View Full Version : Ever use the Radio Shack VOX walkie talkie?

As a former professional Stunt Kite flyer (Catch The Wind, Florence back in '87). I bought a set of Radio Shack Hands-free Walkie talkies with the VOX capablilty for communicating w/my ground crew... I was skiing behind my kites on the land, while Cory Roesler was making headlines by doing it on water. Cory has been a lot more successful than I have...

Back to the radios, they had a headseat with mic. and you could opt to push to talk. I remember on the packaging that they could be used by cyclists to keep in touch, much like the Adam at Home comic:

So, is there anybody out there who used/uses these on tours? Or have Cellphones completly displaced them?
