WhenEMS people gather to talk about radio communications, it usually revolves around phrases like VHF, UHF, 800 MHz and bandwidth. AndEMS geeks know that FRS (Family Radio Service) and GMRS (General Mobile Radio Service) radios don't have the features that our units need for regular operations. But the Motorola T9580RSAME TALKABOUT Two-Way Radio with SAME (specific area message encoding) is an excellent choice to use for training and unique search and rescue operations. The rechargeable two-way radio has a 25-mile range and includes the NOAA Weather/all hazards alert radio. This feature allows you to scan seven NOAA and four marine band weather channels for alerts that will affect your specific county.
