Respectively the terms UHF and VHF, stand for Ultra High Frequency and Very High Frequency.  They are broad terms used to describe specific frequencies that radios operate on.  VHF frequencies range from 146.000MHz  to 174.000MHz, while UHF frequencies range from 450.000MHz to 490.000MHz.  Customers who are purchasing radio equipment, that doesn't need to talk to any other existing equipment are free to choose either UHF or VHF.   But which is better?  Simply put, we recommend VHF for outdoor use and UHF for Indoor use.  VHF goes further so it works better outdoors, while UHF is better for indoors because it's better at penetrating buildings made of wood, concrete and/or steel. If your company already uses a particular frequency of radio, whether is UHF or VHF, then this question of which one to choose is easy to answer.  If you wan them to talk to the old radios, then just make sure the new radios will talk on the same frequencies you're already using.  Be careful about the  band splits  too.  Just because you have a VHF radio doesn't mean it can talk on all VHF frequencies.  You have to order the right VHF band split .  For example, the Vertex VX-350, in VHF, comes in 2  band splits .  150.000MHz to 162.000MHz and 162.000 to 174.000MHz.  So, again, make sure you order the right frequency radio that will work with your existing radios.  If you're still unsure about compatibility of the new radios you are considering, then please give us a call, 1-800-600-EAGLE, and we'll happily answer your questions right away.  We're here to help!
