Do intercoms for cyclist exist (at sensible prices) ???

Speaking to a friend who I cycle with we were saying how useful it would be to have a lightweight method of communicating while on the move. We always ride single file and its very difficult to hear.
I have googled it and seen some at £100s:wacko:
Is anyone aware of an inexpensive system?

For chatting throughout or for occasional "where the chuff are you?" use?

When with the wife, we use hands free kits and I phone her before we set off. When we stop for a bite to eat I charge our phones with my laptop.

It sounds like you're after a PMR radio (with a slight TMN to Drago). Maplins it your friend here, although other online suppliers are available.

I ride with someone who's partially deaf and we're considering getting a set to make general communication on the bikes a bit easier for our next tour. VOX seems to be the way to go as you don't need to press buttons to send, but I've no direct experience beyond the bit of research that I've done recently.

We have similar for the boat. Useful at locks, where you need your hands free but need to be able to communicate.
Yep. Used 'em, well similar, on narrowboats.

Useful when mtb'ing and you drop your riding buddy on the downhills. But not quite so useful if those downhills are on real mountains cos the terrain really affects performance.
