The VHF spectrum is used across the world in two way radio systems for commercial, industrial, public safety, and military purposes. A VHF Radio is the perfect choice for an organization that primarily operates in an outdoor environment with clear, or flat terrain. VHF radios use a lower frequency which means it has a physically larger radio wave than the UHF band. This allows the signal to travel longer distances and traverse an outdoor environment.
The VHF band is shared among many users and that is why it needs to be governed by the FCC and a license is typically required to use this frequency. This can involve frequency coordination so that you are assigned a frequency that will be less registered for use in your area by other organizations in order to help reduce interference.
This Two Way Radio holds an IP54 rating which is good but what does it mean? The IP in the code stands for Ingress Protection, this will typically be followed by two numerical digits. The first of the two digits run on a scale from 0-6 which signifies the level of protection against solid foreign objects. "The IP5" rating says that this unit is protected down to a dust level. The second digit runs on a scale from 0-8 and signifies the level of liquid protection. The "IP54" rating says that this unit not only is protected from dust but also from splashing water.
The IP54 rating is the most common among two way radios because it will protect the equipment from normal wear and tear scenarios such as operating in a dusty construction site or using the radio in the rain. If you are looking to step up to the next level water protection for your equipment look for "IP57 Rated" which offers water submersion protection.
