Handheld UHF Analog / Digital Radios Sets

Ultra High Frequency (UHF) radios, also known as walkie-talkies, are 2-way transceivers that emit shorter wavelengths and more powerful frequencies (136 – 174 MHz) that can easily travel a distance of up to 5 km, depending on the terrain.

For a relatively large marine vessel, like a cargo ship or tanker, it is important to have a reliable internal communication system where the captain is able to communicate with the crew and vice versa. A UHF radio set is ideal because it will not interfere with the existing marine VHF frequencies used and, at the same time, allow communication privacy if required. At Tecomart, we offer handheld radio sets for sale from reputable global brands such as Motorola and ICOM

Components of Handheld UHF Analog / Digital Radios Sets

  • Antenna: Transmits and receives radio signals to and from the radio set.
  • Microphone: Allows the user to transmit audio through the radio set.
  • Speaker: Enables the user to hear audio received by the radio set.
  • Keypad: Used for dialling in frequencies, adjusting settings, and making other inputs.
  • Display Screen: Shows information such as channel, battery status, and signal strength.
  • Belt Clip: Attaches the radio set to the user’s belt for easy access.
  • Earpiece: Provides private listening for the user.
  • Programming Cable: Used to programme the radio set with specific frequencies and settings.

Finding the Right Handheld UHF Analog / Digital Radios Set

Whether you’re a seasoned mariner or just getting started, it’s important to choose the right UHF radio set for your needs. Consider the following:

1. Power

A general rule of thumb is that for every 1 watt of power, there is 1 mile of coverage. The higher the range, the higher the wattage needed. It is recommended to get a higher-powered radio like the APX4500 Single-Band P25 Mobile Radio – Enhanced. With its level of power that provides a strong and reliable signal for clear communication over a wide area, it clears obstructions and harsh weather conditions at sea that will lower the amount of coverage.

2. Waterproof

If you’re planning to use your UHF radio set out on the deck, it is important to choose a waterproof walkie talkie so you will always have clear communications, even during wet and windy conditions. Look for IP-rated UHF radio sets, such as the ICOM IC-F4003 or the Motorola XiR P3688. The first digit of the IP rating represents dust protection, while the second digit represents waterproofing. Higher numbers represent better protection in both cases.

3. Channels

A multi-channel UHF handheld radio system is a great way to improve communication on your marine vessel. By having multiple channels available, like the IC-F4230DS, which has up to 128 memory channels with 8 zones, you can ensure that everyone has the ability to communicate effectively without interference. A multi-channel walkie-talkie system can also ensure that all communications will be kept confidential, providing enhanced security for your vessel.

4. Battery life

A longer battery life means longer talktime, and a handheld radio set such as the IC-F4003 helps you stay connected to your crew and other vessels in times of need. In addition, the long battery life of the IC-F4003 makes it suitable for extended use in a variety of applications, such as outdoor recreation, construction, and security.

Frequently Asked Questions About Handheld Radios

UHF (Ultra High Frequency) radios are communication devices that operate on the UHF frequency band and are used for short-range communications, such as in security, and public safety organisations. They are often used as a compact and portable alternative to traditional two-way radios.

Handheld radios, also known as walkie-talkies, use a built-in antenna for efficient two-way communication. The user speaks into the microphone, triggering the radio to convert the audio into a signal, which is then transmitted. The receiver then converts the incoming signal back into audio for the user to hear.
