CRT 00 FP - Radio for paragliders
Compact dual band radio frequency FFVL possible 5W, small price.
The Rid'Air team's opinion: " ... "
Here is the entry-level radio from the French brand CRT. Studied for paragliding, it allows you to enter all the frequencies used in paragliding.
The CRT 00 FP paragliding radio also allows you to use 2 frequencies at the same time thanks to its dual-band function (like all CRT radios). You will be able to enter the federated frequency 143.9875 MHz in listening and use another frequency to chat with your friends in flight (subject to legal use of frequencies)
Its power between 1 and 5W is sufficient for local use on small sites. Cross country pilots will prefer higher models emitting up to 20km.
its small price, quality of construction, and compactness make it ideal for pilots wishing to have their first equipment. The screen is backlit and very readable. Manual in French, radio language in English.
Following numerous incidents on unauthorized frequencies, the Agence Nationale des Fréquences has pointed the finger at free flight.
CRT sets (as well as all VHF radios used in free flight) are intended for exclusive use between 144 and 146 MHz for amateur radio operators only. If you are not a certified radio amateur, it is strictly forbidden to use these frequencies under penalty of prosecution and a 7500€ fine.
We recommend exclusive use of the FFVL frequency 143.9875 MHz and not to transmit except in case of emergency.
As a reminder, the user is solely responsible for the frequency ranges they use. Use of any other frequency is illegal and at the users own risk.

With the widespread use of Dyneema® rescue risers and Dyneema® rescue parachute express straps in our range, the square quick link is less suitable for making the rescue - riser connection. We now recommend the 7mm Oval Quick Link for Dyneema® webbing connections.
