[quote=Autostream]I'm running the GME TX6200 - chosen because it has a bullet proof chassis, 5w, great battery life.

Running through my Starcom system which incorporates the PTT button as well as letting me plug in GPS, Phone and Ipod... can get a bit busy in my helmet at times...[quote]

Hey Auto, I have been wanting to talk to you about radios, Keen to know if whats the best deal getting set up for radio comms. Talk more on the next ride...

I've been using the Baehr system for PTT and helmet comms, with the Uniden 5watt mounted via a ram mount.

No dramas and crystal clear comms and music, even at 120kph+ with a MX helmet and goggles. I imagine a road helmet would be even better.

More information here ... http://www.challengermotors.co.nz/We.../intercoms.htm

May not be much interest, but I bought one of those cheap UHF radios off ebay (out of Hong Kong).

It is a programmable 5.0/0.5 watt model and is branded KYD.

It covers the UHF spectrum from 400MHz to 480MHz, which includes all the CB uhf channels, as well as the RFS PMR channels (which is why I bought it, to evaluate), some police frequencys etc.

I am actually very impressed with it, for a cost of AU$59.00, plus $27.00 postage, it is an impressive radio.

I have all the frequencies I need programmed into it (I have a list of frequencies), including the CB channels.

The battery life on standby is 2 to 3 days, which is good, but the thing that impressed me about it, it is TOUGH.

I have throat mikes, with acoustic ear peices for them, and my wife and I sometimes use them on low power for pillion to rider communication (I dont listen to music, and the last thing I want to do is answer a damm phone when riding, so no intercomm system). This is where I know they are tough. I carry mine in my jacket pocket, and whilst riding, I reached in to my pocket to adjust the volume, and when I pulled my hand out, guess what came with it?

It detached itself from the cord, and dropped onto the roadway (tar). We were doing about 80K's at the time. I stopped, did a U turn, saw it still on the roadway, did another U turn and kicked it off the road, before it could get run over.

I thought, OK, no great loss, cheap radio.

Imagine my surprise, when I picked it up, a little bruising and gravel rash, but apart from that completly undamaged. The battery was even still attatched.

Why I am saying this, is because about 8 months ago, I dropped a Motorola (about $1200 worth, and not mine) out of a stationary truck onto concrete, and it broke into 5 pieces.

GT,

Saw the KYD advertised on EBAY as well, good to hear they do the job, they are certainly well priced.

Mate, the best around are said to be Autocomm and Baehr. From what I have heard, while Autocomm are very good, Baehr are better. FWIW.

Personally, I would avoid flushing money down the dunny with cheapie options, you either piss or get off the pot (is that the right phrase?)

How have you found the throat mics? I'm not impressed with the standard autocom voice mic…
