Transmitters

3 4 and 8 Button Transmitter Image The Transmitter is the hand held unit which provides Control of the machines by the user. They are available in three, four, and eight button units. They also count each target thrown by the customer, later to be retrieved by Club personnel.

They are powered by two each NIMH rechargeable batteries, which will provide about 150 hours of use. It is recommended that when the transmitter is returned to the Club House for counting, it should be connected to the charger. There is NO "On/Off Switch".

All transmitters require a Charging Base to maintain proper charge and performance of the transmitters.

3-Button Transmitter

3 Button Transmitter ImageTypically used to control two machines on a skeet field, or the three stations on a sporting clays course.

It has two Club Management programmed configurations. By simply changing an internal dip switch, this transmitter can do the following: 1. Have two singles buttons, each controlling one machine individually, and a doubles button which would activate a "True Pair". The targets are released when the buttons are depressed. 2. Have three singles buttons, each controlling an individual machine. The "Doubles Button" from the above configuration now controls a third single machine. Doubles in this configuration are thrown by simply depressing the first button desired, then BEFORE releasing it, depress the second button desired, the first can then be released while holding the second button, then when the second button is released, a true pair will be thrown.

When used on a skeet field, each Transmitter is programmed to the address of the Receivers on a single field. This eliminates cross-communication between fields.

When used on the sporting clays course, any appropriately programmed Transmitter can be used at every station on the sporting clays course, and will count every target thrown.

4-Button Transmitter

4 Button Transmitter ImageThis Transmitter would typically be used on a sporting clay layout, where up to 4 machines would be at each station. Doubles in this configuration are thrown by manipulating the buttons. Any combination can be selected.

8 Button Transmitter

8 Button Transmitter ImageThis Transmitter would be used on a five-stand or FITASC. The buttons control individual machines. Doubles in this configuration are thrown by manipulating the buttons. Any combination can be selected.

Special Features Models

Single Shooter Transmitter (Throat Mic)

Single Shooting Transmitter ImageAny of the Transmitters can be supplied with a throat mic that will allow a SINGLE shooter to throw targets without being assisted by a puller. The Club Management sets the Transmitter to the field address the shooter wishes to shoot on.

The shooter attaches the Transmitter to his belt, or places it into his shell pouch, etc. Then place the throat mic around his neck. The throat mic is connected to the Transmitter via a cord.

Select the target the shooter wishes to shoot; i.e. High House, by depressing the appropriate button on the Pickle head, then when he calls "pull" the target will be released on HIS CALL. It's just like having a Puller.

Since the Transmitter counts every target thrown, when the shooter returns the Transmitter to the club house, Management downloads the target count from the Transmitter into the Target Calculator and charges accordingly. This Transmitter can be configured to work on Skeet, 5-stand, or Sporting Clay venues.

Referee Transmitter

Referee Transmitter ImageAny of the above Transmitters can be configured to serve as a Referee model. The most likely application would be if you have pullers on skeet or sporting clays, or for registered referees on skeet or FITASC.

The Pickle Head, with the buttons, is connected to the Transmitter chassis via a retractile (curly) cord. The Transmitter chassis has a belt clip, so it can be attached to the referee's belt with only the Pickle Head being held. This allows the referee greater freedom for score keeping, etc.

Competition Referee Transmitter

Competition Referee Transmitter ImageThis is a 4-button Transmitter. Three of the buttons are used to control target release, such as: High, Low, and Doubles.

The fourth button is used to select the shooter I.D., which is displayed on the LED located adjacent to the bottom. It can be used in two modes:

1. For Tournament Skeet, the Referee uses the Competitive Referee Transmitter to activate the shooter transmitter, using the shooter I.D., and to set the target(s) to be thrown. Then the shooter, each of which is wearing a Transmitter with a throat mic, will release the target with the shooter call. This system removes the Referee from the Target Release influence. No more slow or fast pulls. The pull timing you get at 8:00 a.m. is the same at 5:00 p.m. Also there will be less mental strain on the Referee as they will not have to be so pressured to make adequate pulls.
The Competitive Referee Transmitter also counts every target thrown, so at the end of each day, target counts can be downloaded into the calculator. The gun club can accurately charge ALL targets to the event.

2. The Competitive Referee Transmitter can be used by a squad during recreational or practice shooting.

By indexing the shooter I.D. to reflect the shooter at the station, all targets shot by that shooter will be individually, up to 5 shooters, recorded, thus allowing Club Management to charge each shooter for exactly the number of targets shot, even though they may not shoot the same number of targets. This Transmitter could be used on either Skeet or Sporting Clay venues.

Competition shooter Transmitter

Competition Shooter Transmitter ImageThe shooter, each of which is wearing a Transmitter with a throat mic, will release the target with the shooter's call. This system removes the Referee from the Target Release influence. No more slow or fast pulls.

Using the throat mic, the shooter will not have to alter their normal shooting technique.
