    Here in West Virginia the law specifically exempts licensed Ham radio operators from the hands free requirement.

    That's great in West Virginia
    But many states have not done that.
    However even if I'm driving in West Virginia and have the option, I will go hands-free. Now we need the manufacturers to make more Bluetooth wireless capable equipment.

    I know the AnyTone 878UV has bluetooth capability... granted, it is an HT, but it is there. I did a video recently on how to hook it all up.

    D878UVPlus has Bluetooth, but capability is limited. PTT is only available through a button that ships with the radio.

    Yaesu's Bluetooth implementation is limited to audio, and good luck finding a non-Yaesu headset that works with it.

    Icom's optional Bluetooth board that you can add to the ID-4100 can supply audio to one device, and allow you to control the radio with an Android / iPhone. The ID-5100 has similar Bluetooth features as well, but does not play well with iPhone on the rig control side.

    buddy has a 2M rig in his truck. Not sure of the brand but he talks to it through his bluetooth interface. Has a PPT button.

    Be careful. Everybody announcing and promoting BLUETOOTH enabled.

    Then find out all it is is a BLUETOOTH receiver.

    If I were smart maybe I could figure it out. CCrane 2E Radio now a BLUETOOTH version. My car radios BLUETOOTH, etc. etc. They don't transmit anything...just receivers....

    Just a consumer car radio nice to listen to it at a small distance away ? Change frequencies ? nope
