Making my own Remote E-Caller, Need MP3 Player ?

47 posts in this topic

My broadcast grade wireless mics work at well over a thousand feet so it depends on frequency range and power output.
Are there any toys you don't have :unsure: Im getting very jealous, between you and Mr Mister.Scott

Those wireless mics are or were work related. The frequencies are registered to me so another TV station can't use them. Since I don't do much TV work any more I should sell that stuff and buy more hunting junk! :(

Forkedhorn:Here are afew place's, Western Rivers has the best sounds.Western Riversmore soundsFind soundsA Boom Box with a remote should work great
OK, I'm thinking of building a caller myself and tried to download the sounds from Western Rivers. When I try to download them, they don't download as a MP3 or wav file. They download as a HTML file. What am I doing wrong? The calls from ewcalls worked great.

Lynn, I went to Western Rivers to try downloading theirs and didn't have any problem. I downloaded some of their crow calls. Just pick the call you want to download listen to it first if you want. It will only be a short version. Then go to download and right mouse click the download button. Then look up where it says Save Target As... Then left click on that and a prompt box will come up asking if you want to save the file name Crow or whatever mp3 file. Click save and it will download and you're done. Go on to your next one and so on.

You're right! Hell, I was right clicking everything BUT the Download button. It was clicking the button thinking that was how to download and then trying to right click. Just didn't try to right click the DL button. DUH! Thanks.

No problem Lynn, glad I could help out. Those are some pretty good sounds. I downloaded a few myself. :angry:

Go to Predatormastersforums.com. They have a ecaller section on their main forum page. There is about 128 pages to review, I know I have looked at them all. There is plenty of info there to answer any questions you may have. Im picking up the remainder of my parts at RS tomorrow so I should have mine up and calling in the next week or so. Maybe those that have home brew could bring them by the next meeting and we could look at each others ideas. Ill try to have mine. Nady 151 and 351 are very similar. 151=$ 80: 351=$120. 351 comes with an antenna already attatched and is a little smaller. Both need to have some type of imput made to connect to a battery source other than a solo 9v (doesnt last but about 30-40 min). There are plenty of websites that explain how to make all these pieces. If you email me I can get you all the files I have downloaded. I got an Amplivox from a person on PM site. It has 2 channels and an imput to power from a electric adapter, an easy way to connect battery packs. MP3 you really cant go wrong with just about any decent one you find. Stay away from the really cheap $20-40 versions as they may have a poor noise to signal ratio(??if this is the right term, just means as the volume goes up the signal gets alot worse). I picked mine up on eBay $50. Remember you don't need alot of storage. Im no expert but I have researched this alot. ShooterJohn is a TV camera guru, among being a reloading GOD, shooter extraordinaire etc etc :( so he can tell you more technical stuff a lot better than I. And the PM site is a wealth of knowledge as people have been building these for several years. Good luck. Scott

My Nady 151 LT arrived yesterday (bought it on EBay). The lavalier mic is hard wired into the unit and I didn't realize it when I bought it. Can I just clip the mic off of the end of the cord and add a 3.5mm jack to that? I know that sounds stupid, but my electronics days were over 20 years ago and I have forgotten so much now!Darren

damn! that wireless mic is the way to go. I have money, time and too much thought into my wireless caller and it STILL isn't finished yet! I really need to get off my arse and get 'er done.All that's really holding me up is the design of the transmitter case...

Just curious, How are you guys hooking the MP3 to the wireless mic? Is there a cord that will hook into your headphone jack on your MP3 and then another jack that fits the mic? Sounds like it should be a good idea if you could hook it all together.

I had to cut the lavalier mic off the end of the cord. Then I soldered a 3.5mm (1/8") jack that plugs into the headphone jack on my IPod. You keep the cord as close to the original length as possible since that is the antenna as well.Darren
