      Hi, friends!

      I'm new here, but personally I would say go for it if people want to use Bluetooth, on the understanding of course that they accept the possible consequences of interference.

      Just out of interest ...

      Does that mean people can use Bluetooth? Presumably two contestants can use
      BT at the same time (each with their own pairing). Do contestants find
      that's OK? Is interference or response time a problem? Do spectators' phones
      hog the airwaves to an unacceptable extent?
