TrailEyes™ Deer / Game Pager ™ 4 channel receiver when complete will have four
light emitting diodes LED’s which will light up when one of four remote game
monitors are tripped by a passing animal or human. If you know where each remote
monitor is located you can know when an animal or person is coming your way and
from which direction.
allow other observations without having to constantly look for a lighted LED a
pager vibrator will get your attention when any remote Hunting-Radar™ is
triggered. A push-off then push-reset will still the vibrator anytime you want.
light will continue to glow for the full transmitting time. If the light goes
off and then comes back on again the animal or person is walking very slowly or
maybe turned back around or there may be a second deer following. Be sure to
reset the vibrator or the next time the light will light but no vibration will
said, let’s get to fabrication. Open the new LINX relay enclosure and lay out your
indicating LED’s and switches. They can all be located on one end. Drill holes
to match mounting. I would put the green LED to the left of the power switch
with the four LED’s in the center and the Vibration stop/reset switch at the
other end. The vibrator off-reset switch needs to be easily accessible. The
LED’s can be cemented in place with silicone to make them waterproof.
The wiring diagram indicates a battery connector with
pigtails so if you are using the built-in battery case with contacts add your
own pigtails by:
Solder one end of one single conductor wire to the (+) battery terminal and run
it to one terminal (a) of switch S1.
from the other terminal (b) of S1 run and solder a wire to the (+) anode
terminal of all five LED’s and one terminal of the resistor R1.
the (-) cathode of the Green (Power On) LED jumper to the (-) terminal of the
9volt battery holder.
the other end of the resistor run another jumper to the vibration motor (+)
the other motor terminal jumper to one terminal of the push-off/push-on switch
the other terminal of switch S2 jumper to the anode end of the four diodes. This
is the end opposite the stripe.
the cathode (striped end) terminal of each diode you will need to run a jumper
to the cathode of its LED.
the cathode of the each LED pick one of the conductors of the cable and solder
it along with the jumper from the diode. It might be easier to twist the jumper
and cable conductor ends together before soldering. It might also be easier to
make this two wire connection at the diode instead of the LED.
the same with one wire of the cable at (b) terminal of switch S1.
Attach the other end of each conductor in the cable to its screw terminal in the
RF Receiver as indicated.
last of the wiring will be to jumper the receiver terminal’s 9, 8, 6, 4 & 2
Place the components where you want them and use epoxy to glue the vibration
motor into place. It is important to have good contact with the enclosure wall.
It might be a good idea to fabricate some wires or a small metal strap to hold
the motor and epoxy it all together. A cable tie and tie holder with self
adhesive could be used instead in epoxy to hold the motor in place but will be
less attention getting than a solid mount to the enclosure wall..
After the motor is in place and the adhesive sets, it might be a good idea to
use silicone to hold the wiring and diodes in place to prevent electrical
Install the battery and turn the switch S1 on and the green LED should Light up.
lists a second enclosure if you would rather mount the LED's, switches and
vibrator motor in it and use a cable of any length to connect with the larger
LINX box. This might make
the finished assembly more convenient and comfortable I suggest using stranded
wire for flexibility and long term service without breaking. Actually for greatest convenience a
multi-conductor cable with six or seven #24-22 gage stranded wires is ideal.
Think about how you plan to wear the receiver before cutting the cable to
length. One option would to wear the receiver in a side pocket or on a belt with
the indicator placed in a front shirt or jacket pocket another would be to strap
it on your left arm if Right handed-right arm if left handed. Another option
might be to wear the receiver in a shirt pocket and route the cable
through a coat sleeve to the control enclosure on your wrist.
prefer to mount everything in the receiver/relay box and just put it in a
large shirt chest pocket. This way the receiver is less noticeable by others. If
you need more than four channels you can take the PC boards out of two four
channel receivers and put them all in one electronics project box along with the
