While I ponder joining the forum because I seem to be in the bubble pack league, I was wondering if anybody has ever tried using GMRS radios with helmets? In my case, I'm thinking of use on a motorcycle, but it could be useful information for ATV users and the like. Seems to me this could be a useful solution for folks over the expensive bluetooth communicators that are out there.
Yes, I have a license. Yes I'm a noob when it comes to GMRS.
Thanks for your time,
There are all kinds of helmet radio solutions for commercial gear as well as GMRS. Just look around net a bit. Racing teams and motorcycle folks use them a lot.
A typical race car has a mobile radio and a helmet mic and earphones plus a remote PTT button on the steering wheel. Motorcycle setups are similar but with a PTT button on the handle bars. On motorcycles, you have the option of using an HT or a mobile. I use a similar setup, but with an NFL style headset with an HT on my belt for EMS field operations.
