From PocketWizard: Sports Photographers around the world can now have Custom IDs installed in their Plus III radios. So. Burlington, VT – January 16, 2015
– LPA Design, manufacturers of PocketWizard Photo Products, announces the immediate availability of Custom IDs for Plus III radios. In light of the recent retirement of the MultiMAX Transceiver, we felt it was very important to offer a Custom ID solution for Sports Shooters and other photographers who shoot in crowded venues.
What is a Custom ID? It is a private digital code that no one can trigger but you. It is a premium service offered exclusively by PocketWizard. In hyper-crowded shooting environments, such as large sporting events, Custom IDs give you the confidence to know that your remote flash or camera can only be triggered by you and not any other photographer. It is a unique code installed on top of an existing PocketWizard frequency replacing one of your normal Channels with your new custom code and frequency combination.
No other manufacturer offers such a valuable service. Custom ID’s are $95 per ID per unit and this service is only available directly through LPA Design, the manufacturer of PocketWizard products. There is no set-up fee and the customer is responsible for all shipping costs.
Plus III Custom IDs are compatible with MultiMAX Custom IDs. MultiMAX firmware version 7.50 and later has a feature for moving a Custom ID to a different frequency. Plus III Custom IDs are set to fixed frequencies. You will need to match your MultiMAX frequency to the Plus III. Learn more here: http://wiki.pocketwizard.com/index.php?title=Multiuser_Environments How do you get a Custom ID?
You must first own at least two Custom ID-capable radios like the Plus III or MultiMAX. LPA Design only sells radios through dealers, but the Custom ID service can only be performed at LPA Design (that’s how we guarantee unique IDs). We recommend you buy your Plus III radios from your favorite PocketWizard dealer and drop-ship them directly to LPA Design for Custom ID installation. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
with your contact information prior to ordering the radios. We will contact you for payment and final shipping arrangements when we receive your radios. B&H

At the 2:40 min mark in this video, a quote from actor W.C. Fields came to mind, "Never work with animals or children." Lucky for us, those subjects provide ample opportunities for great pictures (but they may require a great amount of patience that W.C. Fields seemingly lacked).
From the Karl Tayler YouTube Channel:
A Harris Hawk in flight… What a fantastic first shoot for the new studio!
It was great to welcome Robert and his incredible friend Freyja the hawk back. This time though we had all the space needed to nail the shot that I couldn’t achieve last year in our previous studio. Relevant Gear
