The Tourtalk TT 40 command system is used when it is difficult for a trainer to be heard either due to noise or distance. The Tourtalk system ensures the trainer’s commands are heard clearly without them having to raise their voice.
Some examples of use are -
The trainer can speak at a comfortable level (or even whisper) into a microphone connected to a transmitter. The rider wears a lightweight earpiece connected to a receiver to hear the trainer’s commands clearly, without disturbing the horse or other people in the vicinity.
The range instructor can speak at a comfortable level to the shooters to ensure everybody can hear them. The shooters each have a receiver with earphones worn under their existing ear defenders. As the system is completely wireless and requires no installation, the system can be used for clay pigeon or game shooting anywhere.
The tour leader can wear a headband microphone connected to the transmitter to speak to the group. Each member of the group wears headphones connected to a personal receiver to hear the leader’s voice. As all Tourtalk transmitters and receivers have an integrated belt clip and are supplied with a lanyard, the system can be used completely hands-free.
The transmitter also has an aux input which enables the leader to connect a smart phone to the system, to play background music or pre-recorded commentary of local sights. With a range of up to 120m the Tourtalk system ensures even people at the back can hear the leader.
A kite display team flies steerable kites in aerial patterns to music. To make sure every member of the team knows what pattern needs to be flown next, and to ensure there is synchrony, the team leader calls out commands to which the rest of the team reacts. The team leader uses a headband microphone and mp3 player to transmit the instructions and music to the team. The team members listen to the team leader’s commands via headphones connected to their receivers.
The coach can call information to the rider, when training in a velodrome or even outdoors. The rider wears an earphone connected to a receiver to hear the coach’s commands.
If the cyclists are part of a team, then each person can have a receiver set to the same channel as the coach’s transmitter. The whole team will then hear the commands.
As up to 12 transmitters can operate side by side within the same room without interference, multiple systems can be used simultaneously, making it ideal if other teams/trainers are present.
A trainee is issued with a lightweight transmitter and microphone. During training exercises the trainee must describe the tasks they have been assigned.
The observers are each issued with a lightweight receiver and single earphone to hear the trainee’s voice. As the single earphone only covers one ear, the other ear is still exposed to enable the observers to discuss the event and hear any potential hazards such as reversing vehicles.
With all the above examples, a receiver can also be connected to a portable loudspeaker to cover any spectators at the event.
A range of command training system packages are available.
