    Are any of the tourers planning on using a cb or other car to car radio? I have an intercom and am planning on using a FRS radio.

    I can bring 2 FRS walkie-talkies. You are right, it might come handy sometimes, although the reach is somewhat limited (and I can not hear it when driving). Maybe one for the support truck.

      I have two FRS radios you can borrow if you want them.

      These include headsets which can voice activate so you don't need the PTT switch.

      I may have some headsets with PTT switches too.

      The voice activated ones work but are fiddly.
