I am looking for some help in finding the right purchase for me, I am a racing driver and we are looking for radio system for endurance karting, both radios and headsets.
Looking to spend about £300 to get 3 handsets, 2 in helmet headsets and 1 headset to use in the pits.
What were looking for
- Waterproof (these will be in the rain for hours at a time)
- Good battery life
- PTT functionally
- Not necessarily small but a slimmer unit would be good as they will go under our race suits
- headset to fit inside helmet with mic
In terms or range we don’t need too much as most tracks are under 1 mile across as any point with most often a clear line of sight.
Thanks in advance for any help
You can get cheap in helmet earpieces for cheap prices on ebay that have a remote ptt button. The snag is simply noise. Is an earpiece speaker sitting over your ear loud enough? If it isnt you need to move to ear bud types but a couple of these will probably eat your budget up. A decent pit lane cheap headset will be at least fifty quid. These will all work with cheap radios. So you can do three radios for not a lot. Kenwoods, baofengs etc and the licence to be legit is 75 for a business licence. Here’s a cheapie headset for info https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/283652692533?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=710-134428-41853-0&mkcid=2&itemid=283652692533&targetid=1140014333742&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=1006893&poi=&campaignid=12128875090&mkgroupid=113659295181&rlsatarget=aud-629407027825:pla-1140014333742&abcId=9300481&merchantid=110660553&gclid=CjwKCAiAhbeCBhBcEiwAkv2cYzebLBbSpVFU8ByV0XnzGU4jbFeIBsVXsNrgAano_mU5jc-UuKuIJRoCj1UQAvD_BwE
