The Digital Field Marshall 800 offers superior performance and amazingly small. Now equipped with Marshall latest generation HSL "Half Sized Loaded" Yagi antenna. The Field Marshall 800 offers the best performance of any VHF receiver. Giving the most sensitivity available in a one-piece compact, rugged and very small design.
The Digital Field Marshall 800 is the premium choice for the falconer looking for additional channel capacity on multiple bands as well as the smallest size of any full performance receiver available today.
This premium tracking receiver offers more sound volume from any position with speakers on top and bottom, an ultra-compact heavy-duty case design featuring a "Quick-Release" handle, LED front lighting of the control panel for night tracking, improved water resistance for use in wet weather, and the latest generation of Marshall's exclusive collapsible HSL yagi antenna.
Also, unique to the Digital Field Marshall is the addition of polyphase filters, our new noise floor reduction technology that reduces the background noise while increasing the effective range and tracking ease.
Frequency: 4 band selectable 216-219MHz, 200KHz per band, equipped with Half Size HSL Yagi
PICK UP MULTIPLE BANDS IN ONE RECEIVER
Since this receiver doesn't rely on crystals to determine the frequencies it can cover, it has more capacity and flexibility. An all-digital circuit allows the same receiver to pick up any frequencies on 4 bands (216 through 219 MHz). Allowing tracking of dog collars on 217, while falcon transmitters are on the classic 216 and 218 bands.
A broadened, smoothed tuning mechanism means that tuning into the signal is a pleasure and much faster than before.
Tuning with the tune knob is broad and is protected from accidental contact so it's not easily bumped off your tune setting when getting in and out of the vehicle.
Higher Sensitivity: With the Digital Field Marshall offers the industry's best sensitivity (improved by another 3dB over the prior generation), equal to that of the Stealth, long the gold standard of telemetry receivers. This means a significant increase in reception distance for the same transmitter.
The actual sound of the receiver has been improved through the elimination of harsh harmonics and distortion, making it easier to track weak signals and far more pleasant to listen to.
Three red LEDs illuminate the entire control panel for better clarity in the dark without compromising your night vision.
As great as it is to have a handle on long walks or when holding the receiver out the window, there's times when it's better without it. Greater portability and reduced size is achieved without the handle on a third axis.
So, how to have it both ways?
Answer: The Quick-release handle. Improved for even better ergonomics. Now, you can choose when to use it and when to put it away in another pocket. Even though it's tight and secure with its bracket mount, it takes only seconds to remove it using the thumb wheel screw-on design.
Those who've now used it, love it.
SPEAKERS ON TOP AND BOTTOM
Hold the receiver down waist high and you have a speaker facing up at you. Hold it up high for better reception and you still have a speaker facing down at you. By incorporating top and bottom speakers, the sound on the Field Marshall has optimal sound volume from all angles.
And yet it's also quiet where it needs to be: A narrow-band filtering system is employed rejects noise better without reducing your signal, so you hear the signal more clearly with less distracting background noise, even for the weakest signals.
More importantly, it has improved the sound's omni-directionality which means the volume doesn't change as you rotate the receiver, a definite problem in other receivers that leads to erroneous perception of the signal strength in certain directions.
Nearby transmitters on other channels sometimes cause interference to your reception, but this receiver has special circuits to minimize the effect.
The improved rejection of noise near power lines means you can hear weak signals better and increase your range.
Better Range Estimation: The range settings (Medium and Near) have been adjusted so that you know it's time to start walking. You can therefore switch between these in most situations to get a better idea of how far from you the bird or dog really is.
HIGH-END PACKAGING AND ERGONOMICS
Electronics are housed in a robust case machined from a solid block of aircraft aluminum.
Purposely made for heavy use outdoors, this tracking receiver is designed to give you more years of trouble free operation through the widest range of temperatures, travel and weather than any other. Sealed connectors, mylar speakers, overlapping seams all make this receiver the most durable design now on the market.
In addition to all the performance improvements made to the Digital Field Marshall, our engineers redesigned and shrunk the receiver board to about 20% less total area, with everything fitting inside the case much more efficiently. We then asked our design team to "vacuum pack" the case down to the absolute minimum required, with no wasted airspace on the inside, no needless bulk on the outside. The result is a smaller overall receiver.
With the handle removed, the slimmed down design fits even better in your hand. Designing the outer case to be hand-held required we make additional changes, like a larger radius on all corners, and counter-sinking the earphone and power jacks to make them flush with the surface of the case, all of which just makes it feel more like an over-sized iPod in your hand.
Turns out the case is much more stout and rugged than even the previous generation Marshall receivers.
Improving the shielding on the case also means an improvement in how the antenna works for you. It's simple now to track up to within inches of a transmitter lost in the grass with the same pin-point directionality you get at a distance. The full-size three element yagi gives the best range and directionality of any antenna, and reduces the "back lobe" which sometimes fools people into tracking 180 degrees backward, in the wrong direction.
It's also designed to use six AAA batteries, available almost anywhere and inexpensive to replace for low operating costs.
Using newest generation electronic components and creative packaging allows us to fit a lot into a small space. And, our commitment has always been to using aluminum alloys which have the maximum strength to weight ratios makes this receiver as light and strong as technically possible.
EASY TO TAKE WITH YOU IN THE FIELD
A key mechanical design breakthrough of all Marshall receivers is the collapsible yagi antenna. The full-sized three element antenna can be reduced in size by half when fully closed.
When collapsed down into its stowaway position, and put into its holster (included with every new receiver), the new Field Marshall makes a small and compact piece of equipment to take with you into the field. With the new HSL Yagi, it literally becomes a "pocket receiver."
SMALLER "HALF SIZE LOADED" YAGI ANTENNA
Marshall pioneered the collapsible yagi nearly 2 decades ago. And we've kept the pressure on in developing the most advanced 3 element yagi in the world with our new HSL Yagi. We kept the same, field proven, collapsible, three-element directional antenna design for maximum directionality, critical when searching for a lost falcon. But with the HSL yagi, we've figured out a way to maintain virtually the same performance while reducing the overall form factor by 50%. This incredible reduction in size, a huge step forward in ease of use, is now small enough to be used practically inside a vehicle).
