    That's a good way to call the Fire Department

    While a good method of communications, it works best during the day, leaving questionable clear communication at night. I love the ease of use, however, I highly recomend using this device where there is plenty of ventilation as the smoke can make your eyes water and garble your transmission.

    With the radios and equipment we have this is by far the most reliable, the citizens must use it because they know who is being arrested before the Officer even knows....LOL

    At 3 in the morning when you have a Volunteer Fire Department that is not responding, I want to place one of these outside their house to see if it will wake them up!!

    haha we use these at times too! when "sun spots" and "trees" and "atmospheric conditions" prevent audible radio traffic

    Since we cover 5 counties and the guys can't hear our radio in 3 of them, these are vital for communications!
