The Protracker® Radio Frequency Transmitter Alpha is a rechargeable, lightweight, water resistant transmitter that disengages from the arrow upon impact; not affecting penetration and allowing for pass-throughs. The transmitter hooks into the animal’s hide and begins sending Radio Frequency (RF) signals every three seconds for the duration of the battery life (18-20 hours). You will need the Protracker® Receiver to read and track the signal.
The Alpha model of the Radio Frequency Transmitter comes in a Bright Green color that is optimized for high visibility in low light conditions. It also features a High Tensile Strength Steel Hook with corrosion resistant nickel plating and three barbs for maximum durability and hold.
