4 Reasons Why PMR446 Is In High Demand

We’re seeing a huge increase in the number of enquirers for PMR446 radios, and it’s no wonder why.
With so many customer-facing retail outlets suddenly battling for survival in a the new “social distancing” era, the retail industry needs all the help it can get.


Between us, we’ve been preaching the benefits of two-way radio communications for efficiency, safety and customer experience for a long time.
