I work in a relatively remote area of a theme park with a large radio infrastructure (8 repeated channels, 1 simplex) and a mix of Motorola Waris and Kenwood portables. Despite our remote location and forgetful supervisors, we have not been provided with a radio other than an FRS/GMRS bubblepack. The FRS unit would be fine, but our supervisors have decided not to carry both radios (park and FRS). At this point I have ordered a UHF MTS2000 I, which is compatible with the park's UHF simplex system. I have yet to talk to my dept. head, but I would like to use it for work. I would of course be willing to take the in house training course (mostly 10- codes and callsigns) for free, and I could take the unit to be examined by either an in house radio tech or the contractor as long as it means we wouldn't be forgotten about as often. I just wanted to get some insight from people who have used personal radios at work before and any challenges they may have faced.
Thanks in advance,
