    Hi Guys

    Just wanted to know what experience people have had with certain communication devices for communication between captain and stoker??

    There are a couple of devices i have found just by doing a little hunting around on the internet.

    Here is what i have been able to find;

    1. Eartec Wireless TD 900

    2. Tandem-Com Wireless
    I think this is actually the same as number 1 but rebadged??

    3. Oakley/Motorola Glasses Utilising Bluetooth Technology?
    Now this is a good idea. Incorporating both Blue Tooth technology and glasses. Using Bluetooth not only would it be possible to use this technology as a 2 way radio you & your stoker can also still be plugged into your mobile phone and take calls independantly if need be. And with the same phone you can also play back you mp3's whilst riding out in the country air.

    4. Motorola HS830
    More bluetooth technology

    Does anyone know of any other devices?? I would prefer to be able to get a mouthpiece that is a bit more discrete. Like those very small clear plastic tubes.

    cheers
    Jeff

    We use a combination of bells and whistles. She rings the bell and I whistle at her. Ok, we both have bells which we use as a kind of warning to each other to listen up. Most of the talking is done when we stop for a cuppa. By the way, I just got some 2800mm gear wires in. Let me know if you need any spares.

    We use actual voice communications.
    Works fine for us: no wires, no batteries, no ear pieces and we can change the volume at will, if necessary.

    We like our Tandem Talk. I set the volume just high enough so that we each can be heard over the average ambient noise without the other person being aware that the voice is being amplified

    The TANDEM-COM appears to be a similar, but more modern (fancier?), version of the Tandem Talk.
