Analog and Digital radios use the same frequencies but are completely different in the way that they communicate. Analog radios can be picked up with off-the-shelf scanners. They generally do not allow for any private communications. Digital radios cannot currently be scanned by fans or competitors. They provide for private conversations without the "hiss" and "scratchy" sounds of traditional Analog radios. Most digital radios will also operate in an analog mode for backward compatibility.
4-conductor has become more of a standard in recent years. 3-conductor harnesses and helmets are slowly phasing out.
The 4-conductor helmet and harness connector have a plastic outer housing and 4 metal contacts for audio. 3-conductor helmets and harnesses have a metal outer housing and only 3 metal contacts (including the housing) for audio.
We recommend that your new purchases use 4-conductor whenever possible.
The red wire is used for remote turn on for the radio. It needs to be wired to a +12V ignition switch. This will turn the radio on and off with the ignition or via an accessory switch. This does not need to be connected, however, many radios will not power back on after a power cycle without it. The driver may have to turn the radio back on manually whenever it is not connected. We recommend connecting it when you have a radio that has an on/off push-button.
The company that programmed your radio usually keeps documentation and will need to provide those to you. The frequencies and squelch codes will not be found on the radio itself unless they were written in a provided document.
If you are unable to get the frequencies and codes from the original company that programmed your radio, you will need to send in the radios for us to use specialized equipment to retrieve the frequencies and codes.
For CP200D, Mag-One BPR 40, and all Portable radios, the most common issue with the radio simply not working with a connected headset is that the cable is not pushed all the way and firmly clicked into the portable radio. This is very common even with seasoned pros and is most likely the culprit. To fix this issue, push the cable in as hard as you can. You will hear it click or pop into place. This needs to be done REALLY, REALLY HARD. Don't worry you will not break it. This snug fit is designed to keep the cable firmly locked in place and ensure that radio communication will not fail under extreme conditions.
If this does not solve the issue please contact us and we will be happy to help troubleshoot further. We are alway here to help and make sure you are ready to go with reliable high-quality two-way communications.
