BINOCULARS & A NAVIGATION (GPS) SYSTEM

I was in need of new binoculars and a navigation (GPS) system. I located, with the advise of a neighbour who is a watersports enthusiast, the following supplier who has a very large range of items at good prices: - Compass Watersports, Ridout Yard, Great Cheverall, Devizes Wilts, SN10 5XZ, Tel 1380 813100. I bought a pair of Compass Binocom 7 x 50's at £99.50. Several others have seen the bins. and decided that they must have a pair as well! These bins appear to a loss leader and are as good as others at twice the price. Compass Website

MODEL BOXES

When I needed a new model box I went to ABS Cases. They built me a custom made box that has more than repaid it's cost. See details Model Boxes quite a number of others have been there and had similar excellent experience.

BIOTRACK RETRIEVAL SYSTEMS

A large number of use the Biotrack radio tracking systems. My own Biotrack system is approaching twenty years old. Biotrack were taken over by an American company a year or so back, a result of this take over was that the technology we needed was phased out. Biotrack have been very good to us and for a number of years they have been able to continue to support our equipment. However the technology has moved on and Biotrack no longer have the parts and the expertise has retired from their company. 

So where from here?  So if or when your Biotrack receiver dies take a look at  LL Electronics Website they are based in the USA.
