Essential Kit (Part 1)

Loudhailer, megaphone, bullhorn. Call it what you will. For my money this is one of the most valuable, useful and versatile pieces of kit we carry. Sure, it's great fun to use it on an exercise to heckle crew whilst they are ashore or doing other stuff. However, it truly comes into it's own when working near the base of the cliff with people who have no direct comms with us. That's not to say that it's without it's faults. Turn the volume above 7 and it feeds back like a banshee. The best bit though is the little red button. Press this and the contraption emits and loud piercing wailing sound. Not sure why you'd want this but I love it!
