How two way radios from Walkie-Talkies literally proved a life saver & enabled us to run our group ski holiday, adding so much fun in the process!

In February a group of like-minded chaps from Beaconsfield Squash Club embarked on the annual ski holiday.  This year we increased the number from 8 to 12, a big ask in terms of organisation creating a situation one member termed as attempting to herd cats!  This is where our two way radios come into their own.  Each member of the group was handed a Pronto digital licensed free radio for their personal communications and given instructions on how to use them. 

We flew to Geneva and took our onward transfers to Meribel Mottaret, two minibuses on the transfer and the radios allowed us to be in constant contact on the two hour plus journey to the mountains.  On arrival at the hotel strict instructions for the following day were issued in true military fashion, including which channel to be tuned into first thing in the morning to allow for the seamless collection of 12 sets of skis and passes etc. The Pronto radios proved faultless!

b) TDMA stands for Time Division Multiple Access.

One of the big advantages of this is users can boost two channels using this protocol with a single two way radio Repeater or Talkthrough
