Two-way radio lingo and the NATO Alphabet were created to quickly and effectively communicate commonly used phrases, easy to misunderstand words, and spell words effortlessly over two-way radios.
Two-way radios have been around for more than a century but over time the technological advancements have made them into what we know and love.
Clear communication over two-way radios is important and because of this, fundamental rules were created. While your company might not be using the NATO alphabet or two-way radio language, such as “10-4”, “Over”, and “Copy That”; it is beneficial to know some of the etiquette and techniques to provide everyone with the best two-way radio experience.
Having an issue with your two-way radios, especially if you just recently purchased them, is frustrating. However, the solution might be easier (and less expensive) than you think.
