As winter weather nears, Forestry Suppliers Inc., a leading authorized reseller of Motorola two-way radios, has issued a new bulletin highlighting four key maintenance and safety tips for outdoor businesses and professionals using Motorola DLR digital two-way radios in cold, icy and snowy conditions.

“With their extreme range that can deliver clear communications outdoor or indoors covering 300,000 feet, along with durable and rugged design with built-in antimicrobial protection and 14-hour battery life, the Motorola DLR digital two-way radios are ideal for outdoor businesses and professionals, from construction and surveying crews to snow clearing operations and more,” commented Brigg Abercrombie, New Products Manager at Forestry Suppliers. “Following simple, common sense maintenance tips will ensure that the two-way radios work perfectly for decades to come."

1. Proper Storage: When not in use, properly store the Motorola DLR digital two-way radios in a dry, secure storage area, such as a locker or lock box. It’s also beneficial to store the two-way radios separately from other electronics.

2. Battery Charging: Proper charging is essential to keep Motorola DLR digital two-way radios functioning properly. They should be turned off before being charged, and wet devices or battery packs should never be charged until they’re thoroughly dry.

3. Cleaning: To avoid dirt and grime build-up, periodically wipe the (powered-off) Motorola DLR digital two-way radios with alcohol wipes or a clean, soft and slightly damp cloth. Do not use household or industrial cleaning products, or immerse the two-way radios in water.

4. Proper Care: Avoid handling the Motorola DLR digital two-way radios by the earpiece or speaker microphone cord, as this can damage the jack. Job supervisors and staff managers should ensure that their crews and teams properly handle the equipment at all times.

Other features of the Motorola DLR digital two-way radios that Abercrombie and his team at Forestry Suppliers believe will benefit outdoor businesses and professionals include ease of use, compact design, license-free operation, immediate response, enhanced privacy, direct call, call all available, instant mute, talk permit tones, home channel, and advanced configuration menus with voice prompts.
