There are radios that use VHF (Very High Frequency) or UHF (Ultra High Frequency). The major difference between them is the range of frequency which they use. VHF radios have been, far before and are quite cheaper than UHF radios. This makes the production and availability of the VHF radios to be higher than the UHF radios. VHF and UHF come with their pros and cons, which should be noted so as to make the right or suitable choice of choosing the better signal frequency for our radio needs.

VHF travels farther than UHF, but may not grant high bandwidth occupation like UHF. The Very High Frequency is usually for the radio FM transmitter, marine communications, long-range data communication, two-way land mobile radio systems, among others. VHF ranges from radio waves of 30 MHz to 300 MHz UHF, which is shorter in length measures about 12 to 24 inches.

Radios are not as popular as they used to be since televisions have come along. However, now televisions are becoming obsolete because there are many shows that people can see on their computer. However, there are radios with different frequencies.

There is the UHF frequency which stands for the Ultra High Frequency and the VHF frequency, which stands for the Very High Frequency. If you analyzed both of these, they might seem like the same type of rate to people who do not know much about radios. If you want a wider range of frequencies, then you should get the UHF radios than the VHF radios. Compared to VHF radios, the battery will get drained much faster in the UHF radios.
