Dave clark makes excellent stuff but much more $$. We are on our 4th year and never a problem with it. We also use a large mike muff to cut down a great deal on the wind. PN 100593
Heavy Duty Microphone Windscreen


It's the same set up they recomend for open cockpit aircraft

I found this. Sigtronics does seem reasonable.

What would you guys recommend for something really simple? A portable system with only 2 headsets so my wife and I can chat. No radio of stereo plug-ins mnecessary. Thanks!

I heard there is a new wireless bluetooth system available. Don't know by whom though.

Have a friend who did a whole system with a brand new avionics system for $500. He had to make up some of the harnesses though.

The Blue Tooth Setup sounds pretty cool!

Scroll down to headsets and intercoms,

http://www.gulf-coast-avionics.com
select intercoms/headsets in the red taskbar,

http://www.sportys.com/acb/Category....ID=19&CATID=94
check out the headsets and intercoms.

http://www.mypilotstore.com/MyPilotS...word=flightcom
shop this store.

Dyno borrowed my Microcom portable intercom for an extended cruise and later that year he got a portable and headsets for his birthday. My portable will operate on 2 9V batteries for about 5 days and also can be hardwired to the aircraft/boat 12V system.

Many people use aviation-based units in their boats, as I do. Many others buy custom-made marine units that have a VHF input as well as stereo and celphone inputs.

All of the portable intercoms will interconnect with handheld VHF radios and many will connect with certain VHF fixed-mount radios.

I have a mixed bag of headsets; a David Clark, a Flightcom, a Telex that belongs to my wife and a Microcom that I've had since I was in primary flight training (this one is still my favorite).
