Eurofins Product Testing - Private & Land Mobile Radio

Sidebar Image

Devices pooled as Private Mobile Radios (PMR) and Land Mobile Radio (LMR) offer a two-way communication service that permits users to talk directly over a short distance or on a simple local system or even nation-wide complex system, without incurring any costs on the calls made - no matter how many or for how long.

Typical examples are radios for outdoor activities or the radio systems used by police forces and fire brigades.

Key features of professional mobile radio systems include:

  • point to multi-point communications (as opposed to cell phones which are point to point communications)
  • push to talk, release to listen - a single button press opens communication on a radio frequency channel
  • large coverage areas
  • closed user groups
  • direct connection without system
  • use of VHF- or UHF-frequency bands
