Calls to Radio
Network does not allow incoming phone calls to the radio.
This decision was made based on many years experience with
the Telstra RDD system. As experienced then, approximately
80% of people didn't know how to correctly use the system
and served to do nothing more than congest the network and
waste their time & money on STD calls.
factor was by allowing this feature it effectively increases
the loading on the network an average of 300% due to all the
additional people trying to use the system.
for this we have implemented 'Message Service'
to the 'Emergency Assist' Plan - Message Service provides
a facility where family, friends or work associates can simply
phone Radtel Network head office, and give the relevant details
as required to be passed on to the radio. Messages can also
be passed on from the radio to other persons in the event
of an emergency.
