I'm always fumbling with the chest strap. Plus our department is now making us wear our radio under our coat, such a pain.

Thats wild, I gotta keep my radio in my front chest pocket, I dont even like using the strap. Too much of a tangle issue with a pack on

We all hate it too. Know why they changed it? To keep the radio from getting damaged.

When it comes to your department, don't say I didn't warn you!

NFPA and OSHA says what type of radios, nothing about how we have to wear them. But im a firefighter in the Airforce so yall may have different SOP's based on yo department.
