cheap locator beeper

3 posts in this topic

Does anybody know where i can get a beeper collar for a pointer that only beeps when you push a button I don't want one that beeps all the time and also i don't want a shock collar with that feature just something that i can locate my dod in cattails when it is pointing i use a bell but if I loose the dog instead of looking it would be nice just to push a button and get to the area where the dog is.

I am pretty sure such a model does not exist as a stand alone unit, but I could be wrong. I know you can buy certain models of e-collars that also have the beeper as a separate unit that can be controlled by the transmitter, but I do not think there is a stand alone unit with a hand transmitter.

I purchased a cheap beeper collar and it lasted half a season and it stopped working in the middle of a trip to the Dakotas (with no back-up). Not good. I went with the TriTronics add-on beeper collar, I am not sure what your definition of cheap is? This add-on beeper collar was about $100, I believe. It has lasted through 2 1/2 seasons now. It has different settings and you can set it to point only mode. It only beeps when the dog stops. However, it has to be turned on and off at the collar - no transmitter. If I had purchased the correct model of TriTronics collar, I could have controlled it with the transmitter. Live and learn.

I hope some else can help you find what you are looking for, but I never could locate such a model.

I haven't heard of such an item before either, but you can get a GPS tracker for the dogs.

    • They are drumming like crazy now. In fact, I even hear them at night. My wife said when she was a teenager growing up in rural Wisconsin, she always thought that drumming sound was the nearby powerstation.    
    • Lilac blooms are here, just haven't opened. Hearing some reports of good finds in the Houston and Lewiston areas of MN. I checked some new public areas today on the MN side. Could be decent later but too cold and wet right now. Will check some early season spots tomorrow but won't hope for much with the cold weather.
    • Nice!  Must have seemed forever waiting.
    • 6 months later and he is home
    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
