    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.

    Your volunteer fire dept uses Baofeng radios?:confused:

    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.

    Been using lots of 5.11 pouches in my setups and I believe they make a case that fits the Baofeng radios on the market.

    A ham radio isn't designed to transmit outside ham bands without a mars/cap mod and then it's only legal to use that during sponsored events. Most of the cheap Chinese radios aren't type accepted by the FCC anyways. You should be using issued commercial gear for business and PS. Save the ham radio for ham use.

    Clearly you didn't read this is only being used as a cheap second radio instead of swapping a single radio back and forth in my vehicles. My commercial pager stays on me at all times, my commercial radio stays in my truck. I got this just to throw in her car if I need to make contact while in it. For the year I've had it the thing has been working just fine with my intended purpose. A few months back I called in a wreck saving a dumb teenagers life. Something I wouldn't been able to do with a cell phone due to lack of coverage.

    My comprehension is just fine thank you. Maybe you missed the point. Your use of that radio in PS duty is not legal. The use of that radio outside ham frequencies is not legal. You should use issued commercial gear. Your convenience notwithstanding.
