BatBox III for sale on ebay

Hello,
In case anyone's interested..
I've just posted a BatBox III, heterodyne detector on ebay, together with "The Bat detective" identification guide book and CD.
Excellent, inexpensive "starter kit" for anyone wanting to identify bats.

PM for particulars

Best of luck,
Peter Jones

Hi Jos

About 130-140 new. I've used them, or similar, in the past. It'll allow you to tell the difference between pippistrelles and so on. It's really a bog-standard box. Good fun if you go for a wander above or below ground.

Also included is the Bat Detective book and CD which is 19.95 when purchased new, and will enable you to identify the following UK bats using the batbox:

"Species featured: Pipistrelle (Pipistrellus pipistrellus), Serotine (Eptesticus serotinus), Noctule (Nyctalus noctula), Leisler's Bat (Nyctalus leisleri), Long-eared bats (Plecotus auritus and Plecotus austriacus), Nathusius' Pipistrelle (Pipistrellus nathusii), Barbastelle (Barbastella barbastellus), Whiskered and Brandt's bats (Myotis mystacinus and brandtii), Daubenton's (Myotis daubentonii), Natterer's bat (Myotis nattereri), Bechstein's bat (Myotis bechsteinii), Greater horseshoe (Rhinolophus ferrumequinum), Lesser horseshoe (Rhiolophus hipposideros).

resurrecting old thread!

Someone has lent me a Batbox III but unfortunately there is no documentation or instructions. Could someone give me a quick idea of how I use it?! I tried on Google but everything seems to be geared to the Batbox IIID - the digital version. This is the original non-digital version.
Thanks,
Ken

Perhaps I'd better start a new thread!
