The Ocean Technology System (OTS) RX-100-D2-A Buddy Phone is a receive only unit designed as an acoustic underwater listening device to be used with all Buddy Phone® or Aquacom® transceivers within range and on the same frequency. To use the OTS RX-100-D2-A Buddy Phone, the diver simply attaches the RX-100-D2-A to his or her own face mask by positioning the phone right over the ear and is ready to go. When the diver enters the water, the RX-100 powers up and cycles to the receive mode only - ready to only receive messages.
The OTS RX-100-D2-A Buddy Phone® has a new squelch which only allows signals at a specified strength over a threshold to be played over the speaker. This helps decrease bubble and marine biological noise. The OTS RX-100-D2-A is the most powerful tool an instructor or underwater tour guide can use. It allows verbal communications helping the new diver feel more secure.
Please see the OVERVIEW tab for a list of compatible underwater communication devices to the OTS RX-100-D2-A Buddy Phone.
