through one-way valves in the oral nasal pocket to reduce CO2 retention.

Guardian Mask Communications Package
The Buddy Phone® D2
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.The Buddy Phone® D2 differs from our standard Buddy Phone
in that it is digitally controlled and has some fantastic new features
such as: a voice menu to guide you adjust your Volume, change from
Channel A to Channel B, or put the Buddy Phone in a continuous voice
Voice Menu: When you submerge with a D2 Buddy Phone, you will hear the voice system say "Buddy Phone ON, frequency A (B), channel one (four), volume High (Medium, Low),"
depending on the prior dive's settings. Changing a setting is easy and
can be done while underwater. Depress the Push-to-talk switch (PTT)
three times quickly and hold the third depression until you hear "main menu - volume, channel, continuous transmit."
When you hear the main menu selections, simply depress the PTT to
select one of the choices. The unit will make the selection and go back
to the receive mode. If you don't make a selection after the menu
repeats twice, the D2 Buddy Phone goes out of the main selection menu and back to the receive mode (see operators manual for a more detailed explanation -- note:
continuous transmit mode allows the user to talk, hands free. This was
requested by many movie makers and scientists who talk on camera often).
In all, this D2 Buddy Phone is State-of-the-Art and OTS technology at its best.
