You don't have to shout...

Got myself the instructor-student intercom. Should be quite helpful in getting the student to listen.

Last time, when I did not have it, I had to use hand signals and loud exclamations like "Go" and "Whoa" to get the message across. While it worked surprisingly well, the finer points had to be saved for the conversation in the paddock.

I got the Chatterbox central unit on Craigslist last week, and the headsets arrived from an online vendor today. Tested the whole set together, and it works. Now this only makes me want to go back to the track sooner, while I got another three weeks to wait.


  1. Walkie Talkies, in any form or by any name, are cool! I don't care who you are.

  2. Do yourself a favor. Wrap black electrical tape around the opening of the foam to secure it around the stem and then also bend the cord toward the stem & secure the cord to the stem with tape. This helps prevent damage from folks pulling on the cord.

  3. Good pointer rx7sins! I also plan on marking one of the headsets with a dot of paint or some such, and keep that one mine.
