DTWR Spotlight: Alpha One From RCA

When it comes to two-way radios, some users want solutions that are reliable, durable, and cost effective, without having to worry about a bunch of frills or functions that they probably won’t ever use. That’s where handheld models under Alpha One from RCA can serve them best. These business portables are built with two major factors in mind: employee safety and workplace efficiency. Learn more about these exceptional radios to decide if they’re the right fit for your needs.

Alpha One Models

Alpha One from RCA currently includes the APR220 and APR280. For the purposes of this spotlight, we’ll be focusing on the 220.

The APR220 is the standard model with no screen. It provides four watts of transmitting power and comes with a large front speaker for crystal-clear sound quality. It’s also rated IP55, which means it can handle being exposed to water, but should never be submerged.

In terms of use, a lithium-ion battery will allow the APR220 to go at least 14 hours when in digital mode. This ensures that your workers never have to worry about losing touch throughout their shifts.

Speaking of batteries… Did you know that lithium-ion batteries are the best type for your two-way radios? Learn why here, and check out other ways you can extend the lives of yours.

Do you know the difference between analog and digital mode? Most radios these days have gone digital, but that doesn’t mean all networks have completely migrated. Understanding yours will make it easier to know which new radios are compatible — including APR220s!

Finally, it’s worth noting that through the end of 2023 (or while supplies last), all APR220s are 40 percent off!
