    Motorola radio accessories...

    At work, we use Motorola CP200 radios. Since we are in constant contact with detainees, they often overhear radio traffic. Almost always, they will have some comment to make about what they hear, or at the very least, get distracted from what they are supposed to be doing (school, chores, etc.) to listen in.

    Several of the staff use a similar setup to the one pictured below, but are having some reliability issues with them. They are an aftermarket brand, and not OEM. I have three questions.



    1. Does anyone know if Motorola makes a similar setup that will withstand normal use?

    2. If they do, do you know of a reliable, quality supplier (preferably online) where we could get some at a reasonable price?

    3. Does anyone have any experiences with a similar setup that can offer recommendations, suggestions, etc.?

    If it matters, we do not wear the transmit button/mic section down a sleeve and in the palm. It is run under the polo shirt and clipped to the front between the buttons.

    Thanks!!!

    Several of my deputies including myself use these ear pieces. They work great. We use them on the Motorola XTS 2500 digital radios. Try these guys I bet they can beat other prices if they carry them.

    I was looking at their site. Either I am Ricky Retardo and don't see anything listed, or they don't sell them online. I guess I could send them an email, or phone call. Any idea how much they cost?

    Ask them. I bet they carry it or can get ahold on them.

    The problem I had with earpieces (especially in a jail environment) was every time I got into a tussle, it would pop out and I couldn't hear my radio. Something to keep in mind.

    I thought about that, but we don't have alot of struggles, and when we do, the facility is small enough (40 beds spread over 4 pods) that help is literally seconds away. For example, yesterday we had a staff member call for 'all staff' to his location. Within 10 seconds, 8 guys were there. The layout allows us to have immediate response times. So, as long as I can get to the transmit button, I can at least call for help.

    Currently, I am using one of the standard Moto speaker mics. It plugs in, then I run it diagonally up my back (outisde my shirt), the clip it to my shirt front near the buttons. It works fine, but is not discrete at all.
