But the new ones have screw in battery covers as standard so it canít be same issue as before?

That's assuming it was the battery cover that was the problem with the old ones. I have to say I always kept a close eye on the covers and still had problems.

Has anyone looked at the casing joint at the aerial area on the receiver?

I reckon the issues must somehow be related to the battery cover. Iíve never had any issues with mine in years, but Iíve had the screw on backs fitted pretty much since Iíve owned them.

Iíd be amazed if delkim havenít sorted this issue. Itís not like they arenít aware of it. The looks of the new ones have grown on me but instead of adding loads of additional stuff. Iíd have preferred just a simple version but with digital inners.

In all honesty apart from sensitivity how many of the functions would you actually use once the novelty has worn off.

Perhaps a delkim brolly that clips to your rod to protect the alarm

Likewise mate, performance was always top knotch, it's the reliability that concerns me.

According to delkim when they replied to my question about the new delkim being waterproof all of their alarms are waterproof.They then went on to tell me to dry my alarm out after use or issues could happen if I left my bike or car out in the rain would I not expect it to rust .Not sure how I can dry an alarm out whilst it's pissing down in the middle of a session.
I really wanted these to be good as always stated if they sorted the receiver out I would go back to delkim

Use delks in good weather rx+ in the rain

I used to carry an ancient Micron M for when my Delks went wrong in the rain. Never let me down, hence ended up moving to the NTXRs.

Mine havent been out in the rain yet. Think ill keep hold of the rx+ for a bit longer now. Was pretty much decided on the delks but got a week at sandhurst coming up. Dont want to be caught short. Hopefully its only an issue with a few unlucky ones and not a general problem.

I have been tempted by these for a while now but this is not the first report of failures.I hope its just teething problems and it gets sorted out and so does your alarm

You are the 2nd person that I heard of thatís had this issue. The other person had 2 out 3 stop working after Friday nights downpours

If you pull the casing along aerial part of receiver without much enough where join is the it opens up almost like itís not sealed correctly is this true?

Had no problems with mine so far (touch wood) had them in torrential rain the lot, they haven't missed a beat. I'd contact who ever you bought them off or delkim themselves

Out on the Bank with my brand spanking new txi-d's for my 1st overnighter in a while. Massive thunderstorm and torrential rain tonight. Just after the rain stopped, my right hand delkim screams off, but there's no line being taken. Been here before with my original txi's, but only after years of abuse. Not a happy bunny at all at 2am. Luckily I'm on a 2 rod water and can now use my middle alarm!
