Ok so our production company us getting quite busy and the FOH and I (monitor engineer) are getting further apart distance wise at venues. I'm on the hunt for a good 2 way radio/headset system or any other ideas so we can communicate with each other... Even better if we could throw the LD in that mix also.. The 3 of us have real trouble finding ways to communicate with each other during shows.. Any yips tricks or ideas are appreciated.
Thanks and cheers

ClearCom. Uses XLR to interconnect headsets with mics. You can fined used pretty cheap and run the connections using your snake.

Thanks, but my reason for asking us because all 3 of us are in different locations, we run off one console, FOH is run from iPad. I'm thinking like inears, or 2 way radio??

I believe there is a wireless ClearCom as well. You can always use FRS radios with earpieces as well but the ClearCom is full duplex - you can talk and listen at the same time, like a phone. Speaking of phones, you could do a conference all on cellphones with earpieces. Most plans are unlimited or no minutes between cells.

ClearCom is probably THE de facto standard, wired or wireless. There are others. People often use two-way radios with headsets too. Don't care for those. There are no guarantees those will work everywhere. A ClearCom base station hard wired to belt packs will work everywhere, every time.
