Daz, I will presume you are familiar with Telemetry. I have a Transmitter on 173.5125 - marked K9148. [channel 1] which I use leg mounted, the Reciever is in it's pouch attached to my belt, [accessable and safe]. My transmitter has 'rest' mode, about 30sec/ 15sec cycle. Use it and practise the cycle, [if you have it]. We down loaded/printed the Tracker Manual from www.trackerradio.com As I said 7 1/2 miles , line of sight. Use the tiny ear phones for distance/windy conditions. It will take to within inches. I hope this helps. Ian.

Good at working close in.
Very compact form factor.
Poor on long distance/weak/lost signal searches.
No service available. If it breaks you are done.

Comes in three flavors.
----Classic: two channel, buy transmitters to fit the receiver. No source of new crystal to change the receive channels.
----Maxima: multi channel
----Ultima: version built specifically for falconry at request of Merlin Systems.
Some versions had a jack in the front to hook up to a Yagi antenna.

Regards,
Thomas of the Desert

I have the tracker classic and itís been fine so far, only had to use it once but it worked a treat! Saying the she has never gone more than a mile away so canít comment on itís long distance capabilities but with its compact size and easy use itís perfect for my needs. Hope this helps
