There are many Azaan receivers available on the market and can be bought from online retailers and electronic stores. We at GB Electronics, provide both the products and the services required to set up Azaan Transmission within a Masjid. This has saved our existing customers a lot of time required to find suitable and qualified engineers to install the equipment.
The BaoFeng UV-5R radios which are pretty common are available online for purchase e.g. eBay. Main problem of buying your recievrs online is that these are actually walkie Talkies and therefore not only you can you listen to Azaan on these radios, but you can you can also transmit. While you radio is tuned to your Masjid if you press the PTT button on the left side of the radio it will transmitt on the same frequency as your Masjid. Recxently there have been many cases where people have caused a serious nuisance to other listeners. There are times when kids mess about and end up transmitting on the same frequency.
It is important to note that transmitting from this radio because it is illegal, unless you have a license from Ofcom.
So, why should you buy receivers from us?
Before we dispatch receivers we make sure that the PTT switch is completely disabled, so at notime you can transmitt. This is safety feature that only G. B. Electronics install before selling all receivers.
– We have professional staff that ensure all equipment is installed correctly and is thoroughly inspected.
Almost all of the Masjid frequencies in the UK are stored in each radio as channel numbers. With each radio you will receive a list of frequencies with its relevant channel number. You will also get an “easy to understand” instruction page written in plain English.
Before purchasing, just advise us of your frequency, so that we can make sure that it is in the radio.
Using the receiver is fairly simple. Just make sure that you leave the unit in the charging cradle, so that it is always charged.
