Best walkie talkie for mountains

One of the main factors is strength and reliability. Still, falls are an integral part of alpine skiing, especially in the early stages. In addition, it is after fall and injury that a skier has to use a walkie-talkie to call for help. It will be inappropriate if the radio suddenly fails. Of course, protection from moisture should also be included – snow melts and may disable your gadget.

For example, walkie-talkies are very popular with airsoft players – they are a great opportunity to coordinate actions to demonstrate maximum efficiency in battle. They can also be a good choice for builders, security guards, drivers, and many other people. But you have to be careful about choosing a suitable walkie-talkie.

Baigish-6U Night vision device

The principle of operation of the device is based on the amplification of weak natural night light (moon, starry sky) by an electron-optical converter. Baigish-6U is a II generation night-vision device and is equipped with two eyepieces that converge into one optical axis. The device has one lens and one electron-optical converter. Passing through them, the beam of light bifurcates and enters both monoculars. So we get a stereoscopic image as if we were looking at binoculars. The image is more realistic, and the eyes are less tired.

Ski walkie-talkies: how to choose the best for skiing

Why using a mobile phone is not the best idea when you go skiing in the mountains? Firstly, the cellular coverage in the mountains can be intermittent and at the right time, you can be left without communication. Mountains are a zone of increased danger and sometimes the ability to connect other people can be a matter of health. Secondly, phones quickly discharge, especially when it’s cold. Walkie-talkies do not consume charge so quickly.

LPD channels

The LPD (Low Power Device) channels are dedicated for civilian communication within the UHF frequencies, as much as PMR446, another free band. LPD channels are located in the frequency range 433.075–434.775 MHz and include 69 channels with a step of 25 kHz. You can see them in the table below.

PMR 446 channels

PMR (Personal Mobile Radio) – is a standard for unlicensed radio communications, used in Europe, but prohibited in the United States and Canada. Depending on the country, the number of channels and terms of use may vary. This communication standard includes 8 channels with a step of 12.5 kHz, in the range 446.00625–446.09375 MHz

How does walkie talkie work

What does any modern walkie-talkie consist of? A receiver of the radio station is responsible for converting radio frequency signals into acoustic vibrations the human ear is accustomed to detecting. First, the received signal is filtered out and increased, then there is a decrease in frequency and the signal is transferred to a special decoder, which selects the information component from the entire stream. Then there is another amplification and outputting of already processed audio data to the speaker… How do walkie-talkies work on different frequencies?

How to talk on a walkie talkie

Picking up a two-way radio for the first time? it’s quite tricky to figure out how to talk through this device. I hope you purchased a walkie-talkie that does not require a license to use, or you already have this permission. Otherwise, men in black may knock on your door and report that you have problems! I’m joking, but this is true: if you use the wrong frequency without a license, you could get a large fine. Don’t want to lose a large amount of money? I would not want to either.

Telescope aperture comparison & Focal length

Every telescope can be chosen on the basis of two criteria because one of the main characters that will be taken into account is either aperture or focal length. Aperture in a telescope is the objective length diameter when it is referred to a refracting telescope or the primary mirror when it is referred to reflecting telescope. So, if you switch to greater focal length, it is clearly better to observe remote objects in space such as the Moon, planets, etc. or if you require better observation of DSO (deep space objects) such as galaxies getting a device with greater aperture figures is better.
