    I might be in the wrong place and I apologize for it but there are more people here than just about anywhere else and thought I might get an answerhere a little faster But anyway Has anybody ever heard of a Sportsman 1202 bator? If so how old are they and do they have all the good stuff that is on the 1502 Any help on this will be deeply appreciated Thanx:D

    No idea, but you might try posting this in the "incubating and hatching" section, think you'd get more replies there.

    I have one and love it. The only diff is the computer on the new sportsman and you can add one for around $70.

    No there is no reference just talk from some friends of mine and am just trying to find out about them Pretty much have figured out they are the same thing as the 1502 just with a updated computer Kinda like a prototype to the 1502

    Mine is made of plywood and holds temps rock sold. I had a 5 hour power outage and it did not even slow the hatch down. The temp only droped by 5 deg. I have a friend who has a new sportsman and after looking at mine would not hesitate to buy one. It works just as well as hers.
    I will be putting the computer in mine here in a month or two. As soon as I can stop hatching for a couple weeks. LOL

    By the way if you go to the GQF website there is complete instrutions there on the 1202.
