The Development of Digital Two Way Communication

Radio communication dates back to the early 20th century when two way signals were wirelessly transmitted across the Atlantic Ocean. The technology; first used on ships; enabled those at sea to communicate with contacts on land. By 1912 all ships were carrying transmitters and receivers. Ten years later, the Australian police began using two way radios in place of telephone boxes. The first sets were quite large; taking up the entire back seat of a patrol car.

Over time, two way radios became more compact, powerful and easy to use. They were used on aircrafts, and heavily used in World War II. At the time, all signals operated on the same frequency. Only one station could transmit at a time, while others listened. Despite these obstacles, simultaneous transmission and reception occurred by using equipment tuned to different frequencies. During the war, transmissions were made in Morse code.

Today, two way communication is used in all facets of life. Digital communication is used in the military, in business, in hospital systems, colleges, manufacturers and distributors to name a few. Todays analog two way radios typically have 14 channels, while DMR offers two voice parts per channel which allows simultaneous transmissions to occur. Digital trunking allows radio channels to be used by multiple user groups with excellent background noise cancellation.

Mobile and stationary digital communication are available, and hand held devices are small, rugged, and durable. They are usable in high risk environments such as oil rigs and factories. They are an essential tool in providing safety at large sporting events, festivals or political gatherings. They are also safe and usable in natural disasters and emergency situations.
