I have a problem every time I have to refocus specials for a band. I have to squeeze my focus in between or during sound check (try not do do it during). If I have to do it during, it is so loud that I can not communicate to the person focusing or to the person at the board. I would like to get some radios that our entire crew (5ish) can have for preshow and during loadout. I can see them being used during load in and load out with out headsets, but we would need headsets during soundcheck and the show. We do have a wired clearcom system but it doesent fit our needs for some shows, the PM likes to sit in his office whenever we need him. We would use our clearcom during shows, and radios for pre/post and for emergencies. What radios/earpieces have you guys used and what would you recommend for us? We would not get a license, so we are looking at the family band radios. Also we would need to be able to use the radios during loud shows and sound check.
