When you are conducting surveillance, unless it is a one-man static OP or a lone PI following a cheating spouse, the need for good quality communications equipment is very important to the success of the operation. Many private investigation agencies rely on mobile phones to communicate and to a point they can be adequate and effective. However, UHF & VHF radio communications should really play a key part in the communications strategy for professional surveillance operators i.e. those carrying out high-end corporate surveillance involving large highly-trained sophisticated surveillance teams.
Tony Corrie, Director at Briareus Security, private investigators, surveillance specialists and close protection services of London recommends the Motorola DP3400; a next-generation professional digital two-way radio that delivers increased capacity and spectrum efficiency, integrated data communications and enhanced voice communications.
Tony explains, “We use Motorola DP3400 handsets in covert body rigs with covert earpieces for foot surveillance and close protection details; my experience is that the DP3400 provides clearer voice communications over a greater range than any of the comparable analogue radios on the market”.
Tony also recommends the the Motorola DM3400 base sets for use in vehicles, “The DM3400 is an excellent radio set which features 32 channels and has a large bright numeric LED display. Like the DP3400 handsets the DM3400 is absolutely perfect for the modern PI agency that needs a high-quality portable comms unit”.
Tony goes on to say, “I source my ‘comms gear’ from G6 Global Communications in Bristol the MD is Andrew Clark. They are an international operational company and nothing is too much trouble for them. I can definitely recommend them”.
