The intelligent Bricon Club-Master is the hub of the Bricon system

The complete Bricon club system comprises of the Club-Master unit, a GPS time receiver or a radio-clock, all necessary connection cables including a Unives compatibility cable, the 12 volt transformer power supply, a handbook and the Bricon Club Editor software package which includes a free club results calculator. Fully compliant with the Unives 1.7 protocol, the Bricon Club-Master system is fully compatible with all ETS brands.

It is acknowledged as the easiest club system to operate, with the large visual display giving step-by-step instructions in plain simple English that any club official can quickly understand.


  • Conduct the race basketing of pigeons for a race.
  • Set any electronic timing clock.
  • Read-out the clocking times from any ETS clock after a race.
  • Receive a time signal from an external source (satellite or radio signal).
  • Link electronic chip-rings to the life rings in conjunction with the Bricon Club Editor.
  • Send the fanciers data and ring details to the ETS clock.
  • Back-up the data on the clock to a computer via its USB connector.
  • Download free software updates for the Bricon system via an online computer.
  • Produce a full club race result shortly after the final clock is read.

The Bricon Club-Master system is available to any club where a fancier uses a Bricon system. The system is supplied to clubs on a long-term loan basis for as long as it continues to organise races. The only additional item required by the organisation is a compatible printer.


Each brand of ETS master system requires a compatible printer to print out the basketing list and clocking list. A specific printer is required because it must be able to compose its own pages without relying on a computer to carry out the role. Union rules specifically exclude a computer from being connected to the master during the basketing and read-out process in order to eliminate the opportunity of malicious software on the computer manipulating the times.

A compatible printer must have two specifications;
  • A parallel port (IEEE1284)
  • A print language of PCL6.

Printers that satisfy these requirements are generally regarded as business machines and continue to be produced by all leading printer manufacturers. These will be laser printers that will give excellent quality printing at a relatively low cost per page.
