Is that the bike intercom with wires? I've got one and it's not bad. I can actually hear it over my bike exhaust if I shut the throttle

Yes it is Matt. I think it is an excellent buy, if I can keep the salt water out .

It's actually a shame lidl don't have them there all the time as they'd be a good bit of throwaway gear at that price.

My dad has a pair of these on board his Sun Legende for mooring etc but he's screwed the unit to a couple of old 'alice bands'... I won't be wearing one!

Matt

Was it your dad in PBO last month with those Argos headsets?

Was in the readers practical projects section.
