60 seconds with Chatterbox's Vasco Gouveia

Vasco Gouveia, radio technician at Chatterbox, discusses his career in the two-way radio industry

What’s the most popular type of radio system you’re asked to design?

A CALM+ system using a Hytera XPT 4x UHF carrier infrastructure.

What’s the one gadget that you can’t live without?

My mobile phone. It’s Android because that gives access to all sorts of apps that can help us remotely.

Describe your most unforgettable site visit.

What’s the most unusual thing you’ve seen while working in the radio sector?

What advice would you give to a young radio engineer who’s starting their first job in the industry?
