    These only come in 800mhz versions with the Antenna on the Mic. Motorola has them in the 450-512 range.

    Especially since you're using VHF. UHF loses less signal strength when going through man-made materials, and, well, man. *LOL*
    I remember there was an article in Public Safety Communications some time ago comparing the various frequency ranges and their signal loss through various media (building, car, clipped to belt, etc). VHF, hi- and lo-band came out the loser in just about every comparison, though it does better through "open air".
    The "mic-mount" antenna should alleviate some of the problem of signal loss from close body proximity.

    I haven't heard of that company previously, but will give them a look and see what they've got.

    We dont use them at work in NYC. Motorola would probably freak if we did.

    Excuse me? Lets try this. Say it with me.... Newbie doesn't know what he's talking about.

    This topic has been brought up rarely if ever. And secondly, it was from two months ago and you just brought it back from the dead.

    The thing that bothers me about wearing the radio inside my turnout jacket is that it becomes very difficult, if not impossible, to change to a different frequency.

    I was looking at these Stone Mtn mics from the link provided above, and I didn't see a frequency selection switch on the end of the lapel microphone. I think this would be pretty handy to have.

    I do like that they added the volume controls and emergency switch at top.

    We use them Josh. They work pretty well, although they do get waterlogged from time to time. Overall pretty rugged equipment.

    As to the inside/ outside coat debate.... After 2 days of rapid intervention training inside worked the best for me. Between the SCBA straps, Vulcan light strap and dragging the RIT bag around I was hanging on everything. In the "Cuss-O-Matic" (the tunnel with the wires hanging in it) I managed to cut into the radio strap while going through the tunnel. The next day I kept it inside and did not get tangled once. The down side is if another district car takes the run from the dispatched car, means we have to switch channels.....



    While not trying to rattle an old thread to bad...........anyone else dealt with stonemtn >? I found this here a couple of weeks ago and have gotten the info and prices and am debating about making the move. They recommend the Juno ...........and they no longer make them in red darn it. So onto my second question for the radio junkies out there, we are on VHF hi simplex system, I have a MT2000 with the public safety mic set up. Our local "shop" says these items "take away" from the effectiveness of the portable. Whats your take ?
