Wireless intercom base station advice
« on: April 28, 2014, 01:16:58 pm »

Hello,

I need some assistance to buy a new wireless base station,and it needs to be compatible with the wired station that we already have (Clear Com - MS 702) with 2 communication channels, The Clear Com staff suggested me the DX-210 system but it is really expensive and we are looking something a little bit more affordable, do you  know any alternative that we can use?

Thanks,
Jose Mario Lagos

There isn't much that is reliable that is cheaper.  We looked at all the options and got a tempest 900 system. 4 beltpacks and a base station was around 13k if I remember correctly.

We went with a Telex 2.4Ghz base station very recently. It's 2 channels and not terribly expensive. The one gig we used it on so far was our graduation. ~4K audience, so I was concerned about the signal getting swamped out by cell phone/wireless stuff, but we were OK. There is a little bit of operating hiss, but not enough to interfere with anything. Didn't even notice it after a while.

Couple features that I think I'm going to like: packs can operate point to point without a base station if you set one up as Master. Packs can supposedly also operate as extenders at the end of a Network cable.
Big disadvantages: battery is the proprietary pack only. While I like not being forced to go thru a lot of batteries, I kinda would like to have that option as a backup. Also, belt clip looks a bit flimsy, especially for as big as the pack is.

Cailen, what battery life are you getting on the belt packs for the 900 system?

The rechargable advertise 8 hours, I think 7 is more realistic but I depends on how much you talk. If I give one to an SM, 5 hours is better estimate.

We are coming up on 2 years on our battery packs, I might start to replace them soon.
