The Buddy Phone® is a digital, micro-miniature,
ultrasonic transceiver allowing communication between two or more scuba divers or surface stations. Using “Digital Signal Processing” (DSP) techniques, the Buddy Phone produces uncompromising speech clarity. Special digital filters, combined
with the latest diver microphone technology, virtually eliminate unwanted noise and distortion. With the addition of an Aquacom® surface transceiver, communications between the surface and divers are possible. The Buddy Phone utilizes the push-to-talk method, which has been shown to be the most reliable way to activate the transmitter. The greatest advantage of the push-to-talk method compared to a voice activated system (VOX) is the elimination of the VOX delay required between transmission and reception that
can result in lost communications.
