Tait radios for Emirates Team New Zealand

Team New Zealand using Tait TP9400 P25 digital portable radios

We’re proud to be backing Emirates Team New Zealand (ETNZ) this week as they launch their America’s Cup campaign in San Francisco for the 2013 Louis Vuitton Cup.

The team is equipped with 22 beyond-tough Tait TP9400 P25 digital portable radios, providing the sailors and support crew with highly secure, crystal-clear communications on the water.

Jeremy Armstrong, ETNZ’s electrician, says:

“Comms on the water is paramount for safety and for the operation of the yacht. Each day, the amount of conversation that goes between chase-boat and yacht is huge. So having that information crystal-clear and trouble-free is paramount to the ongoing success of Team New Zealand, really.”
