05/04/11 40 W, 1 I - + 4 - 7 The Future of Fireground Communication


From a reader, some humor on the subject of fireground communication. And they keep straight faces nearly the entire time! How many mics are you wearing... Thanks Marshall. Click to watch the clip on YouTube.





I do believe I saw at least a couple of folks wandering around wearing these compact radio setups at the RARSFest (Ham Radio Fest) last weekend at the NC Fairgrounds. :-)
Near the end you also see the compact TIC in use at many firegrounds.

Love the video!!! But the radio set up reminded me of an old radio we used to have in the back of our lock up many years ago. I did a search on the net and I found it. According to the retired chief that used the radio it weighed about 25 pounds and he found it was easier to use if he wore it on his chest instead of his back.
