Intercoms

I've been asked by a few people about intercoms, as grayytronics is around £520.00 incl vat

Any one know what's available, other than Peltor.

This is the SP model, it's pretty slick as it's a sort of open/full face hybrid!

The full face retails for £347 + vat, the only problem is the language barrier, so we're unsure if that includes the intercom.

I should have some more details by Thursday pm!

I wouldn't be suprised if some sort of boatmad discount would be available!

We tried Peltor on Richard Struttons 4 litre cat, the whole system was hopelessly inferior to the Greytronics setup, which, IMHO is superb, and well worth the money.

The only problem with graytronics is that they will not supply offshore intercoms any more. Spoke to Bob Gray on thursday and he said its not worth the hassel anymore!!!

currently have a intercom being design being tweeked by some boffins. unfortunately won't be in production for about 2 months. a few of the ocr guys saw the prototype at windemere last year. will be waterproof to ip54 and around £250 with options for vhf. will have all the usual adjusments. looking into making it wireless however price TBC.
