Central Valley Farmers Using New Radio Network
The farming community is using some old fashioned technology to change the way people farm. Farmers in the Central Valley are utilizing a new radio network in the region to improve their communication. Silke Communications, which uses push-to-talk radios, has emerged as the fastest growing push-to-talk service company in the West Coast. Silke Communications currently operates in Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Washington and now California. The Central Valley Business Journal writes:
Push-to-talk radios are similar to walkie-talkie systems that allow businesses in the five states to talk directly to their employees without having to deal with contacts or phone numbers. The system uses a series of towers, similar to cell phone towers, to allow users to talk to others with the push of a single button.
