    Geoff I agree with your lengthy post - line by line. And to be clear, I have no horrified fear of the potential outcomes that might occur if falconry were largely deregulated - frankly, I think it...

    Fred, gotta ask, wothout a degauzer (I don’t have one handy) how did you demagnetize your springs?

    Thanks for the input, Geoff. I also like the idea of getting the beep intervals customized to increase battery life (this reduction was the single nagging issue that caused me to delay switching to...
  4. Anyone have problems Scout UHF magnetic switch?

    I have a pair of Scout UHF TXs new this year (purchased from Mike’s Falconry along with a UHF reciever). Both have shown intermittent problems with the magnetic on/off switch - now one of the...

    FM800 w/HSL Yagi vs. UHF 100 questions...

    I think I am finally going to bite the bullet next season and upgrade to a Marshall receiver from my Tracker (probably going to sell it). My birds never range far and so the Tracker has been a small,...

    The issue is weight control; flight weight is not a static number, it is impacted by all the variables listed - including boredom and manipulation of the falconer/trainer on the birds part.

    This is may be about manning - advice below....

    Although I agree with other posters that weight may be an issue (the bird may be "hot"); leaving that aside and focusing upon manning for the sake of discussion, I resolve these issues with new birds...
  8. Ron, you answered ny question....

    I had wondered if there was a cost differential in production of the two yagis. And it does make sense that if the FM 800 has a wider profit margin, it would be better positioned to absorb the added...
  9. Is there a reason why Marshall hasn't made the HSL yagi standard on all new receiver?

    I think there would be an appreciation for this from those who have heavy investment in VHF tx's and want to upgrade - but have a hard time reconciling the additional yagi upgrade cost. Seems like it...

    This is an important idea - one with amazing potential. Here are requirements/performance parameters I (personally) would consider for your project:

    Amazing Service! Thanks, Western Sporting!

    A while ago, I dropped my transmitter Signal Finder (purchased from Western Sporting) and cracked the case. This ruined my day, seriously. Signal finders cost $40, and it was the Christmas season,...

    RB- final question

    Thanks for the update - I am glad that the bodies on both were reduced - and I appreciate the closed-size comparison for the yagis.

    Do you have dimensions for the two yagis when deployed...

    Size comparison: 800 vs UHF receiver

    Q -the Marshall promotional material (on the web site) discusses a down-sized body case for the UHF receivers - obviously smaller in the photos. Have you downsized the body case for the 800's too...
