                                                A:  The radio is loud enough to have good sound, but not loud enough to use in an extremely noisy area. In other words, on a normal construction area, like building a house, it's good, but on the flightline, under commercial jets, it wouldn't be nearly loud enough to hear over the aircraft noise.
