Canoe centre ‘want to canoe’ recently purchased two-way radios from SFL Mobile Radio to help co-ordinate its activities along the River Wye.
The company who offer canoe hire and guided adventure sessions bought three Motorola DP1400 radios.
“We are a very busy canoe centre,” said want to canoe partner Aubrey Fry. “We offer canoe hire from two hours to five days, which includes river guiding as well as guided trips.”
“The radios are great – really useful. They allow communications between the different river guiding teams.”
He explains how large groups have to be split into smaller sub groups on the river and the radios now allow groups to keep in touch a lot easier.
“And from a safety perspective it allows communications back to us in the office,” he continued.
Previously the guides were reliant on mobile phones, which don’t have a signal at certain points along the river. Aubrey remarked: “I honestly can’t believe we haven’t had radios before now!”
He went on to say that eventually every single member of the team will have their own radio.
The DP1400 portable two-way radio combines the best of two-way radio functionality with the latest analogue and digital technology.
Ideal for everyday use, the DP1400 provides a simple, reliable, cost-effective communication solution to help work colleagues connect, coordinate and collaborate.
