Network radio

Network radio such at the two models shown below have become very popular over the past year in the UK. Operators are using the communications apps such as Zello, echolink, teamspeak & broadnet. There are many channels on zello that both licenced and unlicenced operators use together ''Radio Network'' & ''Network Radio'' being the two most popular at time of writing, there's even a section in the ''Radio user'' magazine dedicated to network radio now. I find using echolink & zello to be very good on them as these apps tent to be heavy on a mobile phone battery but the T320 has a very good capacity one.
You can expect to pay £170 for T320 and £140 for TM-7 new at this time.

The devices can take a cellular sim card with data plan or you can tether from your home broadband or from your mobile phone when your out mobile. The T320 handie is a phone too with dual sim card slots & a micro sd card slot, but the screen is very small and not very user friendly but hopefully over time this will be improved.
