The new Tritronics Upland Beeper is the lastest in beeper technology. It offers a unique, low-tone that is audible for up to 1/4, depending on conditions. The beeper is very light, weighing in at 2/6 ounces with overall dimensions of 1 5/8" high x 2 3/4" long. It offers a simple, one-button operation allowing easy selection between eight different hunt and point, or point only modes.
The new G3 Upland Beeper can be remotely operated by and Pro or Field series transmitters (remote control range - 1 mile) of the any Sport transmitter (remote control range - 1/2 mile), and can be simply operated as a stand along unit. It is completely waterproof and utilizes a long-life, replaceable CR123A battery. Made in the USA with a one year manufacturers warranty.
The Tri-Tronics G3 Upland Beeper can work as a stand-alone unit to locate your pointing dog in thick cover and hilly terrain or operate along with a remote training collar for maximum control in the field. This is an economical way to expand the functionality of your remote training collar that does not have a built-in beeper function.
When used with the Pro or Field series Tritronics transmitters, you can turn the beeper unit on and off remotely, as well as activate the locator feature even when the unit is on mute. This is also available with the Sport Upland G3 and Upland Special G3 transmitters.
You can select either HUNT or POINT mode on the beeper unit, with a Green LED light indicating POINT and a Red LED light showing HUNT right on the device. Each mode has 8 individual settings , combining the blinking of the unitís light, a low pitch tone easily audible within ľ of a mile, or in POINT mode you can opt to replace the tone with an imitation Hawk Scream to foil the efforts of even the wiliest rooster. HUNT mode beeps every 4 seconds while the dog is moving. POINT mode either beeps every second while the dog is on point, or the Hawk Scream will sound every 5 seconds.
Canít find your dog? The Tri-Tronics G3 Upland Beeper has a quick solution. Simply hold down the button that operates the beeper on your compatible transmitter and the unit on the collar will produce a series of beeps as long as you hold down the button, for up to 8 seconds per transmitter button hold-down.
A 1-inch wide collar is included with the device, but if you are using the beeper unit alone, we recommend using the Tritronics Dummy Collar to counterbalance the weight of the beeper and keep it behind the dogís head to protect its ears http://www.lcsupply.com/G2-G3-Dummy-Collar-Tritronics/productinfo/G2DCX/. The beeper can easily be looped on to an existing Tri-Tronics remote training collar for a one-collar solution.

As with any new dog training and handling tool, you must condition your dog to the device prior to live action in the field. Take the dog to a game preserve or purchase birds from your local game bird breeder and plant them either on private land used with permission or sanctioned dog training wildlife management areas. Place a piece of duct tape over the speaker on the unit for the first half of your training session to muffle the sound. Remove the duct tape during the second half to let the dog get used to the full sound of the device.
I used these beepers for the first time last season, and they were effective and reliable. I added a beeper to each of my collars with my Pro 500 G3 system, and both were easy to program to the collars. It is not as user friendly as my old Dogtra 2002 T&B was, but once I get used to using the tritronics, things run smoothly. It is also nice to be able to remove the beeper from the collar when not needed to avoid unneccessary wear and tear.
