The RT VHF is the longest range falconry transmitter made except the RT Turbo, and the one used more than any other by falconers in the Gulf.

This is a Premium transmitter that is trusted as the reliable standard.

For 2014, the RT now has the multi-colored LED to confirm operation and battery status.

Available frequencies: 215, 216, 217, 218, 219, 233, 234, 235, 236

 

 

 

Key Features

The Most Range Possible
The RT gives the most range of any falconry transmitter, except the new RT Turbo.

This model is well known for its very clean and clear signal. All the RF energy is very tightly focused to the exact frequency and none is lost through harmonics or sloppy design. In addition, Marshall has found a way to produce the most efficient circuit meaning the highest percentages of power from the battery are radiated back out through the antenna and not lost through heat and other inefficiencies.

Premium Packaging, best Case Designs
When you handle and closely inspect an RT transmitter, you will immediately know it is very different from the crude copies. The cases are precisely machined to very tight tolerances and the threads are always exact, consistent and therefore smooth. The batteries fit snug and secure with no rattle. The anodizing and coloring is high quality so the differences can be seen and felt.

Matched Sets for the VIP Customer
The RT VHF can be arranged for you in sequential numbered sets of ten. These individual groups can be arranged so they are each unique with no conflicts. The Field Marshall or Stealth receivers can also track the transmitters from the other groups in the hunting party when needed.

Marshall can provide custom sets of exclusive frequencies for VIP Groups that are a one-of-a-kind, and unique to their group only.

Best Battery life
It is difficult to achieve high power, small size and long battery life all at the same time. Using a single 1/3N three-volt lithium battery, the RT runs at high power for seven (7) days.

Very simple Tail Mount Design
Each of the tail springs are uniformly bent to exact tolerances and then heat treated for maximum strength. They are designed to perfectly match the Marshall tail pieces, making them secure on the falcon, yet giving just enough clearance needed for the falconer to quickly remove the transmitter with a smooth and simple action.

Best Warranty
Each transmitter comes with a 30-day Satisfaction Guarantee and a Three Year Warrantee. If the transmitter fails to meet your expectaions for any reason, simply return it to us directly or an Authorized Distributor in your country and we will repair or replace it. Marshall Radio has earned a reputation in the Gulf for supporting all their products and keeping Customers happy.

Customers Say

Mohammed-Al-BowardiFor more than thirty years, we have purchased and tested transmitters from every company who has ever made a falconry transmitter. What I can say is this: that the signal on all the others is like a flashlight. The signal from the Marshall RT is like a Laser Beam. It is what we use now.

Eisa-AlmazroueiMany people are asking me all the time which transmitters have the best range, which receiver I choose and why, and I tell them you are the best!

Q&A

Why do you offer a rapid pulse option for RT Standard?
This is a simple feature that falconers in other parts of the world have come to enjoy because it lets them track faster. And we designed the operation so that the battery life is the same. After six hours of running (or twelve, or more, if you choose), the transmitter resumes the regular pulse rate of 52ppm (about once per second). It is a feature that is programmed, which means if you want to try it you can. And if you do not like it, we can restore it to the standard pulse rate for you.

How far will the RT Standard give a signal in the desert?

Customers have tested it to over 50 kilos. We have tested it from the top of Jebel Hafeet near Al Ain and had a good signal as far away as Abu Dhabi. Other places it could be much less, but it will always be the most range of any transmitter in each place it is tested or used.

Why do I sometimes get over 30 kilos and then other times only 5?

Since the RT Standard transmitters do not change in power, it could either be the position of the transmitter at different times, or the fact that where you are standing is higher or lower at different times.

One reason could be that if you are lower than the falcon, there might be hills or obstructions that are blocking the signal.



Searching-on-top-of-hill

When you get up high, using anything you can, your range will greatly increase and the signal can become strong again.



Mountain-Illustration

Even though it may not seem that there are any hills close by or in front of you, there could still be a slight rise or change in elevation in the distance between you and the transmitter that is somehow blocking or reducing the range of the signal.


Diagram-shadow

Here we see an illustration how you might not get a signal close to the bird, because you are in what is called the Radio Shadow with a hill blocking the transmitter signal. But by getting higher, you can hear the signal again, even though you are farther away.

 

Diffraction-Illustrated

Remember also that each of the different bands will perform differently when you are behind a hill or mountain. The lower frequencies are able to "bend" over hilltops better than the higher ones. Sand dunes do not block signals as much as rocky hills do, and moreso if there is moisture in the ground.

Why would I want to order and use the magnetic switch feature?
This option was originally created for falconers who had many birds in the vehicle and needed to turn off the transmitters when searching for a weak signal of a lost bird. The magnetic tap off switch made it so you did not have to remove the transmitter from each falcon to turn it off, or back on again.

In other parts of the world, falconers like to use the magnetic switch so they can leave the transmitters mounted on the falcon at all times and tap it on just before the flight. This is also a great convenience.

The magnetic switch is an option and you can order your RT Standard with, or without it.

What is the difference between the Marshall tail-pieces and the cheaper ones from Pakistan?
Two things: the correct softness/hardness of the metal alloy, which allows just the right amount of bending during installation without breaking and the precision of the finished piece making it very precise every time.
