My crew and I listen to the radio almost every day while building our custom decks and outdoor living spaces, but we get tired of all the commercials on the local radio stations. We can stream the music of our choice directly from my smartphone, but that forces me to plug it into the radio’s 3.5-mm auxiliary input and leave it with the radio. I’ve missed plenty of calls because I can’t get to my phone fast enough, and for privacy, I have to unplug the phone and walk away.
I recently bought Milwaukee’s new Bluetooth-enabled M18 jobsite radio/charger, which allows me to wirelessly stream content from my phone from up to about 100 feet away. But my older Bosch PB360S jobsite radio sounds better and delivers more complete jobsite coverage, so we often use it instead.
