We have remodeled a 1993 Amtran Genesis bus into a party bus. We have a pretty killer sound system in the back for partying, but it has no antenna and is really not practical to run just for listening to the radio when traveling.
There is a radio/pa unit installed above the drivers seat that is still wired for power but we did away with the small speakers it had when remodeled in the rear.

It's a radio engineering industries R-320. It's also missing the microphone. I have a few questions.
1) is the microphone it needs just a standard unit or would I have to get one from the original manufacturer?
2) Is this thing mono or stereo? I see it has a balance control so one would assume it's stereo? Does it take just regular car audio speakers or something proprietary?
3) I would like to have a little more modern head unit that could take iPod input, etc. can I upgrade the radio portion and still be able to use the pa function?
Thanks for any help.
