PowerPoint Tracking Collar

The PowPowerPoint LogoerPoint Collar is a long range telemetry tracking collar with an activity switch that let's you know when the dog is on point or running. Is is designed and produced by Marshall Radio to be as small and lightweight as possible, yet rugged and reliable.

Intended for heavy and extended use, this collar runs for months on common, easy to find AA batteries. A small green LED flashes during normal use indicating the collar is running, but switches to red (and you'll also hear a double-beep warning on the receiver) when only 5 days life left.

Machined casing with tripled sealed waterproof construction guarantees maximum protection.

The PowerPoint Collar is availible in any frequency you need from 216.005 to 217.995

Available frequencies: 216, 217
Available light colors: red, amber, green, blue

Key Features

TOUGHEST CASE DESIGN
The case on the PowerPoint is not plastic but machined from a very strong aircraft aluminum alloy. It is of "unibody" single-piece construction. This collar is used day in and day out by Professional Trainers and Field Trialers throughout the US who require that it be bombproof.

On a dare, an F350 pickup was intentionally driven over the collar with no damage, other than a slight rock mark on the side.

USES AA BATTERIES

Instead of requiring the specialized and expensive batteries, this tracking collar is designed to use two common and easy to find AA batteries, from which the case takes its shape and size. Alkaline batteries are fine but the Lithium versions used for cameras are even better. They are very lightweight, and run better in very cold temperatures.

And you will never have the Collar shut off accidentally in the field due to the batteries running out (flat), because when there are still five days of run time, you'll hear a double-beep on your receiver. And if the collar is in your hand while turning it on or off, you'll notice the green running light also switches to red, indicating low battery mode.

SMALLEST SIZE

The PowerPoint Collar case has been reduced to the smallest size possible that can still accomodate two AA batteries. This means it is also very lightweight as a tracking collar designed for dogs.

It has a low-profile, neck-hugging design that does not catch on or impact objects encountered by the running dog in the field.

SAFETY LIGHTS AS AN OPTION

The PowerPoint HP Collar can be ordered with High-intensity Safety Lights, your choice of Red, Green, Orange or Blue. Three super bright LED lights on the collar help your dog be seen on a roadway at night, up to 3/4 mile away! These bright lights can be turned on or off with the tap of a magnet so you can turn them off during a Competition Hunt or if you'll be done tracking long before the sun sets.

REMOVABLE DESIGN

The housing is attached to the collar using four small screws. This means the collar can be switched to another collar if needed. One example of this is how many falconers put the PowerPoint onto their Training Collar to make a "Combo Collar" that saves space on the dog's neck and let's them use both devices on one.

USER REPLACABLE ANTENNA

If the antenna becomes worn or needs to be replaced, this design does not require you to send the collar in for the new antenna to be installed. We send the antenna to you. Following simple instructions, the new antenna can be installed in only a few minutes.

LONGEST RANGE

Marshall engineers discovered a unique way to boost the power of this tracking collar without needing to run at higher voltages (7v). Yet in inumerable field test comparisons, the PowerPoint reaches out farther than any other dog tracking collar in the market.

PROGRAMMABLE TO WORK ON YOUR RECEIVER

You can order your new PowerPoint to have the Point Mode be "slow and long" or "quick and fast." More and more falconers use the PowerPoint now as a key part of their equipment and have it set to a channel on their falconry receiver. Also, you can have it reprogrammed at a later date, to a different channel if needed.

You can order the PowerPoint in any of the following frequencies: 173, or  216 through 217 MHz.

Intended Use

KNOWING WHAT THE DOG IS DOING AT ALL TIMES

Many falconers have discovered the value of knowing what their dog is doing when he's out of sight. You can now tell if he's running, creeping, or locked up on point. The PowerPoint Collar has proven so reliable that falconers now put up their birds when they hear the on-point signal, then track into whever the dog is with their same receiver while the bird takes a high pitch.

INSURANCE ON YOUR DOG IN BIG COUNTRY

Whether it's an enthusiastic young dog that runs straight for the hills and is gone, or an accident with big canal or open mine out in the west, you'll have peace of mind at least knowing that you've now got the longest range tracking collar available on him to make a recovery.

Customers Say

"A good pointing dog collar is essential to success in grouse hawking. Often times you think you know where the dog is and they dissappear just over the horizon. In that situation, it's pretty hard to call them off point, even if you wanted to. So knowing both that they're on point AND where they are is a real bonus. I love my new Marshall HP pointing collar. It's quite an upgrade from what I'd been using.
Hubert Quade, Idaho

 


 

"One of the super good things is that your little light tells you when the batteries are getting weak. That's one of the big downfalls of the other collars, cause they can be working fine, and an hour later it's just dead. You got it then you don't and that's real frustrating to a hunter to be beeping his dog and then be getting nothing. I've had one and I've sent back several times under warranty, but doesn’t help you when it’s gone for several weeks.

