Accessories for Gulf Falconry
Premium equipment for the Gulf Falconer
Genuine Marshall Radio Accessories can help you protect and better use your tracking equipment.
Every item here has been made by Marshall to the same high quality standard as our transmitters and receivers or selected and offered by Marshall because they are the best.
For example, the Marshall tail-pieces are machined one at a time from a solid block of aluminum. This enables us to achieve a level of accuracy and precision that was unheard of in the past.
The Marshall desert Case not only protects your equipment from abuse and shock, but is waterproof and airtight as well, keeping out sand and dust when traveling through the desert.
When you choose Genuine Accessroies from Marshall Radio, you can be sure they are top quality because we consider every detail.
Adapted from a design used to protect expensive firearms, our Cordura softcase lets you keep the receiver and transmitters protected and all together in one convenient place.
Custom foam insert matches the profile of the receiver. Additional cut outs and internal pockets to keep all the small things where you can find them: extra batteries, antennas, battery tester, car adaptor, etc.
This simple and rugged case is designed to ride with you inside the vehicle.
Designed for the ultimate protection of your Marshall tracking system, his case takes protection to another level. Airtight, waterproof and pretty much bombproof, you can let this case tumble around the back of the Desert Expedition Vehicle, equipment safely inside, and spray it off at the carwash to look brand new again.
With custom foam inserts, this Hardcase lets you protect and keep the receiver and transmitters all together in one convenient, safe place.

Each Kit comes with one Tool and one regular Tail Feather Piece together with a Blank Tail Feather Piece of matching size that has not been annodized and laser engraved (i.e blank aluminum). Use the Blank piece to practice on a molted feather, before installing the finished tail mount on your falcon. Practice inserting and removing the transmitter on the practice feather to develop the right feel to the process and get better prepared to use the tail mount every day.
Designed to match exactly the elliptical shape of the quill when closed, the final result when crimping is a snug fit. It's also self-centering in the upright position on the feather. With the internal grooves machined on the inside of the crimped end, they are used by many without glue or epoxy. Clean yet permanent. Machined here at Marshall Radio to exacting tolerances, the Tail-piece Tool and Tail Feather Piece makes the process of installation quick and easy when used together.
Please specify the correct size, either Medium or Large, when making your order.
These are the lightweight, single-piece aluminum tail-mounts from Marshall Radio that are now used by so many falconers in the Gulf.
As shown in the image above, they are individually machined from a solid block of special aircraft aluminum alloy. They are then tumbled in a ceramic media to round off all sharp corners or edges and make the surface smooth. Finally, they are anodized for color and protection and laser engraved with the Marshall logo to ensure they are the Original and not a copy.
And, using the Marshall Installation tool (shown above), the installation is quick and easy.
There are 6 sizes to fit most all birds:
- Micro-Small: the original size for Merlins, Spars, Aplomados
- Micro-Medium: Medium size raptors (Perigrine, Harris', male Goshawks) where a Micro is to be used. Medium on the bottom, with Micro size on the top.

This is the 'ready-to-go kit' for the BackPack mounting method that is now successfully used by thousands of falconers worldwide. Starting with a gently curved Mounting Plate machined from UV-protected Delrin plastic, we add 36 inches of small width Teflon tubular ribbon and a small brass crimping ring produced just for this purpose that's internally threaded for maximum bite into the ribbon when making the final setting.
Simply use either flat needle-nose pliers or your existing MRT Tail-piece crimping tool to set the ring in place once the harness is correctly fitted.
There are now three sizes: Regular size accomodates all transmitters, the Micro size for very small birds that fits only the Micro transmitter, and the new XL (Eagle) size with 18 more inches of ribbon.
Also available is the Re-Installation Kit, containing 36 inches of Teflon ribbon and the threaded crimping ring. Choose one of these items from the drop-down list after clicking on the 'add to cart' button below.

Falconers have used OMNI's for many years to determine proximity from inside a moving vehicle as they cover an area tracking their birds. This model is a higher quality (slightly more gain) version of the well known design. Comes with 10 foot coax cable.
Our Wholesale prices are due to the volumes in which we buy batteries for both in-house testing/burn-in of every transmitter and sales worldwide.
Check back regularly since prices can change at any time.

A straight antenna is important to produce a strong signal. If your antennas are bent and damaged, it is best to replace it to be sure you are getting the strongest signal from your transmitter. Field replaceable antennas screw directly on to the transmitter antenna stud.
Just be sure to specify which transmitter and which frequency (216-219 are long and 433 are short)
If the Tail spring is bent or damaged, you can replace it.
Posts on the underside of the RT+ and Micro transmitters case allow you to easily change a damaged tail spring wire if needed. Replacement springs for the RT+ require a tiny washer.
Simply specify which one is needed when you order.
"To those who know and love her, the Gyrfalcon is something of an enigma. She shares some of the most inhospitable corners of our world, towering over the chilly wastes of the Arctic like a pale spirit. Yet in contrast to the frigidity of her native lands, the gyrfalcon inspires in man a burning passion - a passion to possess her."
- Emma Ford
This is the first full-color study dedicated to the species. It has been magnificently produced and richly illustrated with the finest historical paintings and sketches of the gyr, superb photography, and specially commissioned paintings by the celebrated British Raptor Artists Anthony Rhodes and Andrew Ellis.
The book has now become a collector's volume and a significant addition to any falconer's library to be enjoyed again and again.
Authors: Ed Pitcher and Ricardo Velarde
396 Pages: This is the new American Falconry book that's causing a stir worldwide. And getting enthusiastic praise. Once you have a chance to hold it in your hands and read it, you will know why. Following a young falcon's develpmental sequence, Ed explains why he strives to allow his birds to progress through the natural stages in order to develop the confidence, initiative and abilities nature intended, without the falconer getting in the way. The result is a captive-reared falcon with the "wild mind set" that flies and behaves and succeeds more like it's wild conterpart.
Not just another "How To" falconry book following the well-worn path of training a bird to perform a few desired behaviors, The Flying of Falcons contains original thinking and observations that will challenge the reader to re-evaluate his prior results as well as perhaps unsettling the certainty in more than a few experienced falconers own minds as they are persuaded to re-evaluate old ideas.
New artwork from Andrew Ellis, Bern Poppelmann and Darl Peterson compliment the content well.
