Marshall Aluminum Tail-Pieces

These are the new generation, ultra-lightweight, solder-free, tail-mount replacement pieces that are now used by so many falconers world-wide. Machined in-house here at Marshall Radio from a special aircraft aluminum alloy, then tumbled for a smooth surface and anodized for color and protection, they are 1/3 the weight of the soldered brass predecessor.

Designed to match the elliptical shape of the quill when closed, the final result when crimping with the Tool is a snug fit without risk of damage. 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.

TrackPack Mounting System

thumb_Trackpack-logoThe backpack mounting method has been used in various ways by research biolgists for many years, with some better than others. Mark Williams of Alberta Canada refined the best basic design and proved its viability for falconry. This figure eight approach was further simplified and put in to production by Marshall Radio as the "TrackPack Mounting system" to add yet a fourth mounting method to choose from. In just seven years it has become a widely used mounting option by falconers all over the world. The TrackPack is the 'ready-to-go kit' for the backpack mounting method. 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.

You can follow the installation process shown in our latest video here: English : Spanish

There are now three sizes: Regular size accomodates all transmitters, a 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.

Spare Antenna

A straight antenna is important to the process of producing a strong signal. If your antennas are kinked, curled and have been straightened out for the last time, you might consider getting a new one to maintain peak performance. Field replaceable antennas screw directly on to the transmitter antenna stud.

RT+ and PowerMax use a 2-56 threaded 6061 aluminum ferrule with 90 lb test nylon coated stainless steel cable. The Micro uses a 0-80 thread aluminum ferrule, and comes in two gauges (comes with light, but can use regular for larger birds)

Book: Gyrfalcon by Emma Ford

"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.

Book: The Flying of Falcons

Authors: Ed Pitcher and Ricardo Velarde

396 Pages: This is the new American Falconry book that's causing falconers to re-think their art, 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 Daryl Peterson compliment the content well.
