For light GPS loggers that need to be retrieved for downloading you must know where they are, and a radio beacon will help you track them down using a receiver and Yagi antenna.
You can choose the days and times that GPS locations are recorded with a highly sophisticated and flexible scheduler that can provide just what you want. The VHF beacon is scheduled separately, for example after you have collected the GPS locations, or for a limited time each day, to make best use of the battery power.
to track down the tag for data retreival
Starting at just 3.5 g, these tags can be used on a large number of small animals.
Scheduling tags is both easy and has great flexibility to get the locations, and fire the beacon, exactly when you want
Convenient Data Processing:
Download the data using our DLC interface and PinPoint Host software, then convert to spreadsheets or GoogleEarth files with a few clicks of a mouse.
Most useful where GPS data is required from an animal that is easily re-trapped, or when the tag becomes detached from an animal.
