A lot of fun!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Well, Byonics has done it again. After they gave us their PicCon controller for hidden transmitters, they give us this jewel. Very small. Runs on a 9 volt battery and the 2 meter frequency and tone/morse ID is completely programmable.
In the West Michigan area, we now have three of these, and we have a great time throwing them in a local park and sending folks to find them.
If you get one, take a look at Joe, K0OV's website, and he recommends a LMB case # KAB-3321 to hold the transmitter. You can buy this case directly from LMB at

Buy the second unit, it is painted black, and this becomes very hard to physically locate.
After many hunts looking for cars or people, trying to find these very small black boxes tossed in to a bush becomes a real challenge.
And don't think RF goes through vegation without being affected. (and watch out for poison-ivy!)
If you are in the Michigan area and are interested in DF and Fox Hunting, please join us at http://michiganfoxhunter.com and/or our Yahoo group: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MichiganFoxHunter/
We can see that these units will add a new dimension to traditional fox hunting.
