Default 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

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.
