Important Notice ref. New Transponders
 
As many of you will know Mylaps have released a new timing Decoder RC4,
and a new transponder RC4 (nickname Purcy). Anyone considering the purchase of a new RC4 transponder should be aware that it will only work with the RC4 decoder. YORCC have 2 decoders, for the indoor track and the outdoor track at RHR. Both decoders are RC3 models, which could be updated to the latest RC4 firmware if need be. There is a problem however. RC4 decoders can only read AMB/mylaps pts and handouts, Harrys and Purcys. They will not read MRT transponders.
Since a lot club members already have MRT pts, we do not intend updating our decoders in the forseeable future. Therefore if you turn up to a meeting with an RC4 pt you will have to use a club handout !
Details of recent testing of decoders can be found at http://www.bbksoftware.com

Is it ok to run the rc 4 transponders now I'm new to these things and looking to buy one or the mrt but probably the mylaps

MRT updated their transponders, so the new ones work fine with RC4.

I've got 5 with the same number, mixture of new ones and older style case, but RC4 compatible. I've also got an AMB harry with another number.
It's all as Mark says. I worry about killing the lead on the AMB as you can't easily replace it. With the MRT its easy just to solder a new lead on, so you can shorten as required to keep your install tidy. Plus significant cost savings with MRT. It's a no brainer.
