Collection/Return of Walkie- Talkie

  • Beginning of shift collect walkie-talkie from Stadium Supervisor/Reception
  • Check that the power is on and the volume is at a high enough level you can hear the transmissions.
  • Check that the battery has been charged sufficiently.
  • Select channel #16 (rotate the channel selector knob to channel #16) unless instructed otherwise.
  • Wait until the line is clear, then do a radio check.
  • Return walkie-talkie at the end of each shift to Stadium Supervisor/Reception. Report any issues with equipment.
  • Stadium Supervisor to ensure all walkie-talkies are placed on charging bay correctly.

Radio Usage Tips

  • Be brief and to the point.
  • Stay off the radio unless absolutely necessary.
  • Engage your brain before your mouth.
  • Think about how best to make yourself understood.
  • Listen before you begin your transmission.
  • Make sure the channel is clear. Wait a full second AFTER you push-to-talk and BEFORE you begin to speak. This will insure the beginning of your message is heard.
  • Speak ACROSS the microphone rather than into it to improve intelligibility. Use a natural speaking voice. The only way to overcome loud ambient noise is to point it away from the source of noise or wait until the noise passes.
  • DO NOT shout into the radio. It only distorts your transmission.
  • DO NOT turn the volume all the way up. This drains the battery and causes distortion. It also has no effect on outgoing transmission quality.
