Communication on the different MacFarlane Pheasant farms is a high priority. Two-way radios are a form of communication we have used for at least 25 years. We added a repeater about 15 years ago.
The repeater is a special device in modern communication. Traditional portable radios had a more limited coverage area. The repeater is a device that acts as a link between two radio operators to cover a larger area. The repeater transmits a two-way radio call at another frequency, in real-time. Our repeater has increased our coverage with the radios to 5 plus miles.
We rarely have problems with our radios now that we have a repeater. But, if there is a problem it is while transmitting from inside a building. We walk outside and the problem is solved!
Radios are important for a couple of reasons. They save both time (traveling across the farm to communicate) and money (gas, oil, and wear and tear on vehicles). As you probably already know, time and money are essential to every business. The pheasant business is not an exception!
