RCA Introduces Best in Value Class of Digital Two-Way Radios Through Its US Distributor, Discount Two-Way Radio

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — RCA is disrupting the two-way radio industry today by introducing a new line of digital radios through its North American distributor, Discount Two-Way Radio, based in Los Angeles and serving all 50 states.

“While other companies are maintaining their high prices for digital radios, RCA is reducing prices while increasing the quality,” said Ken Klyberg, chief operating officer of Discount Two-Way Radio. “We’re offering the newest technology at prices that other companies charge for older analog technology.”

The new technology offers crystal clear sound comparable to a cell phone. That’s a distinct advantage over analog radios that have static. Battery life is up to 40% percent longer than analog.

“As technology advances, prices should come down. That’s what we’re doing. Other radio companies are maintaining their high prices. We’re offering a great price without sacrificing quality or performance,” he said.

The RDR2500, RDR2550 and RDR2600 radios use the latest DMR technology, which is specifically designed to meet the needs of schools, colleges, manufacturing, warehousing, construction and hotels.

RCA, one of the most trusted brand names in two-way communications, is unveiling its PRODIGI™ Professional Digital Radio Products RDR series in early December.

Operational in both digital and analog modes, the PRODIGI™ Series delivers crystal clear, dependable communication. Simple and cost-effective, the RCA digital radios are designed to connect your workforce efficiently and provide you with reliable communication, allowing you focus on growing your business.

“Once people check it out they will be wowed by the quality, coverage, price, and after sales support,” he said.

Both business and government two-way radio users will find superior service and support when they buy their radios from Discount Two-Way Radio.

“You’ll never get a busy signal when you call us,” he said. “We take pride in offering the best service and support in the industry.”

Discount Two-Way Radio offers superior service, repairs, and programming.

The company offers:

  • Rapid turnaround on repairs because it maintains an in-house staff and inventories all parts from major manufacturers. Most local vendors don’t provide repairs or keep parts in stock. Instead, they send the product to the manufacturer to fix. But that can take 30-45 days to return to the customer. “Schools and businesses can’t wait that long for repairs,” he said. “We turn around repairs less than 10 days because we stock all parts from all major manufacturers and have experienced technicians on staff. We have a full-service department and can service all major manufacturers’ brands. Instead of weeks or months, we can repair products in days.”
  • Free shipping to and from the repair facility.
  • Longest warranties in the industry
  • Support via phone and online
  • Programming services included FREE with every radio purchase

“We are striving to be more and more customer-service oriented. A lot of people say that, but they don’t do that. We really do,” he said. As the number of resellers has dwindled from 10,000 to about 2,000, many local companies can’t – and don’t – offer support, service, repairs or training. Discount Two-Way Radio is the leader in the field for customer service. We are setting new standards for customer service.”

About Discount Two-Way Radio
Just as technology was increasingly becoming foreign and impersonal, Discount Two-Way Radio came on the scene as a family-owned company with a passionate enthusiasm to build something different. Together with his father, Ben Burns started Discount Two-Way Radio in a small apartment in 1997, with no customers, no contacts, no money, and no product line. Discount Two-Way Radio has achieved considerable success growing the company to serve over 62,000 customers using a direct, straightforward approach that cuts through the hype and smoke that can sometimes surround advancements in technology.

Together, Ben and his father wanted to offer customers a respectful experience; to be the source of quality radio products, the best prices, and technological service that is more like working with friends and family than with a bland corporation’s glossy sales pitch.

With an honest, almost old-fashioned work ethic that primarily consisted of “pounding the pavement” with a reliable product and personable customer care, together they grew their company from the ground up to where it is today: a thriving corporation that maintains a dynamic full-time staff and 60,000 square foot warehouse. Discount Two-Way Radio has been listed as one of Inc. 5000’s fastest growing companies since 2007.

 

Which Affordable DMR Digital Two-Way Radio System Gives You the Best Bang for the Buck?

In various industries from manufacturing to law enforcement to education, timely, reliable communication is not a luxury but an absolute necessity. Despite everyone owning a cell phone, two-way radios are the gold standard in communication equipment for professionals — and this isn’t changing in the foreseeable future.

