Based on the description, this sounds like the device advertised on page 6
of the current (August) Sprocketry.

I'll quote from the ad, although I have no connection with this company
other than having seen their ad, etc., etc.

        20 mile air range
        2 mile ground range
        4 gram launch weight (including battery)
        3 element directional antenna (on receiver)

No price is given, but they offer a free catalog. The company is:

        Jim Walston Retrieval Systems

        Smyrna, GA  30082
        Ph: (404) 434-4905
         or (800) 657-4672
