    When you move the mics in handicap, there is no fumbling around with the cables. The real treat is when you take them out and put them away at the start and end of the day. There is also never any problems with the connectors as there are only a couple for each mic and you never take them apart. FYI they sell kits to update the wired units to the wireless.

    Sir/Madam, We manufacture the E R A D wireless units in Ft. Worth, Tx. Our phone number is 817-244-1761, email eradusa@earthlink.net. To the person wondering if you can use one mic on multiple fields. The answer is yes. Any transmitter can be used on any field by simply touching the "FLD" Field key, typing in the field number for example 6 (for field 6) and touching the "FLD" key again. The transmitter will now release birds only on field 6. Substitute any field number you want from 1 thru 250 and you can release birds on that field. They have a competition mode that allows the scorer to control the field with his/her's own transmitter. They can release birds for you or shut the field down so nobody can shoot. They can set a "KEY" number so only those persons with the key loaded into their transmitters can release birds etc, etc. The system has many different modes you can use it in. It also has a complete "Bird Management" mode that controls the sale of birds thru the units giving clubs complete control of all released birds. The system will handle Trap, Trap doubles, Trap handicap, Skeet, Skeet doubles, Skeet International, Sporting Clays, 5 Stand, beginner, intermediate, professional, Custom games, etc. You can set your own personal delay (these are very fast on the release) and most shooters don't shoot them on 0 (zero) delay. A transmitter uses 2 ea. CR2450 button cell batteries and battery life is in excess of 100,000 birds. The receiver requires NO external power and does NOT contain any batteries. Just plug it in, in place of the pull cord. This is only a few things that they will do. Cost for 1 receiver and 5 transmitters is (retail) $1562.00 USD shipped anywhere in the continintial US. Clubs receive a discount. You can by as many transmitters or receivers as you wish. You do not have to by them as a set (for a Field). Remember that when you go from station to station you get the exact same call since the transmitter (mic) goes with you. You can talk face to face with the mic(s) on and unless you hoot or holler real loud you will not release birds. The transmitters are the size of a credit card, a little over 1/4 inch thick and weigh a mere 1.80 ounces. By the end of the first round, you will never know you have it clipped on. Remember especially for Handicap. When you move from station to station there is NO moving of mic to deal with. Since there is no mics to deal with that means there are no wires to deal with. Since there are no mics and no wires that means the field is completely clean of anything but you. Just walk to your next yardage post. You don't care what yardage the shooter in front of you was at. The field has a completely different look, it is completely clean of obstructions.

    Thanks Greg Baack

    No problem. We appreciate you informing shooters and clubs about this new product. If shooters would spend a little time using them, I truly believe that they would realize how simple it makes shooting a round, especially if they own their own transmitter so they never have to take it off between rounds. The other thing it does for clubs is that it eliminates the set up and take down time of the wired systems. Simply open the door to the trap or skeet house(s), turn on the machine (which turns on the receiver) and you are ready to shoot. At the end of the day turn off the machine and close the door. If the club is supplying the transmitters rather than the shooters owning their own most of the clubs either buy a carrying case from us (we have a custom case just for the system) or use a pistol case for each field to put the transmitters in and carry them too and from the Club house. Since the receiver never needs to be removed from the trap house, once you mount it, its there forever. The receiver can be mounted inside the trap house and does NOT require any external antenna outside of the house. It is approx 4.5" x 6" x 1.5" thick and has a 7" antenna sticking out the end opposite the cord. It has a tab on each end that you can use to screw to the wall or just hang it on a peg. Plug it into the machine and you are ready to shoot. Not only does the system eliminate set up take down time, it also eliminates a significant amount of cost associated with maintaining wires and or mics and stands and compared to any other wireless system the battery costs between our system and other is a major cost factor.

    Thanks Greg
