PinPoint VHF Download
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. If retrieved, the tag can be recharged and used repeatedly.
