Thank you, Andrew! I haven't gotten pricing yet for the Green-Go system, but I get the impression it's cheaper than the Radio Active system, so I'm wondering what the advantage would be of the Radio Active system, since the Green-Go looks to be a quality system and very feature-rich, and also includes wired equipment in their lineup.

The wireless green-go is about $1985 per beltpack and $1985 per 4 pack antenna.

Here is the text of a response from them to me.

Thank you Pete;

Even if the Green-Go system were used only as a Wireless Com system, it sounds like it would still be far cheaper than the RA system, or even other systems by Telex/HME/Clear-Com. Are there advantages to the other systems that make them worth the higher price?

Be aware that the GG wireless is not stand alone.  4-wire or 2-wire interfaces need to be added to interface.  The "roaming" capability may only be manual by switching antennas.  We will see when it exists.

Has anyone tried this new system out yet?
http://www.greengocom.com/
If so, thoughts or experiences?

Looks clever, no base station, no limit to users (well 3750, but who would put their hand up to work on that show) and 250 partylines... it won awards at PLASA and LDI...

Cheers
Steve

It does have several size base stations but maybe you mean no master NODE.

I get that. Still seems like it beats the others in price and features by a long shot. What's the catch?

When I get a demo I'll let you all know....

Each pack can be registered to 4 bases, and the belt-pack will 'automatically connect to the antenna from which it receives the clearest signal level'. We have 2 bases and will test how this works later this week.

Peter, you had said in the past that you had issues with systems that used DECT frequencies. Andrew's experience with the Green-Go seems to indicate that he wasn't having the issues you reported. Is that something you would be able to test when you receive your demo?

Yes, that piqued my interest.
