TBH, it wasn’t to do with the look or feel. I realise now after the advice through the comments and more research that its HAM we’d need to go with if we went ahead. Atm we’ve just set up a series of what to do if pre-defined processes/responses to certain situations.

Thanks :D

Hi there, well HF (high frequency) would do the job however the size of the radio maybe not what your after. DMR (digital mobile radio) maybe exactly what you need! Assuming your a HAM

YouTube DMR radio ;)
