    Anybody have any good options for work radios? I'd like to get something that lasts a UPS normal 12 hour day.

    Try an I-pod classic and a really good set of earphones. Like the Westone UMX 3s'

    I'm using ear buds but only one ear right now. The problem is they've just had some pcm and actually read out of the contract where drivers can't have headphones.... I wish they'd follow the contract like that for everything

    I'm currently using a Milwaukee M12 radio with the M12XC lithium battery. It's small enough to mount above your rear monitor with a strap and comes with an ipod plug and holder.

    I like this idea. I currently use a small 3-4 inch speaker, plugged into my iPhone. It was only $10-$15 @ radio shack. Sounds not great but does the trick.

    Grundig G3 Globe Traveler. It puts out an amazing sound. I can even hear it driving down the interstate with both doors open. I use Energizer rechargeable batteries.
     
  10. craftsman 18v rechargeable radio from sears. $20 new and then pick up a battery and charger off ebay for about $20. my battery last 2 full days. radio stays on from 9:00 to 19:00 everyday. it very loud and does not get any distortion when the volume is all the way up.

    I'm using an old Grundig GM100 that I've had since 2001, it's a powerhouse of a radio that I've never had any issues with. Product Card

    The sound wasn't that great from the built in speaker when loading so I picked a pair of unpowered speakers and it's working out pretty well.


    Long story short I'd suggest looking for something by Grundig if you want a workhorse that'll last.

    iPhone and listen to your radio through a Bluetooth. Iheart radio Pandora and tunein radio apps are great.

    Your SUP is wrong. nowhere does the contract say that any radio has to be in the rear of the car. One of my stewards puts his on just the dashboard and hasn't had anything said to him

    The contract refers to transistor radios---I think it's time to update this part of the contract.
