    GPS Iridium Collars Adjustable Both Sides...shipping now

    For species like feral pigs it is important to keep the GPS and Iridium antennas at the back of the neck. If not then data may not be collected nor transmitted to the end user.

    This is complicated by the fact that collar adjustment is typically only on one side of the collar due to the wires running from the batteries at the bottom to the electronics at the top. These wires prevent adjustment on that side of the collar resulting in offset antennas.

    In the worst cases the collar totally rotates and the antennas are pointing toward the ground. Telemetry Solutions has solved this with a GPS Iridium collar that is adjustable on both sides insuring that the antennas remain dead center at the back of the neck for optimum performance.

    Change in Iridium

    When logging into the Telemetry Solutions Satellite Data website to view your Iridium data, there will now be two new columns. These columns are titled GPS and IR. These columns display the battery voltages of the GPS battery and the Iridium battery at the time of each GPS attempt. Using these new columns, it will make it easier to know when your batteries are close to expiring.
