Its good to talk on a short-range radio

KEEPING in contact with farm staff could be possible with Maxons SL30 Easiwave business radio.

The short-range business radio unit, which has a range of one mile, is claimed by Maxon to bridge the gap between professional mobile radio units and CBs.

Not requiring a base station to operate, the SL30 enables communication between groups of users or individuals.

Price of the battery powered unit is £199 (01442-267777).
