FOXPRO XR6 + Remote + 16 Sounds

As a professional in my trade I will
honestly say that for a person wanting to spend just
a few Rands and not to much the XR6 is the way to
go, it will (depending on currency at that time in
South Africa) will cost about R2700-00. If you had
to make up a local caller you won’t match this
The sounds you will need are the
standard jackal sounds at Foxpro, then ask for
Luscious lips, Scrub hare distress, lightning jack,
dying jack, lil jack, baby rabbit, lucky bird and
whatever others you like, but these are a must.
I use a
XR6 when I go to the farm in Sutherland, and I have
no electricity, the 4 battery’s in the XR6 last me
the 4 days I am at the farm, and I never need to
recharge till I go back home.
I use a FX3 and FX5 but the XR6 has a
place in my hunting bag on many journeys.
FOXPRO XR6 Features: All solid-state, no moving
parts. The sounds are stored in permanent 100 year
memory. No motors, belts, gears, or cogs. Completely
self-contained and hand held. No sound cards,
cassettes, speakers or wires to fuss with. The XR6
features dual speakers, for improved frequency
response and increased volume--an industry first!
One speaker is located in the front of the unit, and
the other is located in the rear, and each is
controlled with its own switch. YOU control whether
you want the front speaker to play, the rear speaker
to play, or BOTH speakers to play at the same time.
You can also plug in an external speaker (offered by
FOXPRO), and have all 3 speakers play at the same
time. Each unit comes standard with 16 calls of your
unit features virtually UNLIMITED sound loops with
128mb of digital storage - You pick 16! Foxpro loads
the calls and ships your unit. The built in USB port
allows for instant download of sounds—no
reader/writer necessary. The XR6 is designed to play
mp3, uncompressed wav files, and fxp (FoxPro’s own
proprietary file type!) for the highest quality
sound ever! The XR6 also comes standard with
FOXPRO's long-range TX-5LR remote control--the
industry's best remote control. Features of the
FX3's remote include the ability to instantly change
sounds, 100 step volume control with quick step for
ultra smooth transition in volume changes, a
pause/mute feature, and the ability to remotely
control FOXPRO's Jack-in-the-Box decoy. Other
features include an external audio jack, auxiliary
jack (decoy), low battery detector, and a charge
jack, which will double as a plug in for an optional
power pack (also offered by FOXPRO). Easy operation
even with gloves. Excellent low temperature
operation, down to -40 degrees. The XR6 will operate
from 4AA alkaline batteries, but the optional NiMH
batteries are recommended for optimum performance.
And, as always, FOXPRO's XR6 is made in the USA!
