UHF radios are the best choice for urban environments where steel and concrete obstructions exist. VHF radios are best suited for non-urban environments with open space.
Analog is real-time voice (no delay); Digital, while crystal clear voice sound, can have a very slight delay in transmission.
All business and commercial radios require an FCC license except the DLR & DTR Series, TLK 100 and 1 RM radio model: RMM2050 - which operates on MURS frequencies.
Analog UHF will talk with any Analog UHF radio (programming to match may be required). Similarly, Analog VHF will talk with all Analog VHF. Same rules apply to digital radios except for proprietary digital DLR and DTR Series – they will only integrate with each other. Analog channels will not talk with digital channels. Some radios can be programmed to talk in both digital and analog (example: CP200D can talk with EVXS24 on digital channels and also be programmed on separate channels to talk with an analog radio such as an RM or RD Series).
