Communication Devices

Does anyone use headsets to communicate with the rest of the crew. If so what do you use and where would they be purchased.

Thanks

Most use something similar to these. This is what law enforcement officers tend to use and are practical to our application.

My HS crew just ordered a set of these:

with the headsets that HL in NC suggested.

Looking forward to trying them out at our preseason scrimmage in a couple of weeks.

We have the same ones. We will be trying them this week for scrimmages today and Friday.

I will report how it worked out.

Peace

Custom case

We bought the Midland radios (3 sets of pairs) from Purchase Officials.

Then, to protect our crew's investement, I went to https://www.mycasebuilder.com/ and ordered a custom case with custom foam cut-outs. It's incredibly cheap at less than $50 for the case with the custom foam!



You can design your own case with their online design software. If anyone is interested, I can help with designing the cutouts.
