Radio's for Communication between Videographers

Does anyone use any way of communication between you and the second/third videographers at an event? I was looking for something practicle other than a walkie talkie. Something with an ear phone/mic like the ones cell phones use for handsfree talking.

If you know of anything like this and have recommendations for a low cost item, let me know.

Thanks!

Andrea

Some of the little FRS walkie talkie radios you can buy have headsets and manual or vox activation. I have a set here. Bought them at Wal-Mart.

You can also make a three way conference call via cell phone prior to the event, but that can get expensive depending on cell plans of the participants.

Be aware though, that GSM phones and IDEN (Nextel) phones tend to interfere with audio equipment.
