • Everything required to get started is supplied
  • Includes Belt clips, batteries, charger docking station & PSU
  • CTCSS Privacy Tones For Less Interference
  • PMR446-Compliant (Works with other PMR446 radios)
  • Splash Resistant

Cons

  • No vehicle charger included, but available separately. Or you could use an inverter.

5) Cobra AM845

Cobra AM845

The Cobra AM845 is as the AM645 above but adds in 10 call tones and a charging docking station. Still vehicle chargeable as the charging dock powered by a USB cable.

Pros

  • Supplied with Belt Clips, Batteries, Charger Dock & USB Cable
  • CTCSS Privacy Tones For Less Interference

  • No USB power adapter invluded, but can be used with any USB outlet, including a laptop USB socket

4) Motorola T92 H2O Twin Pack

Motorola T92 H2O

The Motorola T92 H2O Twin Pack is by far one of the best leisure radios. Supplied in a twin pack and totally water submersible, the T92 H20 is your ideal partner for a day at the beach, surfing or even kayaking, since the T92 H2O also floats so you won’t lose it in the water!

Pros

Cons

  • No mains charger – you’ll need to find a USB phone charger or USB outlet when not in the car

3) Motorola T80

Motorola TLKR T80

Motorola T80 is almost exactly the same as the Motorola T80-Extreme, but without the carry case and earpieces, and the battery cover is not IP-rated. But if you want the quality of the T80 for daily use and don’t need the carry case, this is the radio for you.

Pros

  • Belt Clips, Batteries & USB Charger + Dock Included
  • CTCSS Privacy Tones For Less Interference
  • PMR446-Compliant (Works with other PMR446 radios)
  • Strong Build Quality
  • Long Range

Cons

  • Battery Cover is not IP rated / weather proof, but still drip resistant
  • No Vehicle Charger Included – But available separately

2) Cobra MA1035 Floating Radio

Cobra AM1035

The Cobra AM1035 gets our runner up position on our Q2 2017 walkie talkie list due to it’s great value for money and it’s floating feature. This out ranks the T92 H2O based on price alone.

Pros

  • Belt Clips, Batteries & USB Charger + Dock Included
  • CTCSS Privacy Tones For Less Interference
  • PMR446-Compliant (Works with other PMR446 radios)
  • IPX7 Waterproof
  • VibrAlert – The Radio Vibrates When A Call Comes Through
  • Built-in LED flashlight

Cons

  • Charger unstable in a moving vehicle. Fine for stationary vehicles

1) Motorola T80 Extreme

Motorola TLKR T80 Extreme

The Motorola TLKR T80-Extreme remains our number 1 based on value for money and features. The Motorola TLKR T80-Extreme is supplied in either twin packs or quad packs, is supplied with a carry case, batteries, docking station charger, belt clips and earpieces! There is no better value walkie talkie kit than the Motorola TLKR T80-Extreme.

  • CTCSS Privacy Tones For Less Interference
  • PMR446-Compliant (Works with other PMR446 radios)
  • Call Feature & Roger Beep

Cons

  • None

One final note on the T80-Extreme: If anything, it could also include a vehicle cigar lighter adapter. But a cigarette lighter adapter is available separately if you need to charge them on the go.

One More?…

The one that’s not included in this list, but is definitely worth a mention, is the Motorola T81-Hunter. The reason it’s not included is that it’s not a twin pack.

Vertex Standard EVX-531 EVX-534 & EVX-539 Service & Refurbishment Information

Vertex Standard VX-241 Servicing GuideThis article serves as a guide to what you will need in order to perform a full service and alignment on the Vertex Standard EVX-531, Vertex Standard EVX-534Vertex Standard EVX-539.

Vertex Standard EVX-534 & EVX-539 Gotcha

There’s a very but significant gotcha with the programming & aligment software on the EVX-530 series which applies to the EVX-534 and EVX-539. 1/2 way through the life of the Vertex Standard EVX-534 and EVX-539, these two radios had a feature-lift where Vertex Standard changed the display from a LED 14-segment display to an LCD dot-matrix display. For the old 14-segment display you’ll need the CE-142 programming software but for the LCD-enhanced display models, you’ll need the CE-151 programming software. This does not apply to the EVX-531. The EVX-531 requires the CE-142 programming software only as there’s ever been one version of the no-keypad EVX-531 model.

What’s Needed For A Service

At Radiotronics, we offer everything you’ll need to do a full service of the Vertex Standard EVX-530 series including the service manual, programming software, radio interface box and programming cable.

Refurbishment Parts Required

Whilst you’re servicing the radios it’s usually good practice to give the radio an overhaul by changing the outer housing, knobs, accessory cover and antenna tube. Here’s a list of what you’ll need to refurbish these two-way radios.
