I have purchased a set of the Collett 900's and can only get them to sink up in the International position (pole 1) ....They work Good, but pick up others if in heavy traffic area's....Really like the groomer warning.....But the Club channel does not work ....The previous owner does not remember if they ever worked on that channel bought used as well and used very little....Can this Club channel be set to the same frequency or do they need to go back to Collett for service? I hate to ship to Canada if I don't really need to....Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
collett will have to set the club channels for you,,, I have used them in heavy areas and did have a little cross traffic, but it really wasnt that bad. You are also right, the groomer beacon feature is really nice.
When I got my new set last year they only came programmed with the standard channel and they would not program the club channell unless you had at least 8 or 9 units, I dont remeber the minimum number. I orderd a total of three units and they would not put in a 2nd frequency. If you are a member of a snowmobile club and the club has an already established frequency they would put that in but you had to have documentation from the club granting permision to use their frequency. If you are not a member of a club then you must order their minimum number of units before they will asign you a second frequency.
This is how it was explained to me at the end of 2005 when ours were ordered. Things could have changed.
Usually when I go to Gaylord it is during the week so I am not riding in a super crowded environment and it seems in the UP that once you get away from town you are on your own so I never noticed a problem with transmissions from other people. Once you get a mile or so away they are out of range. I think the likelyhood of getting in and staying in range of a group of riders who are using Colletts is slim, at least it has been for me but as they get more and more popular it might become a problem.
