Default Transponders

Our club has been looking into buying a transponder.
We're looking for something a little more compact that we have found. Does anyone know of a transponder system that works on a laptop (with little other equipment) I was hoping to find a system that would let use your supplied or personal transponders, and would require only a loop and doggle which lets the computer do the decoding and work...but at the same time keep the price down to around the $1000 mark at most.

Any help would be great...thanks.

Drop
fast old fart
andrew xxxs
or tj
a pm.

They can be found in the australian racing, Castle hill offroad thread.

We run personals and handouts every club meeting. Complete with sound etc. From a laptop.

Sorry I am not 100% sure so I won't say brands etc. But any of those guys will be able to point you in the right direction.

We have a loop allways in the ground. And just plug in come race day.

Hope this helps. Our leads to it.

The most common ones I've seen are AMB and R/C Scoring Pro. They both seem to work pretty good.

I have been using R/C scoring pro for 5 weeks I have had NO problems with crashing. Ive seen jlap in action and it does strange things on resorts and it crashes.

AMB is right now the only one making a transponder system for RC (I think), but other company's have software to work with their systems

If you want to keep it under a 1000, you are probebly looking at a 2nd hand system. I don't think there are many AMBrc (with the Red and personal transponder) systems right now 2nd hand (and they will still be over a 1000 probebly).

But if the bigger clubs are stepping up to that you can probebly get their old AMB20 system (black transponders, NO personal transponders) for a decent price. Both can work from a laptop as long you dont have a really old AMB20 system which works with a special interfacecard that goes inside the compuer (dunno how its called in English, but you can understand right ???). Since laptops dont have room for extra stuff inside its a bit hard to do. But the later versions with a AMB232 interface box works with a laptop just fine (we do).
