What You Should Know About
Racing Communications Systems:
The range of most handheld radios
is approximately 1 mile per
watt. However, that range approximation doesn't account for signal
degradation due to interference (from other devices, structures, or
geography such as high hills, etc.), pushing the limits of the
range, or other factors such as loose connections and antenna type
(short hard-mount versus longer roof-mount). You could potentially
reach 5 miles with an external, roof-mounted antenna and a handheld
5-watt radio with minimal signal loss or degradation, but that is
under ideal circumstances.
The speaker and microphone set-up in a given kit is another
significant factor in the performance. The speakers in some units
are adhesive mount, putting them further away from your ears and
often times not optimally positioned and prone to dislodging due to
vibration. Other factors, such as the helmet style and interior
shape, can help or hinder the effectiveness of your helmet speakers
Many of the less expensive communications kits include what is
known as a "floating mic". In order for your pit to hear you when
you're using a floating mic, the mic should literally touch your
lips if you pucker them. A boom mic is easily positioned in front
of the driver's mouth, and the better ones include noise-cancelling
technology, which makes a very noticeable
difference to your crew while you're on the track.
Drivers will benefit from earbuds if their track allows it (and
it's comfortable to wear them inside your helmet), and both drivers
and their crews will benefit from the use of a boom mic.
