That’s pretty neat. the directional mic might be a little over the top thoughIt's a directional microphone, came with a set of headphones. Sweep the area and listen for the loudest direction, then start walking/hunting. I'm glad I didn't leave the battery in it to leak and corrode everything.
No, Transroc-II absolutely was NOT a radio transmitter, it was an audio (sound waves) beeper, and the handheld thing was a directional sound wave amplifier. It was a travesty that they called it by that name.I think it uses a radio transmitter and receiver. Very limited range.
The original Transroc transmitted on CB channels 11 or 14.Transroc II.
They occasionally pop up on eBay.
I think it uses a radio transmitter and receiver. CB band, I believe. Very limited range.
My 15y memory remembers the same thing. Just loud(?) beeper and the microphone thing didn't help much. But putting a new microphone in it and a removable parabolic dish sounds like an interesting project.The sonic beacon worked fine, never could quite get the directional microphone to guide me to the rocket.
