    Hi all,

    I was wondering if anybody knew what the two-way radio comm's units any of the pros are wearing to talk to their team cars, etc?

    Does anybody know where to buy these units from?

    I have a race coming up in a few months where following cars will be limited, and the use of two-way radios may benefit.

    Thanks

    The radios they are using require an FCC Technicians license, and are basically HAM radios. I believe the use of radios in amateur races is illegal, so you may want to check on that before you go any further. If you are within a 3-4 mile range at all times, a GMRS capable radio may work well for what you need, and an FCC license for those can be obtained pretty quickly by filing online. If you are going to be within 1-2 miles, then an FRS radio (no license needed) will work well.
