Please ask about other models if a different size or weight is needed.

Please contact one of our Avian Telemetry Specialists to discuss your individual project requirements.

* Locations may be attempted but the bird’s behaviour can prevent GPS acquisition and upload. Number of location attempts are approximate and schedule dependent. Operating life can be further increased by decreasing the frequency of iridium transmission (more positions in the record) and/or decreasing average time when VHF Beacon is on – for help with your application, contact one of our specialists.
