    I'm not sure I understand. Does he want to amplify his natural voice or some kind of device to press a button that makes a sound? I've seen both and most of the stuff you need for either can be purchased from Radio Shack.

    How loud are "normal" things?
    A whispered conversation is 30db

    A normal conversation is 60db

    A city traffic 85db

    A snowmobile is 100db

    A rock concert is 110db



    Prolong exposure to 85 db can cause gradual hearing loss. And that a snowmobile with its 100 db has a recommendation of no more than 15 minutes' exposure without ear protection.
    Remember these horns are not Toys!

    I've shot with a man who uses a batttery operated remote door bell chime. He hangs the battery powered chime on his belt. He has the button taped to his forestock. DING-DONG the bird goes out. Make sure the one you get uses batteries in sender & receiver, has selection of chimes (you want a simple DING or DING DONG) .... about $15 to $20 bucks.

    I'm assuming you mean deaf/mute, not just deaf. Does he have a cell phone? If he does he could download a timer app that sets off a tone and vibrates at the end of the time. Most allow you to pick your own tone. You could even use a recorded pull tone. Put the phone in one of those hip holsters, tap the screen to start the timer and wait for the vibration/pull tone.

    you could make a simple pezio buzzer from radio shack and use a garage door pushbutton. a simple black box on your belt with a battery in it and the small garage opener would have a small battery in it.

    Either get him a small speaker that he can wear on his belt with a small microphone he can attache to his gun stock in front of his face like Jimmy Heller uses or get a whistle and glue the ball to the bottom of the chamber. The last approach gives you a single tone whistle that a small puff of breath will throw a target with voice calls. Saw it done by a guy who had lost his vocal cords and it worked great. Don't know where you get small speaker but probably Radio Shack could help. Good luck.

    Possibly a tape player or MP with with the word "PULL" only and a power button to activate it for each call and shot? I'd think that would be the cats meow for those that have voice problems?

    This topic was talked about within the last twelve months, I think. You may try searching T.S. archives. The best is searching for google portable loudspeakers or microphones.

    I've seen call devices operated by a switch clamped between the shooters teeth tripping a buzzer, a blow tube that trips a micro switch to recording calling pull. and a button attached to the forearm tripping a buzzer, all seemed to be home inventions.

    Like others have said, Radio shack is a good place to start other than google search. You may also try googling warning devices for the deaf as well.

    Maybe someone will ring in who uses such a device.
