Good luck with it Andy, sure you will work it out bruv and find it very useful.
Was always against Ets myself as I thought it gave an unfair advantage to those with money and for me I felt it took away part of the fun.
I can now see that it is progress and we can't, and shouldn't stop that. It obviously has many advantages and is a very useful system. Unfortunately I won't be able to afford one myself just yet (need to get a loft first :lol: ) so will stick to old way for now.
On the ring Andy I had a stray in Sunday with an ets ring on, the phone number was on the ets ring. She did also have a yellow marker ring on above the ets and I have to say it didn't look particularly comfortable.

Looks like your birds are coming well Magic, well done fella.

Funny that you should mention that Trench. Due to family illness pigeon racing had to take a back seat until I retired from work in September '14 I have been using the ETS since the beginning of the 2015 season. There was something missing so this year I reverted back to my T3 and the spark was rekindled. I loved every minute of it, the long waits for birds off the Channel, getting my meals and endless cuppas brought out to me, the silent praying in the loft for a quick trap etc. etc.
Without that excitement the sport, and as you rightly put it, the fun, would be lost to me.
Yes the ETS is progress but for me 'old ways are best' on race days.
Aim for the Moon, even if you miss you will land among the stars.

I hear what your saying magic but Iv'e found the opposite, when we raced with a T3 and open door the birds came and you would have to go in clock them and then lock them in with there hens by then there would be another one there and so on so you would not see them come and that's what I like to see them fold up and trap is where I get the buzz now with ETS I can see them all

I do agree with you bruv and Magic but it does give a bit of flexibility, especially as I work Saturdays and although I aim to be out there to watch them back if I do get called away I'm not going to miss any. I have my own pet shop and live above, with the pigeons in the back garden, but will probably be running up and down into the shop. I certainly wouldn't be able to be away from the shop all day, so this way at least I'll know when the later ones arrive.
Hopefully all up and running and ready to go.

Hope you leave every other Bob down,to steady them down before entering! On Race Day
When I first used Ets,I to had my bob wires up,until I had a hen fly straight in through the trap without touching the pad.
Still don't know how she managed it :?
Had to Nash in the loft sharpish and catch her...and put her over the pad.
Same thing happened to Ad Schaerlaeckens on his DVD with a hen :lol:
Enjoy using it,one Great bit of kit!!!

I usually have most of the wires down. They were up when I took the photo as they were out exercising.
