Question about Radio Communications

2 Answers

Safety I run an after school program, and we have a bin of 2-way radios that don't work anymore. Would it be safe to give the kids screwdrivers and let them open up the radios to see what's inside? Is there anything that would possibly harm them?

Hi,

Yes it would be safe of course assuming they have been briefed on the safe handling of tools. Other than the possibility of leaking batteries (if left inside for sometime) there should be nothing "that"dangerous. Again, they should be forewarned of this possibility and sharp objects such as component pins.

Hope that this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Hi there

how old are the kids? kids holding screwdrivers is a no no without someone watching over them.

Opening the radio is fine, but avoid Choking hazards like the screws, internal components ...etc.

if the battery is still present, dont give it to the kids to avoid chemical poisoning.

hope this helps.

Is it normal or common for kids graduating from high school to not go straight to college/university?


Yes, it definitely common in this day and age. A lot of kids graduating from high school will take a gap year and start university/college in the following year or some time off to do some travelling.

I dont have the original bin for an Infoguard SX100M. It runs if I hold it and push in the red button with a screwdriver. When I try to load the paper, the shredder doesnt grab it. Any fixes?


I can't imagine holding the red bin interlock button depressed with a screwdriver every time I wanted to shred something but hey, whatever works!

Your shredder does not grab the paper because an internal "page in" sensor is damaged, defective, or blocked by shredded residue.

Is it safe to use a high chair that attaches to a table?


The high chairs that attach to tables are safe as long as you follow the instructions. Don't put a kid in it if they are too heavy and use the safety harness and don't ever leave your kid unsupervised. Also be careful that the items on the table near them are not hot or breakable.

Trampolines are great fun for kids but you have to follow safety guidelines as a lot of kids get injured using them. Generally kids under the age of 6 should not be on a full trampoline. But read this article on the livestrong website which gives good details about kids and safety on trampolines. http://www.livestrong.com/article/200039-what-age-for-kids-to-use-a-trampoline/
