What is the talk distance of the radio equipment?
Two-way radio rental coverage using a UHF 4 watt radio is up to about one mile outdoors. Indoor coverage varies based on construction of the building where the equipment is being used. Large convention centers are normally covered 80% or higher. In hotel and building applications, at least multiple floors are covered, usually up to about 15 stories above ground level. Larger coverage areas are possible with Sprint Nextel iDEN walkie talkies. The Nextel system is great for coast to coast communications as long as there is sufficient signal strength to the cell site towers. Many hotels and convention centers are wired up to boost Nextel signals. If you have specific coverage questions or need a Los Angeles Nextel rental, please call 1-888-817-2346. We have experience in many different venues throughout the United States; chances are we are familiar with your specific event location.
How long do the batteries last?
On average?Two Way radio and Nextel batteries last about 12-14 hours with standard usage. We only rent out ultra high capacity batteries with our equipment.
Do I need a FCC license to rent from you?
No. We have National FCC frequencies that are programmed into your radios. Additionally we can program/match radios to your frequencies should you request that option.
What is a Repeater?
A repeater is installed in a fixed location with the intent of coverage enhancement. Multi-story buildings are covered more thoroughly and dead spots are removed. The building's construction, number of floors, and the presence of steel and concrete determine range. Whether you need a San Diego walkie talkie rental or a rental in your area, we can deliver your equipment straight to your location.
What is the difference between Nextel Direct Connect and Group Connect service?

With Group Connect, you can set up multiple talk groups and connect to as few as three people at once or as many as 100 people at once just by the push of a button. Group Talk is very similar in use and function to traditional walkie talkie setups, whether it is a San Diego two way radio rental or one is your area. You can get the message out to a large group of people in many different locations all at the same time.
