As from a certain size of boat, you will begin to notice that a crew communication system on board might come in handy.
The distance between you and your partner or friends and family is getting to big to just talk normally.
The person at the helm is maybe 10 meters (33') behind the person on the bow and the wind is blowing against the helmsman... not easy!
There are a lot of situations on board where a crew communication system does the trick:
Now, the system I'm using is great. I experimented with walkie-talkies before, but that's nothing compared to the system I use now. It's theEartec Simultalk 24G Wireless Full Duplex Communication System
Indeed, it's wireless and it has a duplex channel, which means you can speak and listen at the same time.
You don't have to push a button to speak, it's totally hands free! You just switch it on and there you go. You talk as if the other person is standing next to you, although he or she is maybe 20 meters (66') standing away from you!
Eartec manufactures also systems that allows more people to communicate. Me and Magdalena use the Captain to Mate system.
There's choice between different kinds of headsets, whichever one you prefer!
I found this system fantastic and I definitely recommend this to anyone!
You can even use it away from your boat, when you need communication in another hobby or job to do!
