    do a search on this forum, there have been several inquiries regarding wireless remotes...

    The biggest problem that i see is i do alot of work on or around gas well frac sites and in quarries where anything wireless is not permitted... I would hate to adjust my machine and have the frequencies cross over and cause the charges to detonate killing the drillers, yeah?

    I know I'm considering a True Remote, for what I do I think they would be ideal.

    It would also suck to have more than one welder on a jobsite and end up with somebody else F'ing up your settings.

    Default ESAB has had a wireless remote for a while

    Around here ESAB welders are not very popular, except possibly with specialized trades. I do not know how well their remote works, but it was on a CC or CV shop power source.
    ESAB burn tables are first class, though.

    They all have different frequencies, you know like garage door openers, one doesn't open every door in a whole block.

    I bought a cheap Wally World wireless doorbell for my house. Every time I rang it, the neighbors across the street came to the door at their house. When they told me after a few days of this, and of course the kids had been working the heck out of it, I threw it in the junk in the garage.
    It would be nice if the welder romote had some adjustability for times like that. Kinda like some cordless phones had.
