Communications for professionals.

Communicating when working is essential, effective communication is necessary to convey information, ideas, and expectations clearly and accurately. Without clear communication, misunderstandings can arise, leading to mistakes, delays, and even conflicts that can harm productivity and morale.

“Since 2016 we have benefited tremendously from our partnership with Swatcom, using their Multicom system in international teams matches; allowing team members to communicate wirelessly and in full duplex more effectively than ever before. The Swatcom Active8 headsets are now widely used by team members in individual and team competition and are preferred for their excellent hearing protection and exceptional comfort, thanks to their innovative gel seals.”

Variations of communication.

Understanding the variations of communication is important as it allows individuals and organizations to choose the most appropriate communication method for the situation at hand.

Full-Duplex

Full-duplex communication is a communication system that allows for two-way communication between two or more parties, where each party can send and receive information simultaneously. In other words, full-duplex communication enables both parties to communicate in real-time, with the ability to send and receive data at the same time.

Half-Duplex

Half-duplex communication is a communication system that allows for two-way communication between two or more parties, but only one party can transmit data at a time. In other words, half-duplex communication enables both parties to send and receive information, but not at the same time, an example of half-duplex communication is a walkie-talkie

Simplex

Simplex communication is a one-way communication system where information is transmitted from one device to another, but the receiving device cannot send information back to the transmitting device. In other words, simplex communication is a unidirectional form of communication, where the communication is one-way only.

    Duplex communication allows for both parties to clearly understand each other’s messages, questions, and concerns, as well as respond in real-time.

    Communication is critical when working.

    It is important for your team to use duplex communication when working together for several reasons:

    • Clarity: Duplex communication allows for both parties to clearly understand each other’s messages, questions, and concerns, as well as respond in real-time. This reduces the chances of misunderstandings and ensures that everyone is on the same page.

    Two-way radio accessories are additional devices or tools that can be used with a two-way radio to enhance its functionality, convenience, and efficiency. Some common two-way radio accessories include:

    RSM's

    “RSMS” typically stands for “Remote Speaker Microphone.” An RSM is a type of accessory used with two-way radios that allows for more effective communication in noisy or hazardous environments.

    Covert Kits

    Full covert and semi covert kits used with two-way radios are typically specialized accessories that allow for discreet communication between individuals without drawing attention to themselves, 

    Throat Mic's

    Throat microphones use a sensitive vibration sensor that picks up the user’s vocal vibrations directly from their throat, which can be particularly useful in noisy or windy environments.

    PTT's

    PTT’s are accessories that are used with two-way radios to activate the Push-to-Talk function. They allow the user to communicate with the radio without having to hold the radio or the microphone button.

    Headsets

    Headset accessories are used with two-way radios that allow for hands-free communication. They consist of a headset that is worn on the user’s head and typically includes speakers and a microphone for transmitting.

    Chargers

    Two-way radio chargers are devices that are used to charge the batteries of two-way radios. Two-way radio chargers are important accessories for keeping two-way radios operational and ready to use.
