4th Of July Special on Digital Crew Radio System


Recommended Posts

Who's using this radio?  Does it punch to the edges of most tracks?

 

I'm in the market to upgrade.  It pains me to start over, we have a LOT of radio related infrastructure.  BUT, we're tired of losing radio contact on half the track at most places we go.

 

I need at least 3 car kits, 6-8 handhelds, crew chief headset 'thingy', chargers, spare batterys, wiring for 6 helmets.  We were NASCAR, willing to change to IMSA.

Hi Sam

 

We have been offering digital radio for the last 3 years. You will get 100% coverage at every track you run. Here is a quick video of analog vs digital quality difference. The Vertex EVX 261 is a newer vir of the EVX 531 seen in the video.

Almost never for us, we've only had one time that another team was on the same channel and we asked them to switch stations and it wasn't a problem.   But we also caught it before the roll out of the pits to start the day.

Maybe Shawn can comment on this.  I seem to think that the Boafeng radios we have are a fairly distinct frequency or they have codes so that your radio will only talk with your radios.  I have no idea though.


Recently at Watkins with 100+ cars, we had another team on the same channel.  But in reality it was very intermittent (only happened 10 or so times over the course of the weekend) and wasn't very clear when it happened.  I have no idea if they were stuck listening to our stupid banter all weekend long!

Hey Gang-

 

The biggest issue, with say "less expensive radios" (Example, Baofeng) is intermittent freq bleed-over as pointed out above. For example, you might pick up other teams every now and then or you might be picked up by others as well. Bleed-over happens when the radios freq/codes are very close to one another and the radio encoder/decoder is not as "precise" as it could be. Best thing to do is just find a different channel and race on :)

 

With that being said, a true digital radio (Example, Vertex or Mototrbo) will never have a bleed-over issue.

 

Cheers, Shawn
