    Im looking for a system that we can use car to car, I looked at the high dollar ones, not worth it to me, Im looking more for something simple like the motorcycle guys use, that will fit in a helmet etc... I would like it to be an onboard intercom as well...So my wife can hear and talk to the little ones...Any one using anything they would recomend...

    Think something along these lines would work ok, this is a 2 pack, I have seen a little nicer radios, and can buy this headset seperatley, the nicer radios are vox, i think that will be a must have with the little ones...

    [url=https://www.rflimited.com/Site.asp?CID=3:2ozkbfic]Motocomm[/url:2ozkbfic] Go to the "rider link ST-1" Then get a Kenwood or Icom handheld. You can also play music through these.

    I use a similar VOX handset and this headset:

    the throat mic is excellent for blocking engine noise. Hands free (VOX) is a must, you just have to wait a sec between people talking.

    I have the chatterbox multisport and frsx2 systems....Was using the pro pacs which consist of a hand held and a headset which work well also, and are relatively inexpensive....I recently sold 3 sets, and they brought $145...The multisports and frsx2 are more expensive, but they have the intercom as well as an audio jack that allows you to listen to music via an i-pod....
    Engine noise can be a problem with the vox system on these...My pilot is around 180db,and in order to get it where it won't kick on under throttle,you have to pretty much yell in the mic....I mount the ptt button on the steering wheel....It is also better to use the open face helmet mics,even on a full face helmet...They have a flexible boom that will allow you to place the mic closer to your mouth than you can with the full face mic, which velcros to the inside of the helmet...

    Do any of these work like a CB, where multiple people can be on one channel? It would be nice if all of us got a similar system.

    Oh, and there may be another new buggy for the first baldwin ride * I'll know more tomorrow.......

    The fmrs and gmrs can be used between different manufacturers...As they are mostly 900 mhz i believe, so you just tune in the channel, you can use most of them like nextel as well, were you can have a group, and talk directly to one radio...I am buying some, just gotta figure out what brand i decide to buy...

    You will be very sad with either the GMRS or FMRS handhelds. Get a real VHF 5 watt radio. The other 2 are line of site under good conditions. The Icom V8 handheld that I run on the bike is good for several miles in hilly terrain.

    Yes. This can also be a problem as there may be other people on the same band that you want to use. A good VHF handheld will give you several hundred channels to chose from.

    Silly question, how do the motorola small walkies do? We've got a bunch of those. Their supposed to have a 2 mile range.
