Do you use the radio in the tractor?

Just curious, I have cabs on most of my tractors, and on my swather. Swather is an old Gehl/Owatonna 16ft sickle machine with an A/C that works. My New Holland has a good cab and quite a few crature comforts including a fancy marine radio I got through points on my Bass Pro Credit Card.. The swather doesn't have a radio, but I did have a pair of those radio hearing protection earmuffs one time. It seems that every time I have a radio running that is when I either plug the baler or swather. I grew up with no cab and ran everything by the sound of the machine. I knew my old Massey 90 combine inside and out and could tell when the grain return was overloaded by the sound of the grain hitting the cylinder. I gave up listening to the radio while running a few years ago, including the truck. I seem to be a better operator and driver when the radio is off...

Neither one of my tractors has a cab let alone a radio. The old flatbed feed pickup has a radio which doesn't work. The good pickup has a radio which I never turn on. There is no cell service here at the house so I think that radio would be very limited and sketchy at best.

The more confidence I have in what I'm running and the more confidence I have in my ability to be able to afford down time the more I would listen to my radio.
Where I'm at there are not a lot of choices in radio stations so most of the time there isn't much to
Iisten to
