Anyways, how come no one seems to use the new system that Orion released a while ago?

PS: Thanks for Soviet for the testing.

Default Improved PT

So would any of you guys like an improved clone of your own PT or are you happy with what you've got?

... 114 turns, 113 turns why not fit a new lead yourself!!

Terry, if you're going to build transponders. Why not build whole AMB compatible system? Half the work must be already done.

Possible to do but... all the clubs have AMB and won't change.

Sorry, but there is no transponder with the #1234567. The lowest number is 2097152.

RC Scoring Pro. There will be when I get my MRT Personal transponder.
Didn't AMB say that there were 9999999 possible transponder numbers?

Terry. If the system is fully compatible with the AMB one, the clubs that don't have AMB system, or have AMB20 and want to upgrade, would look at your system. AMB system is good system but the system and service is very expensive. Lot of smaller clubs are desperate for smaller system.

Yes and you said you have #1234567, so I guess you don't have it??
There are 9999999 possible numbers, it appears 1234567 isn't one of them!

I agree. If there are a lot of smaller clubs desperate for a smaller system I'd like to hear from them. New clubs especially start off small and to grow need affordable equipment, the trouble is pc's are cheap but autocount is expensive.

RE PT wires:

Of course it would.

So I took a single wire, stripped it of insulation and grabbed ahold of it with two pairs of pliars. Spinning the wire in opposite directions, I got up to 114 turns before the stuff broke.

So there you have it. While your wire may look like a kinked and twisted mess, know that the wire inside is:

A) VERY flexible
B) Extremely strong

Sleep well knowing that the wire inside your AMB Personal Transponder is very tough yet flexible stuff.


(P.S. - That was alot just to say that the wire is strong eh?!?! )
Anyone broken their AMBrc PT lead/wire after all that twisting? If you have MRT can replace and fix the leads
