  • comms gear

    Team, I am looking at buying a few sets of comms gear for EP assignments. What's best for discretion, range, ease of use, price?

    I also want panic alarms for my principals. Again what's best?
    cheers

    "Team"? Who are you, Hannibal Smith?

    Seriously, though I like the Motorola XTN Series XU-2600 UHF 2 Watt 6 Channel 2 Way radio. $199.95 USD, and you can get an airbud with a mic for fifty bucks.

    "Expert" is something like "leader". It's not a title that you can ever claim for yourself no matter what you might know or might have done. It's a title that others bestow on you based on their assessment of what you know and what you have done.

      Since you're in Australia, it's hard for us to advise you. What I would do is put your questions to a company in Australia that has radio expertise, and you might want to rent some gear from them until you settle on what's best.

        Due to the very nature of EP services, it might also be advantageous dropping a line to this company for a chat about Transcrypt encryption systems

          Thanks

          thanks all. I appreciate the advice. And who the hell is 'Hannibal Smith'? (although I have a feeling I don't want to know)

              Hannibal Smith was the only person badass enough to give Mr. T orders and live to tell the tale.

                riiiight ! I remember A Team now. As a company commander in 3 RAR (airborne) , when giving orders I'd call my NCOs 'team' - it's a figure of speech I guess I use a lot.

                Thanks again all for the advice.

                belatede Merry Christmas to all!

                  Drew depends what specs you MUST have for the job. As I said I have a kit but I do know that some places have them for the different radios. Some kits will interchange with others but it depends on the brand of the gear used. Bendex King was a pain in the bum to get an adapter for in Sydney but I found one in Melbourne online.
