I need one. My Transolve beeper that I use for most HPR applications will
not fit in my Estes Mean Machine I will be flying at LDRS on a H210. I
really want to have a beeper to use to ease recovery. Will anyone be vending
Make sure you bring your own battery with you for it Stephen. The Pratt
Microbeacon requires a 'weird' battery from Radioshack. I can't remember
what type of battery it is right off hand, but suffice to say it might be
hard to find at the range.
Um. I don't think Ross has any. Check with Ken at Performance Hobbies;
I try to keep him pretty well supplied.
I could send you a couple via First Class Mail, and they would
certainly get there within two days. I just Express Mailed an order to
the Wichita Airport Hilton for a customer. I would hate to use Express
Mail to send you two $10 products, since the shipping would be
$18...almost the cost of the stuff. They will hold your First Class
mail at the desk of the hotel for you, so that would be a safe bet.
Let me know if you want to try it. I've got a summer camp building
session all day today, but I could get it in the mail tonight.
Oh, since someone mentioned it, I also have the batteries in stock.
It's not wierd at all. It's a 12v "lighter" battery, about the same size as
an N cell. It's also used in car alarm remotes, many altimeters, and even
the AYUCR that runs my pencam. IIRC the industry standard part number is
23A. While there seem to be half a dozen or more different brands, they all
appear to be identical and seem to be made in the same factory in China.
They can be had for under $1 if you look around.

Yes, but it also shows Doug's customer service attitude and may help others
who are lurking and wondering how to get the device. Doug doesn't abuse this
