    I am unable to participate in the upcoming seminar on VHF radios. However, I was hoping one of the experts might be able to assist me with an issue. I’m physically disabled with limited use of my hands. I also have a very weak voice. I was hoping there might be a headset VHF radio that my work for me as no one is able to hear me. Thanks for your help, Kathi
