Question Hailers/intercoms & VHF combos

As you guys already know, when you're up on the flybridge or tuna tower, it can be hard to communicate clearly with the skipper or helmsman at times ... one low-tech workaround is to have an extra "gilligan" relay messages (ie; paddy! crashing bluefins! baitball! etc.) to the skipper.

Does anybody have any experience or ideas in rigging up (or using) a hailer, intercom or a VHF radio combo that includes these functions? Are there other advantages (besides initial cost and saving precious space) to running combo units One good safety feature that some good hailers have is the fog, anchor, aground and other alarm signals Any opinions as to the best combo unit, or hailer/intercom

Shucks, I guess there's always the two folgers cans connected by twine

THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR IDEAS AND FEEDBACK

The better radio have a feature that connects the vhf to you gps and just a push of the button it sends out a distress signal with your gps numbers.

You can just yell down from the tower and you will be able to hear them or stomp on the roof. One stomp for paddy on the left and 2 stomps for paddy on the right.

Seriuos I have heard of guys doing this!
