Yes, Peltor and Sparco plug straight in. Stilo, Autotel, IMSA and others just need a simple adaptor which we also supply.
Yes, the IntaRace headset has a 3.5mm MONO socket. We can supply suitable adapters or customise a headset to your requirements.
Yes, we can supply the connection leads compatible with alternative button types.
Yes. radios from different manufacturers can be used but they will need different connectors.
Digital radios can produce clearer audio but, if the signal is weak or there is interference, the sound cuts off completely (similar to digital television)
Analogue radios may fade out or crackle but can still be heard at a greater distance.
Digital and Analogue radios share the same frequencies and both can be subject to interference.
After CB radios, the EU released a set of 8 frequencies (Channels) on the at 446Mhz (middle of the UHF band) for the general public to use without a licence.
These have now been extended to 16 channels but as mobile phones have become more popular with the public, PMR radio is mostly used by warehouse & security staff.
The new upper 8 channels (9 - 16) are rarely used as older radios generally cannot access them.
Due to its proximity to East Midlands airport Donnington Park have stipulated that licence free radios must NOT be used.
IntaRace can apply on behalf of teams. Please call for details.
If you choose licence-free, our radios will come with the new, extended 16 PMR 446 channels pre-programmed. Each of the 16 channels will be allocated a "random" privacy code "CTCSS" to avoid crosstalk with other teams.
In practice, it's entirely possible for 2 teams to be using the same channel but would be very unlikely to actually hear each other due to the "CTCSS" coding. If they are both transmitting at the same moment, you can get interference, but again, as most transmissions between the pit and driver are only for a few seconds, it rarely causes a problem.
A "Simple UK Licence" from Ofcom will allocate you several VHF & UHF frequencies (channels) that are not accessible by the public. We can programme these frequencies into your radios along with "CTCSS" codes to further reduce interference.
We can assist in your licence application if required.
Yes, if your vehicle has a metal body it prevents radio signals getting in or out. Without an external antenna your radios cannot function properly.
Karts & boats generally don't need a remote antenna as they are open. However, for best performance the antenna (fixed or remote) must be positioned as high as possible.
Yes. some teams purchase their own race receivers from us, some are allocated them by "Race Control" to monitor safety announcements.
Our pit headset has a special input socket so that you can connect a race receiver directly into the speakers.
Our vehicle wiring harness is designed to allow a race receiver to be plugged into the lead alongside the radio so that the driver hears "Race Control" directly.
Leads for these connections are available separately.
