  1. Hi Warren

    Hope you don't mind me contacting you out the blue. I've read a thread regarding hearing aids. I've just found out I drop at the 4khz range so high frequency loss in both ears. I'm trying to make a case to OH not to bin me. One thing I am keen to find out is whether there is a negative impact on ability to use the radio. My understanding is that the audio output of a mobile is approx 3.4khz which if the same for police radio, means I'd hear exactly the same as anyone else as my hearing is fine at that range. If in a loud environment, I'd simply increase the volume the same as anyone else would have to do. 

    Also concerned that there seems to be a perception around inability to hear high pitch voices in a loud environment as I am yet to come across someone screaming for help who doesn't do so loudly.

    I'm happy to take any  job restrictions in terms of firearms, dog handling etc. I just don't want to be in the scrap heap as seems a bit harsh. Also happy to do any functional tests.

    Appreciate any advice you may be able to offer.

    Thanks

  2. Hi guys, Thanks for your answers. What I am really after is the frequency of the audio output. A standard mobile phone emits at up to approx 3.4 khz ie not the full range of the human hearing spectrum. What I am hoping to find out is if this also applies to police radio - whether the audio output is greater than 3.4 khz as opposed to the transmission frequency. I've contacted Airwave but am yet to have any response. Cheers

      Hi Jockey, I've just seen this now. I'll direct message you.

  6. Hi Does anyone happen to know the frequency range of a police radio? Is it above 3.4khz (3,400 hz)? Standard mobile devices don't go above 3.4 khz so am wondering if this is the same for police radios. Thanks in advance for any insight.
