Cricket Ventures launches new web site for Buy Radar Detectors!

In 2002, Cricket Ventures launched its flagship website, Buy Radar Detectors. Today we are excited to introduce an all new design for our radar detector site for 2017!

This new and improved site is easier than ever to navigate and to find the products and resources we offer. We combine it all with our top notch customer service and support for a complete virtual shopping experience.

Customers can now search for a radar detector by brand, category, type of mount or price. The Buyer's Guide is still there and updated with the latest recommendations. Of course, as always our customers can also call, e-mail or chat with us live on the new web site during normal business hours for even more personal service.

Cricket Ventures President Danny Feemster explained the makeover was needed to stay on top in the retail marketplace. He stated, "Our web site has been running on a platform that we developed in-house, starting back in 2002. While it has evolved over the years, it simply wasn't cut out for the web of today. Moving to this new platform has been a long process, but now that we've launched we're able to take advantage of exciting new functionality. Most noticeable is our new design, which is more modern and user friendly, particularly for mobile devices. I'm most excited that this new platform will allow us to stay ahead of the curve, and enable our staff to more easily deliver the service and support that you've come to expect."

Our new and improved web site is now online at

We have the radios for outdoor activities

Autumn is the perfect time of year for many popular outdoor activities such as hiking, camping and hunting. Whether in the woods, out in a field or on the trail, access to instant and reliable communications is a must.

At Cricket Ventures, we realize how important radios are outdoor enthusiasts. We recently updated our lineup of FRS/GMRS two way radios, just in time for fall! Choose from a complete selection of the latest Motorola and Uniden models. If they make it, we have it !

We also carry Cobra, Midland and Olympia FRS/GMRS radios.
Whatever your favorite outdoor activity, there is a radio made for it at Buy Two Way Radios and Banoggle.

First with the new Wouxun KG-D901 DMR digital radio!

Last December we broke the news from Wouxun about their plans to enter the digital radio market with the launch of their first portable DMR two way radio, the KG-D901. We first announced it in Episode 99 of the Two Way Radio Show Podcast and told our listeners of a possible a launch date in 2016. We also wrote an article on the KG-D901 in our Two Way Radio Blog with an overview of its key features. In June, we received our demo models of this new radio, and unboxed one of them in our Wouxun KG-D901 preview video.

Now, we are excited to announce that we are once again first to market in the US with a new Wouxun radio. The Wouxun KG-D901 is in stock and now available at Buy Two Way Radios and Banoggle!

Cricket Ventures is a Wouxun Authorized Dealer.

Blog series helps customers fix their radios

Our Buy Two Way Radios Blog isn't just about news and product announcements from one of our Cricket Ventures retail web sites. We focus on quality content to help our customers learn how to make most of their radios. Recently we published a series of "how to" articles about our products. It's not merely a collection of tutorials. It's a set of procedures to find solutions and get results. We call it our What To Do series.

Initially created to support the products we sell, this series of articles helps customers troubleshoot and resolve issues with their radio equipment using easy to follow, step-by-step directions presented in a logical order. From non-connecting programming cables to non-responsive radios, Our What To Do series tells you, well, what to do to find out what's really wrong with your radio (or what isn't), so you can set it right and get back on the air.

For more about What To Do, listen to episode #105 of The Two Way Radio Show Podcast.
