Lotek MCFT2 VHF radio transmitters are primarily designed for use with Lotek digitally encoded systems (SRX 400, 600, DL, 800, SRX1200) that utilize Lotek proprietary code sets and allow for over 700 unique IDs per frequency. Lotek code sets were first introduced in 1993 as a means to minimize overall receiver scan time and thereby detect more tagged animals within a set increment of time.
MCFT2 and predecessor MCFT have been used since 1994 to study and monitor the behavior of adult fish species such as salmon, sturgeon, trout, walleye, bass, carp, and numerous other species as well as some amphibians and reptiles.
Compatible with Lotek coded VHF radio receiving systems: SRX 400/400A, SRX 600/DL, SRX 800 and SRX1200.
Used in long term (multi-year) studies, fish passage evaluation, microhabitat utilization, fish entrainment studies, migration timing, and behavioral response to environmental perturbation.
