OK well I've started development of a long range target camera system. So far the transmitter and receiver sets look to be just what the doctor ordered. Tracy is helping our with a test camera and I'm working on a new antenna system that should be able to do 1500 yards line of site with no problem.

It's going to be a little different than that other system that is on the market. Final configuration is still under development but preliminary data is looking awesome. I might make these available soon for purchase once the tests are complete.

I've had that type idea for a long time. It would work great at my range -- mountain top to mountain top. I've been trying to get a camera hooked to my spotting scope. The problem with this idea is I can't find an affordable scope that is powerful enough to see the bullet strikes. Keep up the good work Mark.

Yeah that is part of the issue Shep, but the way this works is the camera is down range and it transmits the images back to you at the shooters position. It's better than a spotters scope it real time and depending on the lens and camera can also transmit the sound of the bullet striking the target.

I do suggest not putting the transmitter in line with the target but slightly to one side so that you don't hit it with a stray shot.

I'm currently developing 2 designs one where it's a use your camera type (as long as it has the ability to do what is needed) or buy the rig complete.

I'm working on the packaging for the transmitter and receiver, Also depending on the distance it will require a high gain antenna at the shooters position. I already have that figured out.

I've looked at several models and the prices vary a lot. One model good only for 1000 yd is $750 and the one thats good for a mile is $550 -- what type screen are you using -- laptop or mini tv?
