Zello is a push-to-talk (PTT) app available for all pertinent mobile OS: iOS, Android, Windows and Blackberry. It offer additional features over, say, a walkie-talkie: history, replay last message, notifications and Bluetooth device support. It works over 2G, 4G, 3G and GPRS/EDGE networks. In some countries, it has helped individuals organize such things as protests and marches.
Here at the VUC, as we have many amateur radio ops, we adopted it in our never-ending quest for the bright and shiny messaging holy grail.
Many have compared Zello to Nextel’s PTT feature. We’ll definitely do a demo of Zello and CEO Bill Moore will talk about some of the other possibilities of the app. Alexey Gavrilov, founder also was able to join and talk tech with the VUC panel.
