Using Savox RSM-30 to Communicate with Friends While Skiing

Posted by Daniel Hackl on Jan 11, 2016 6:00:00 AM

A field test of push to touch over cellular (PoC) during 6 hours of skiing in Whistler, British Columbia

Thirty-seven centimeters (37cm or 15 inches) of fresh, fresh snow overnight in Whistler BC, home of the 2010 Winter Olympics, was a good enticement for us to make the decision to meet up with our friends for a Sunday snowboarding trip.


Whistler/Blackcomb is a huge ski area, and it’s easy to get separated from your friends and really difficult to find each other again.  Knowing that, I set up an ESChat account for me and my friends so we could communicate with each other on the ski hill. ESChat is a PTT (push-to-talk) app from SLA Corporation, “the leader in public safety push to talk” that turns your mobile phone into a two-way radio.  While some might think this might have been a little overkill for a day of snowboarding, I wanted to try out the Savox Promate RSM 30 radio accessory- especially the GPS functionality – as knowing the locations of your friends is a big bonus.
