You could punch it up a couple of hours before the hunt and check it to be sure everything was cool. Just be sure you practice using the remote commands. I often forget and than panic if I don't have them written down.The guys at ctfoxhunter.com hide the unit for two weeks while hunters look for the unit in their spare time and to/from work, etc. Hunters send a tone command to activate the fox transmitter for a minute at a time. The rest of the time, the receiver just waits.During the summer, I leave the unit on my outside deck in the same mode for local hams to practice on. I only charge it from time to time when I think of it.Do you have a unit going yet?Mike----- Original Message -----From: bob_kd8hnfSent: Friday, February 11, 2011 2:19 AMSubject: [MichiganFoxHunter] Hidden Transmitter
How long will the batteries last in your transmitter?
I am thinking about hiding the transmitter for a week. Then remotely turning it on after a week of snow fall to help cover my tracks.
What do you think.
