Garmin Astro 220 long range antenna?

Postby Taylor95 » Mon Feb 25, 2013 8:34 pm

I have this device for my coon dog and wondering what I could do to extend the range of tracking. I've seen the antennas but not to much experience so figured I'd ask. Thanks.

The truck mount antenna is the best by far.....

If you want it hand held the extended range antennas for the ASTRO will help, but nothing will compare to the truck mount.

Also look into the extended range antenna's for the collars. Im not sure which collars you have, but I put the extended range antennas on my DC 40 collars and got allot more range.

I hunt with fox hounds...and need to track pretty far sometimes. I have been able to get 3+ miles with the truck mount antenna and the extended range antennas on the DC 40's. This is in thick cut overs and swamps, so its not open land at all. I piggy back quick track collars(beep beep collars) on them also just in case the dogs end up out of range.

DUSupply can hook you up with what ever you need!!
