It takes no small amount of talent and organizational wizardry to be a successful event planner. It is a gift, and one that not everyone on your team shares. This means that they aren’t going to intuitively do things the way you would. They need instruction, guidance, and communication during event setup, throughout the event, and during the teardown process. Otherwise, key details get missed.
Push-to-talk two-way radios can be instrumental in helping you communicate with your team, but which radios are the best push to talk two-way radios for modern event planners? Keep these ideas in mind as you compare your options in search of the best push-to-talk two-way radio to meet your event planning needs.
Size and Weight Matter
While some jobs want hale, hardy, and rather large radios to meet their demands, event planners do better with something sleeker, more compact, and that weighs considerably less. You will likely be carrying around the radio for long hours on the day of the event and will need it to be lightweight enough to be of no concern. Some push to talk two-way radios, like the PTT-84G, weigh as little as 10 ounces.
Discretion is the Better Part of Valor
You also need your radio, microphone, and headset to be discrete. It’s one thing to be having meaningful conversations with members of your team about possible problems with the events. It’s something else for everyone around you to hear the discussion. Look for radios that offer comfortable, useful, and discrete communications options.
All the Right Accessories
You don’t want your radio use, or the accessories associated with it to be the talk of the event. You want to blend in as much as possible. This means you’ll need accessories, like the PTT-84G Surveillance Headset that features a discrete earpiece along with a PTT mic on a cable.
Some events have your staff on the job for long hours. Much longer than the anticipated eight-hours most batteries can handle before giving up the ghost. The best push-to-talk two-way radios for your event will have batteries that last up to 12 hours or have backup batteries to make replacements on the fly during the event.
