The master draws 300 - 350 mA …….. but the duty cycle is low; approximately 100 - 150 mS every 30 seconds, so the average is low.

I'm not familiar with this type of master - but if it is really voltage-sensitive you can also use a diode - each diode will subtract .7 volts from the power supply.
alkaline batteries nominal voltage is 1.5VDC so 3 in series would give you 4.5VDC.
If the master really draws 350ma - you would'nt get a lot of life -
A D cell battery will give you 12000-18000 mAh
12000/350=34.2857 to 18000/350=51.4286
so between 34 and 50 hours of run time.
