    The Marshall Turbo Transmitter is the most powerful and reliable falconry transmitter ever produced. It has the added benefit of a full color LED light to tell you how the Turbo is operating. Designed to efficiently use power, the Turbo varies its output power (range) to best match the conditions for recovering your falcon.

    Available frequencies:
    215, 216, 217, 218 & 219 MHz
    432, 433, 434, 435 & 436 MHz
    233, 234, 235, & 236 MHz

    Operating Modes:
    The Turbo transmitter is designed to deliver the best range possible during your hunt, but it is also able to reduce power to preserve battery life if your falcon is lost for a long period of time. To provide the easiest tracking, the Turbo operates in high power mode for 16 hours, this gives you the best chance to quickly recover your falcon. After 16 hours, the Turbo reduces the power output (still stronger than an RT Standard) to provide 5 full days of tracking. The LED light on the side of the Turbo tells you the current operating mode of the transmitter. Functions of the LED lights:

    Blue LED - Turbo Mode provides the maximum range (4 times the power of the RT Standard). Turbo mode also uses a lot of battery power to put out such a strong signal and therefore this mode only operates for 16 hours (with a fresh battery).

    Green LED - Standard Power Mode: While in this mode the power output is still better than an RT Standard.

    Yellow LED (and double beep): - Change Battery. The battery is getting low (2-3 days remaining).

    Red LED (and triple beep): - Battery is almost dead and you have less than 1 day remaining.

    Violet LED (and very slow flashing) - Sleeping. indicates that the transmitter has a battery installed, but is switched off with the magnet.

    Turbo Range The Turbo is designed to give best range while on your bird. It has been tested to over 300 kilos line-of-sight. Like any transmitter, range varies greatly with terrain. Tests have shown its range in hunting situations of western US deserts to be anywhere from 15 to 250 kilos, depending on height of transmitter, height of receiver, type of terrain and obstructions, and radio noise or interference. The Turbo has about twice (2X) the range of the benchmark Marshall RT transmitter.

    Using the Receiver:
    Signal from Turbo is strongest if receiver antenna is lined up in same orientation as Turbo antenna. Since a falcon on a perch keeps tail almost vertical, you will get best signal if holding receiver antenna with its elements vertical. However, there are cases when transmitter's antenna could be nearly horizontal and holding your receiver antenna horizontally will give the better result. Hint: If both horizontal and vertical signals can be heard, use horizontal for better pinpoint accuracy.

    Other Features:
    Tap-On /Tap-Off Magnetic Switch: The Turbo uses a tap-on/ tap-off magnetic switch to turn the transmitter on and off. The status of the transmitter is then indicated by the color of the LED light. Note: If you lose your magnet, or prefer to use your transmitter without this feature, the Turbo can be switched on and off by simply removing the battery.

    Battery Life: The Turbo will run 5 days continuously when a new battery is installed. You will receive a warning (yellow LED and double beep) when approximately 3 days life is remaining. This is when it is time to change the battery. You will receive a 2nd warning (Red LED) and triple beep when only 1 day of life is remaining.

    Marshall Radio Telemetry warrants that the Turbo transmitter will be free from defects of workmanship and materials for Three (3) Years from the date of purchase by end-user. Return defective transmitter directly to Marshall Radio Telemetry and we will repair or replace it and return it free of charge. However, we will not be responsible for damage from misuse or normal wear and tear incurred during use. Warranty is void if a non-Marshall Radio Telemetry antenna has been used. Under no circumstances will Marshall Radio be responsible for damages or loss beyond the value of the transmitter itself, including but not limited to the loss of a bird or lost time.

    FCC Notice: This device does not interfere with TV reception or Federal Government radar.