Given that technology is always advancing, it pays to keep your equipment up-to-date. You want to invest in a system that meets all of your important criteria and will perform at that level for years to come.

For the most bang for your buck, I recommend the RCA BR200D.

Let’s see how it stacks up to the competition.

A much cheaper alternative to the Motorola CP200D

Motorola recently pulled a fast one on its customers by discontinuing their very popular CP200 model and replacing it with the more expensive CP200D. So if you are used to buying the CP200, any new radios are going to cost you a lot more if you buy from Motorola — even if you have no intention of going digital any time soon.

However, RCA has a solution in the BR200D, which operates in both analog and digital modes and is compatible with every other DMR digital two-way radio on the market.

Packed with features

The BR200D is a compact, durable digital two-way radio that is a smart solution for your communication needs. The first thing you need to know is that it comes with a 3-year warranty — the longest in the industry — which demonstrates how durable the radio is.

It weighs in at a mere 9.5 ounces with a standard battery, less than the average 14-plus ounces of the competition. At 4.5” x 2.1” x 1.3” it is a light and compact radio that won’t feel like you’re carrying a brick on your belt and doesn’t sacrifice durability to do it. That small frame holds a 1 watt speaker that provides crisp, clear audio and is significantly louder than most other two-way radios. It also has a healthy battery life of 13 hours with moderate usage — more if you opt for the high-capacity battery.

RCA has been designing and producing two-way radios for military and industrial purposes for over 90 years, and makes its radios to last. The BR200D is dust proof, water resistant and shock resistant. It works right out of the box and is compatible with all major two-way radio brands like Motorola, Vertex, Icom, Kenwood and more so you can get off to a running start.

A few more bells and whistles:

  • programmable side buttons
  • monitor function
  • private and group calls
  • encryption
  • stun/kill/revive feature to ensure no prying ears will be privy to your conversations due to a lost radio
  • large 1” PTT button works even with gloved hands
  • 16 channels
  • crystal clear audio
  • plus lots more (call and ask!)

To sum up, the RCA BR200D is not only one of the best pound for pound two-way radios in its class, but it’s also one of the most reasonably priced.

When it comes to picking the right model for your organization and really getting the biggest bang for your buck, you can’t go wrong with this model — it’s an excellent workhorse radio and won’t let you down. Take advantage of the BR200D special bundle pricing Discount Two-Way Radio.com is offering for a limited time only.

Living in the Digital World

Broken MixtapeWe all loved getting our first cassette mixtape as a preteen, putting it into the player and hitting the play button. The sounds that your friend, girlfriend or boyfriend put on that thin piece of tape represented small pieces of their soul that they wanted to share with you for all of eternity. You listened to that tape over and over until the audio quality had completely deteriorated and the tape had become twisted and tangled beyond repair. Do you remember all the time you wasted fast forwarding, rewinding and flipping the tape over just trying to find that one song on the tape you really loved? This was the best recording technology at the time so we all suffered through the issues of poor quality and user inefficiency.

 

As the wheels of progress keep moving forward, new digital technology is replacing much of our outdated analog technology. VHS tapes replaced by DVDs, paper data storage replaced by digital data storage, film photography replaced by digital photography, analog TV replaced by digital TV, and the list goes on and on. Since switching to digital, all of these forms of media and broadcasting have become more effective because the information they provide is more easily accessible. Digital technology has proven to make quick, efficient changes in our lives and especially makes us more productive at work.

 

It is fair then to say that in the industry of wireless communication, digital technology is slowly creeping into the realm of two-way radios which has been dominated by analog radio technology for quite some time. Digital two-way radios are proving that they offer users a clearer voice transmission, more efficient use of power from a single battery charge, increased channel capacity, and advanced emergency and safety functionality.

 

Though it is not happening tomorrow, you can be sure that all two-way radios will switch over to digital technology in the near future. Some radio companies even have models that work in both analog and digital to make the switch more convenient, and businesses will not have to deal with any downtime when they finally make the complete switch to digital.

 

Do you want to find out how Digital Radios can help make your work environment more efficient? Are you already thinking about switching to Digital equipment and you need help making a smooth transition from analog to digital radios? We are standing by to help you, just call us at 800-895-5122.
