    Default Why I joined

    Hi, all,

    My initial reason for joining was because of a suggestion from a fellow falconer to look here for some telemetry equipment, but who knows what other reasons I may have for participating?

    Briefly: I followed in my then-teenage son's footsteps to become a falconer when he apprenticed in 2014-2016. I felt like I had to shadow him on account of his age?and the fact that he was too young to drive! Anyway, learning alongside of him gave me the desire, so I apprenticed 2016-2018. He put his falconry on hold when he started college, and it's still on hold, but I've been going ever since, with a one-year break. We've only had RTs and my current one is the 8th between his two and my 6.

    Anyway, I am now on the hunt for a now out-of-production Tracker receiver (preferably the Maxima). That same fellow falconer I mentioned has one, I saw him use it effectively once, and I like the portability of it.

    That's all for now.

    I may have one I’d be willing to part with. Check back in a day or so.

    Okay, so I found it sooner than later. It is a tracker maxima 1000/5. It is in the 218 band. Put some batteries in it and it fired right up. Not to sure how to post pictures here. If you are interested maybe private message or get me you number somehow and I?ll get a hold of you. - Ryan Freed. Thanks for the update on the rules Jeff.