"My old Johnson collars just keep getting weaker and weaker till it's gone, but that light on my Marshall collar tells me when it's weak and then all I have to do is reach in my truck and change 'em, I don't miss the hunt, I don't have to be without it several weeks. Those others, if you use them they're going to go out and have to be sent back long before the warranty out."

Marshall Loftin, LA


"I've tried just about all the brands... and there's no comparison. Marshall collars have a stronger signal and better direction, and use the easy to find, inexpensive AA batteries! And their receivers have amazing sensitivity and a three-step attenuation switch (Near/Medium/Far) so I can tell how far out my dogs really are. Quite simply, I go straight to my dogs.. and FAST ! Thanks Marshall Radio!"

Steve Lithgow, Way Cool Kennels


"I cannot begin to tell you how well the Marshall products have worked for us this year. At Grand Valley Kennels, we’ve tried all the tracking devices available on the market today. We can truly say with all sincerity, Marshall products outperform any tracking devices we have ever used. In a recent hunt, our dogs got deep very quick. We were able to not only track our dogs, but we were able to do so with pinpoint accuracy. When we finally got to our dogs, we were 8 miles from where we started!! In our neck of the woods, that is simply unbelievable! So it is easy for us to say that Marshall Radio Products are the absolute best tracking devices available. Simply put.... Longer range, pinpoint accuracy, less problems with collars and a company that stands behind its products. What more could you ask for. It's like this. You can track your dogs or you can spend all night trying to track your dogs. The choice is simple.... Marshall Radio Systems. The serious hunters' choice."

Tim Amey, Grand Valley Kennels


"I’ve used Marshall for 5 years now and this is the best system I’ve ever used. It’s got more range and yet it’s also easier to pinpoint the dogs. You can move it just inches to each side and tell, my friends that are with me are always impressed as hell. It’s pretty damn accurate. At first, I thought I’d have trouble with the quick-deploy antenna if I didn’t handle it with kid gloves. But I’ve used it (not abused it) for two going on three years, and it’s just click, click, click, open and close. It’s pretty damn durable."

RJ Marquart, Quick Silver Kennels


“Over the years, our agency has used every tracking system available, but when we started using the Marshall system last year, we were at first impressed with how small and tough the collars were. Others were made out of plastic, these are machined aluminum. Now we’re most impressed with how much range we get out of them. It’s just incredible. I bet over half the guys I watch using those tiny receivers head out in the wrong direction. Other friends still use the big blue box hanging around their neck and the hand-held yagi antenna with wingnuts. With my Marshall receiver, I’ve got the receiver out, found the signal, put it back in the holster and on my way while they’re still screwing together their antenna. Now they don’t even try, they just say to me, “OK, where’s the damn dogs.”

Tri-State Wildlife Management


I truly like your collars and so far nothing I have ever been around has tracked nearly as far. I always track one of your collars when my hounds get real far from me. The other day a hunter was with me and flipping through collars numbers and most of the hounds were real close. When he reached the hound that was wearing your collar he made the comment this hound must be in the truck! He even began looking right by the truck for him. I had to laugh at this and proceeded to explain the difference in collars. When I need to buy more collars you can bet I will be buying them from you.

I just wanted to let you know I am well pleased with the 2 collars that I received last week. They have great range 14 miles compared to quick track QTC XL .6 miles. And I like the design since it's not as bulky. I will be ordering more soon! Thanks

Q&A

Why would I want a tracking collar on my pointer?
Number one reason: insurance for a lost dog, same as your reasons to use telemetry on your falcons. Number two reason: to know what your dog is doing when out of sight. A dog locked up on point but just over the hill can cost valuable time. With the PowerPoint collar you hear when your dog is running, creeping or on point and you then know WHERE to go to find it.

It's been the product that most falconers didn't know they needed, until they used it, and then found they won't turn a dog loose without it.

How does the PowerPoint compare in range to the other falconry transmitters?
The dog collar is about 4 times more powerful.

Which is better to use in this collar: alkaline or lithium batteries?
Common AA alkaline batteries at 50 cents a piece are hard to beat for convenience and availability. But you can find AA in lithium (photo batteries) at most camera counters now, and they are extremely lightweight and last longer. The trade off is they do cost more. Both work well.

{youtube}45NyzE-5Wng{/youtube} Adjust the volume on your PC speakers as this video contains an audio track with the actual sound of the collar in use. The rapid pulse of a dog in motion changes to a slower, longer pulse when on point. This clip also demonstrates the sound when the dog is 'creeping' and the immediate response to changes in motion.
