MicroHunt Transmitter Enclosures and Complete Units

Plastic Enclosures

 

These are the type of enclosures that I started with and still use for training purposes. The Radio Shack enclosures are a perfect size to hold the MicroHunt, Battery, and have room to mount the BNC anntena connection and power switch.

The unit pictured above is one I use at antenna workshops so people can check out their newly built Tape Measure Beam kit. The antenna is not shown, but for short distances, a rubber ducky works just fine. For longer distances, I generally use a horizontal polarized cross dipole antenna.

The white adhesive backed tie wrap holder shown on the back of the transmitter is used to secure it to a branch, bush, etc. to help insure it does not walk off.Tie wraps work well but you will need a wire cutter to remove them.

The kit includes:

Quantity Description
 1  Radio Shack Plastic Enclosure, 2" x 3" x 1"
1  SPST Toggle Switch
 1 BNC Connector Bulkhead Mount
 3 Felt Pads (hold battery in place)
 3/4" x 1/2" Double Sided Sticky Tape (to mount MicroHunt)
 1  Adhesive backed Tie Wrap holder
 1  Length #24 wire w/Teflon sleeving (Connect MicroHunt to BNC Connector)

 

Metal Enclosures

 

These are the units I use on a regular basis for our shorter ARDF hunts (and were used at the Training Camp for the 2011 US ARDF Championships held in Albuquerque, NM.)

The kit includes:

Quantity  Description
 1 Die Cast Metal Enclosure, 2" x 4" x 1"
 1 SPST Toggle Switch
1 BNC Connector, Bulkhead Mount
 3 Felt Pads (to hold battery in place)
3/4" x 1/2"  Double Sided Sticky Tape (to mount MicroHunt)
 1  Eyebolt (for locking unit in place)
 1  Length #24 wire w/Teflon sleeving (Connect MicroHunt to BNC Connector)

 

Note: The Turnstile antennas page has a good horizontally polarized antenna for use with the MicroHunt transmitters.

Before I can ship out the assembled/tested units(s), I will need to know:

The MicroHunt page gives more information about the ordering information required.

Note: Because an amateur radio license is required to legally use these transmitters, the transmitters will ONLY be sold to licensed hams.

Delivery on the assembled/tested units usually runs 7 - 10 days after receipt of payment to get the unit(s) built, programmed, and tested.

Payment can be via check, money order, or PayPal.
