I've noticed that when I'm out shooting 1400 yards, hits can be hard to call at times. It's far enough away there's no way I can hear it when I make a hit with the Grendel.

Here's my solution! It'll take a little tweaking, but I'm convinced I can get this to work. I taped a two way radio onto the back of the gong, and set it to VOX so it would key up the mic automatically. I put a rag between the gong and the radio to keep as much of the shock from the impact away as possible.




The only real drawback I noticed was that on VOX it would take a moment to activate the microphone, and sometimes I wouldn't hear anything on my end. A quick solution would be to tape down the mic button, and leave it always active. I'll try that next time!

This was done at 1000 yards just as a proof of concept. I have a hard enough time doing 1400 on a calm day, so with the wind today I decided 1000 would be good.



Granted this won't let me know where I'm hitting, but it will at least let me know if I'm hitting. And at 1400 yards, that's all I can ask!

You can get a baofeng UV5R for 30 bucks and it has the ability to adjust vox setting.

Ingenius....
I use a spotting scope with old IPhone4 through scope mount.  Dial into target.  1/4 turn back.  Can watch vapor trail all the way to target and splash.

That's a novel idea!  I like it!
