Lindsay, the SHU don't accept this. It has to be done with a SHU calibrated Benzing Club System. :)

Who has one as shu system been sent to dougie ball I've only one member to do that's move house a y help be appreciated thanks can pick up drop it right back

I have yet to receive the damaged system. An amount of system sensors are broken, battery connections and batteries that have gone missing ,in fact all the small batteries are now missing. I have just repaired a set of battery connections yesterday. The SHU will have to purchase more sensors as we have no spare sensors in stock due to the amount that have been damaged. Please if you collect and use a system look after it .

how old are these systems dougie ? and do we need tae order the sensors from a certain vendor? batteries can be ordered online. need to put a logout book in place so you need tae sign for it so they can be held responsible for loss or damage

Tommy, You are right about the log book. Some fanciers who collect the systems appear to then just pass the system to someone else and before you know it no one takes responsibility when the system is damaged or they hold on to the system until we try to track it down. The log book would make the first person responsible.

I still dont know why this was railroaded through at the SHU meeting, Clubs should be able to purchase their own ones, ie Garmin, the bull that was spouted about Benzing using 10 or more satellites when a GPS uses only three and the base being used to triangulate the position, the members at that meeting were duped, as they were,nt clued up on what was being said to them. And being only an observer at the meeting you are not allowed to say anything.

there dosent seem to be tabs kept on them there was 16 sets of benzing club bases which gps works off as far as i know handed into shu but a struggle to get one

and nationals dont have any base stations whos got them ?

I do not know where you receive your information from. The SHU received 5 systems from Jim Savage not 16.The sensors are now costing the SHU over £100 each.
