Editors Note.... Please excuse the quality of the images
unfortunately they are the what has been supplied.

Select ACTIVE MICROPHONE $45 (plus $5.00 post).
This device can be used with any tape recorder to improve the sound pickup.
Most micro-cassette recorders are useless when left in your pocket or in a room. They don't pick up voices very well at all. This active microphone turns them into superb performers.

Select BUG DETECTOR 2000 BD-2000 $150 (plus $5.00 Post).
Detects transmitting bugs in a room, car, office or telephone. The unit works on the wide-band principle of RF detection. It is switched on & the antenna extended. With a sweeping motion the antenna is probed into all parts of the room. The unit will give a feedback whistle when a bug is detected.
The volume control is turned down and a meter on the detector indicates the relative strength of the bug. In this way you can 'home in' on the exact location of any transmitting device.
For phone use: Wind the telephone cord about 4 times around the antenna and place the mouth-piece of the phone to the speaker of the detector. A feedback whistle will indicate any RF bug that is on the line within 20 metres.
Be sure to test every phone as some bugs are designed to operate on one specific extension only.

Select CAR TRACKING TRANSMITTER CT-03 $85.00 & $95 (plus $5.00 post).
Has centrifugal switches to indicate when the car is turning left, right or stopping. comes with very strong magnets so you can clamp it to any metal object. or with double-sided sticky tape: Standard model $85.00. Magnetic model: $95.00

Select ELECTRONIC STETHOSCOPE $120 (plus $5.00 post).

Select INFINITY BUG (SIMPLE TYPE) IBR-00 $150.00 (plus $5.00 post).
This is the simplest version of our popular infinity bug. It is small enough to be placed in the base of the phone and works like this:

After making a call the other party hangs up. Instead of hanging up, you whistle every time you wish to use the bug. Size: 2cm x 3cm x 6cm. Also, all infinity devices must be connected to the line in the room you wish to listen to. You cannot place it on your own phone then dial someone else. The bug MUST be at the other end.

Select INFINITY BUG RING VERSION IBR-01 $250 (plus $5.00 pack and post).
This unit is connected to the phone line and has a super-sensitive microphone and a complex circuit to detect a coded phone ring. It can be installed in a home, office or factory and is ideal for checking on the presence of staff or burglars etc.

It works like this: The unit is connected to the number to be monitored as per the instruction sheet accompanying it and a special note is made of the time intervals required to activate the device.

When you ring the monitored number you must let the phone ring for only one or two rings. At the receiving end, this will sound like the beginning of two rings. You then hang up and wait an exact number of seconds (as supplied on the instruction sheet), before calling the bug again. This time, when the phone starts to ring, the bug switches on and the bell does not sound at all.

Again you wait until you hear a click on the line. When you hear the click, whistle down the line and this will open up the bug and let you hear whatever is happening in the room being monitored. The sounds are clearer than if you were in the room and if someone picks up the phone, the bug automatically hangs up. The bug times-out after 5 minutes and can be immediately re-activated by whistling to keep the line open. You can hang up at any time. The bug works on both decadic and DTMF (rotary dial and tone phone systems).

The bug also works in the Simple Infinity Bug mode (see above).
