If I could sell a kidney, I'd have telemetry on my RT but I've still got all my body parts so I fly without it for now. Depending on if the IRS decides to give out tax returns this year, I may buy a set-up in the spring for next season.

Hey if you guys are going to have a heated debate please learn how to use the quote thing properly...
Drives me absolutely nuts.... every single time.

Telemetry Rules.. If you can get it get it. If you want to keep your bird you'll want it.
It is worth the money. I would of lost my current falcon several times already without it.
I did not fly telemetry on my RT's and Kestrels and you can yell at me for the honest reason that was that I could always go and trap another one. I did loose one of the best RT's I had because of that very reason.
But hey.. I went and trapped another one. He was chased off my resident Hag RT's. Similar to pecmoney
I will tell my apprentices that if they want to keep their bird to get the telemetry. It will not be a 100% doubtless retrieval but it increases your % significantly. ( It mainly depends on the users skill )
If you really want to keep your hawk. Utilize every advantage you have. If you plan on using it later.. learn how to use it now.
Bring on the im irresponsible comments.
I was using the quote the same as I always have but for some reason it wasnt working.
Anyone who cant afford to use telematry shouldnt be in the sport(get a job). Its kind of like saying "my bird has blody mutes but I cant afford to go to the vet"(get a job). Only a fool or a cheep bastard would take the chance.
