I actually don’t expect to hear much information in response to this thread. That would be consistent with my internet searching. I’m basically throwing the question to the wall and see what sticks. Here’s what I’ve learned.
There are a few ham radios that seem to offer the Bluetooth technology. The Yaesu FTM-400XDR offers a Bluetooth add on that seems easy to install. Yaesu upgraded the add on circuit board so it seems like a technology they are willing to push forward. They discontinued their proprietary headset which doesn’t exactly promote confidence, but there are headsets such as Blueparrot that truckers say work well.
I’m sure there is a bright future for Bluetooth supported ham radio. I’ll probably do the add on eventually, but I realize it’s a specialty tool with limitations.
It doesn't matter who you are until you are whom you are supposed to be.
