Had the r-20 and ( "HAD"should be all that is said.... )I couldn't get more than a mile out of it with marshall collars. and a Marshall wand. It was howwver great to pinpiont at close range but After 2 f&ls, using wildlifes,using rd-400,and using a field marshall...,I am going back to Marshall and I am getting the Marshall 4000 reciever now. I want the best and will get it now.The 4000 is one awsome reciever.

I have a wildlife 1000 and believe it is the best with the possible exception of the Marshall, but both are over priced. I have used an icom r10, borrowed it from a friend for about a month while my 1000 was getting fixed. I really liked it, not quite the range but it worked good and was a lot lighter to pack. I do a lot of hiking on snowshoes cat hunting and after 7-8 hours the difference in weight between the big blue box and the icom is noticeable. Also the icom seems a lot more water resistant. Unfortunately they don't make the r10 anymore. Yaseu makes a similar model for a couple hundred bucks but I don't know anybody who has one. I've been thinking about trying one, the other Yaseu products i've used have been good, but I hate to be a guinea pig. Has anybody used the Yaseu?

I have both a Wildlife 1000 and R-10, Bought the R-10 becuase I was hunitng with a guy who ran 150-151. and frankly he had better dogs then me.. So I was alway running around with all my young dogs in my box looking for his dogs..

My personal experience..

Blue box is better for me, takes me less time to cycle through 4 dogs and figure out what the picture looks like, are all the dogs in the race?, did a Pup turn back?. where are they heading?? How fast are they moving out?. etc.

Hiking on foot, hard to beat the light weight advantages of the ICOM.. takes me a little longer, and I'm not as confident with it at distances.. but it normally gets me into hearing range..... Or zapping range!!! :roll:

theres a guy that I hunt with that has the r-10 and it does not get the range like the quick track boxes. I would rather have one of the quick track boxes over the icom any day.

Great Topic! All of this info has helped us out a bunch. We just started using an R-10 in New Mexico- alpine canyon type terrain. Getting real good range- about the same as my MN 10, and the ATT is perfect in the rims.
Any other advice out there?

Hey TrueBlue- This one has an external GRE Super Amp. in-between the receiver and the antenna.

And when you can't find your dogs- you can go in WFM mode, punch in 94 Rock and listen to the radio while waiting!

The pre-amp makes a world of diffeerence.Couldn't get by without it.I dial mine into one of the t.v stations sometimes when I am in bear camp to catch the evening news.Used it as a scanner too.
