    I have a pre existing, Bogen wired intercom system currently in my auditorium.
    Does anyone know any products or know any way to wire regular "colorful" family use walkie talkies into my system?
    I have two types of radios I can use.
    One with regular one jack for a headset, and the other has two seperate jacks for sound and mic.
    Any products or ways to wire this in?
    Anything would help. Thanks!

    Before others come and say it, those radios are for private use only and should not be used in any type of business setting, including schools. Now, they do make walkie talkie interfaces,

    Alright how about bussiness radios, and would the clearcom interface be able to work with my wired system? Would I need to check anything?
    Becuase my existing system has no call lights or call buttons.
    Thanks

    Thats what I was thinking. You might save yourself the headache and pickup a clearcom system, a 2way radio interface and some Motorola business class 2way radios (but only if you have an extra butt load of money sitting around collecting dust!!!). Obviously this would be expensive but its most likely the better solution.

    First, FRS radios ARE legal for commercial use. Anybody who says otherwise is misinformed. Do a search, I've posted a link to the appropriate info from the FCC elsewhere here :)

    Second, I'm moving this to the sound section, you may get more posts there!

    FRS is legal to use for business use, but GMRS is not.

    You misread my post. As I said, and as Mike reaffirmed, the earlier post is incorrect. FRS radios are NOT illegal for commercial use. Anybody telling you otherwise is misinformed.
