VHF vs UHF

VHF or UHF ... Which is best for you..

What situation most closely matches your usage?


  • I will primarily use my radio indoors.
    UHF radios are best for indoor use because UHF signals penetrate wood and concrete better.
  • I will primarily use my radio outdoors.
    VHF radios are best for outdoor use because VHF signals travel farther in open unobstructed areas.
  • I will use my radio both indoors and outdoors.
    UHF radios are best for all-around use. It provides a "happy medium" in the trade-off between distance outside, and avoiding "dead spots" when indoors.
