The UplandHunter™ (Model SD-1850) offers a long list of features and benefits that reflect the company’s dedication to living up to its philosophy of providing hunters with “The Gear You’d Design.”
In keeping with the “upland” theme, the compact, ergonomic transmitter is finished in a bold UplandBlaze™ orange. This rugged, waterproof unit offers eight correction levels that are instantly selectable from the intensity dial. Delivering continuous or momentary stimulation is as simple as picking one of the two prominent buttons on the transmitter’s flat front. Both the transmitter and rugged, waterproof collar-receiver operate on rechargeable NiMH batteries. They also offer low-battery notice so a hunter is never caught in the field with an uncharged system. Together they provide up to ¾-mile of range for control of big-running dogs.
The waterproof beeper unit slides onto the collar strap and provides a tracking signal audible from up to 500 yards. The user can turn the beeper on and off or switch beeper run modes by using the transmitter’s side buttons. Run modes include Silent, a beep every five seconds or a beep every 10 seconds. In all modes, the beeper beeps once per second when the dog points. It also offers a choice of nine different tones, adjustable from the transmitter so the hunter can pick the one he can hear the best or finds most pleasant to the ear. The beeper operates on a long-life, user-replaceable lithium battery.
The UplandHunter™ 1850 can be used as a two-dog unit with the purchase of a second collar-receiver/beeper (Model SDR-BEEP). A toggle switch on the transmitter lets the user program the collars individually. Also available is the SD-AB Add-A-Beeper, which is the beeper unit only. The SD-AB can be added to any collar strap and can be operated with other SportDOG Brand® remote transmitters.
Suggested retail price for the UplandHunter™ 1850 is $399.95.
