Looking for a good method for verbal communication without having to walk around to “find” people.
Line leader looking for supervisor, start up talking to materials person in central loading area.  Basically minimize the time it takes to locate or notify someone of a need. 
Has anyone found a good system, Radio, locators, ect…

Hi Steve,

We had the same problem.  We started using 2 way radios a few years back.  They work well.  Distributed to all key plant floor personnel. One draw back is they are a little on the bulky side to wear around.  But mostly a case of getting used to it. Can be a fairly substantial investment depending on number of people needing it.

We use Motorola DTR410.  Small antenna, but a lot of power and options.
