The station bounced radio will function similarly to a standard radio headset if you put it in your pocket or in your hand; thus you can use the say ";radio message" function as normal without turning on the microphone to broadcast. In addition, it can support the installation of one encryption key, allowing it to be used much like a radio headpiece, which could open up your ear slot to something like earmuffs, if you desire ear protection.

Using multiple radios can be done with say ":l message" for left hand and say ":r' message" for right hand depending on the hand used to hold each radio.

You can use the standard general channel prefix as well as any specific channel prefixes from an encryption key so long as the radio is in your pocket, belt, or hands, and it will function like a radio headset.

Turning on the microphone will pick up all sounds from the surrounding area and broadcast them.
