    Need a good molle pouch suggestion that fits one of these. Has to be either black or tan (coyote/sand/khaki/ect). Would like a model specific one but they don't seem to exist. I just don't want one that looks like it is not designed to carry it.

    ITSTactical (no affiliation) has a fancy one that looks like it would work. No affiliation.

    Is fancy but I don't think I like the attached to the front flap design. Might be ok on a plate carrier or my bag but I don't think the radio would stay in it on my belt putting a set of turn outs on. Can't recall ever needing a plate carrier as a volunteer fire fighter.

    I was going to mention this same case although it strikes me as a bit over designed.

    The fire dept uses Motorola. They issue a radio and a pager. My main radio lives in my truck.

    I got a cheap radio to leave in my girlfriends car if I'm paged out while with her. You can't talk on a pager.

    Does that radio let you transmit on public safety bands? Or is your department using a ham band to communicate?

    This radio will transmit on uhf and vhf bands. My fire dept uses emergency service channels on the vhf high band. Most ham radios can pick it up but the use of them is restricted to emergency services. It's completely legal for anybody to listen to. Different areas use different frequencies. If you are in the US you can go here to find out what your area uses https://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/

    I’m a pretty avid scanner and ham. That’s why I was wondering if that radio was unlocked to transmit on those bands. I actually like the fleet radio look to it.
