PinPoint VHF Download Solar

  • GPS locations downloadable over VHF radio – now with Solar cells!

    Accurate, automated GPS locations are taken at times/dates programmed by you, to meet the requirement of your study. The locations can then be remotely downloaded with our VHF PinPoint Command Unit, when you want to with no need to recapture your animal. The solar cells then use light to recharge the battery for detection of the next locations and data relay. These tags weigh from just 6g.

    Great for:

    • Species with good exposure to light
    • Species that are difficult to recapture
    • Periodic data collection during your study
    • Species prone to disturbance
