You can hear the same thing on the video here viewtopic.php?f=16&t=3704 Go to 5 mins in for the Polycon on 419.1125 :walkietalkie:

All the Coms are patched into the Polycon system. Not sure if they can Tx back via it.

Well of course not, that wouldn't be very popular with ATC would it?
The purpose of feeding received ATC to Polycon is so that crew do not try to speak to the pilot whilst the pilot is speaking to ATC.

Pretty sure the ATC can be set to over ride the internal coms for just the pilot?

I can confirm Bristow use polycon 419.1125 for winchmen operations out of caernarfon airport. I heard them clear as day from Pwllhelli a few weeks back carrying out a rescue. I couldnt see them anywhere but heard them word for word.
