Push-to-Talk (PTT)

Momentary switches such as push-to-talk buttons can help you control the conversational flow in your Polaris Ranger Full-Size. Some communication setups like intercoms and radios come with built-in push-to-talk (PTT) buttons, while other communication devices can be retrofitted to work with an aftermarket PTT button. They are often integrated into hand-held radios, and hand-held mics will also typically have a PTT-style button on them. Fundamentally, a PTT unit is just a relay switch, controlling whether your communication system is transmitting information -- in which case it mutes your own receiver -- or receiving information -- in which case it mutes the receiver of your correspondent. Things like VOX (voice-operated exchange) switches can be used in lieu of PTT buttons, however many riders prefer the tactile feel of a physical button. So if you're looking to add a PTT unit to your Polaris Ranger Full-Size communication setup, or simply need a replacement PTT button, a PTT extension, or a PTT adapter, Everything Polaris Ranger has the PTT-related accessories for you.

Despite the underlying technology being almost identical across the style spectrum of PTT buttons, there are various PTT features that are attractive to some riders, yet unappealing to others. The mounting position is a perfect example of this. Depending on what type of riding you do, you probably want to mount your PTT button in a convenient location that suits your needs. Racers, for example, like to have their PTT buttons close by, either mounted to their steering wheel or on their person. Foot-operated PTT buttons exist for those who never want to take their hands off the wheel, and dash-mounted PTT buttons are common among riders who only use their UTV communication system every now in then or for emergency situations. Whatever the case may be for you, we are confident that you'll find whatever style of PTT button or PTT replacement part you're looking for right here at Everything Polaris Ranger.
