Aren??t walkie talkies obsolete? There are several Bluetooth and wireless cell (not cell phone) versions that are hands-free and weightless. I am solo and have no personal experience, but I have seen other crews use those wireless pockets clips.

I just stick my phone in my top vest pocket upside down and I can talk on speaker without having to press a button. The boss pays a 12.50 a pay cell allowance since we have to use it for work.
Not good if you’re working out of cell service though. I’m almost never out of cell service and usually don’t have a helper either.

search for Discount Two Way Radios.
We are currently using RCA RDR-2500 model.
They are UHF and work great and are very rugged.
We used to have Kenwood and Motorla, these are very similar to those.

We use the Motorola “Talkabout” reasonably priced (less than half the price of my previous radios) and they work fine.

One crew wants the Kenwood brand – others vote for Motorola. Being cautious as they all could break an anvil with an ice cream cone.

We’ve got a pair of Kenwood radios. Hardly ever use them any more. Remember when we were working near fast food joints we were always picking up the drive through order taker and even placed an order once or twice with our radio. For some reason they’d always be kind of annoyed and not wanting any ‘special sauce’ on my burger, quit doing it.Willy
