I recently built an e-caller. For those of you who don't know what one is, it is a MP3 player with an amplifier followed by a good speaker. I purchased a MP3 player from Fry's Electronics for $30. The amplifier I got from Radio Shack and the speaker is an old Motorola Mobile Radio speaker. The Motorola speaker has an excellent efficiency and the sound pressure level must be at least 100bd/watt - maybe higher. The sounds from this simple e-caller are excellent. I download sound files from Varmit AL's web site (he gives them away) and loaded them on the MP3. What is really nice about this setup is that I used a 100ft long speaker cable. This length allows me to sit away from the sound and ball/furry thingie decoy. Keeping the coyote's focus away from me is a big help. Have any of you tried building your own caller?
I also purchased a Mini-Phantom digital caller and amplified speaker. while it is not as load as the homemade e-caller, I believe it is loud enough for most all of the hunting I do. I am interested in finding out if others have used the Mini-Phantom.

Very Happy Way to go dude. You can call in the yotes. and listen to your music on the way home too. Sounds very versital. I like that idea. Sometimes the home grown ideas work better than the store bought stuff. Kuddos dude. Dave Smile

Yep, built an El Cheapo Caller. Used the directions on Varmint Al's site. I just need more practice at using it. Used the Creative labs Zen V MP3 player as it has a display that is easy to read outdoors.
