Wireless Data Transfer – From Collar to Hand Held Receiver

Monday, July 3rd, 2006

Our new Quantum 5000 GPS collar is exceeding our expectations. Just a quick note about the remote control wireless data transfer. That is the data transmitted from the collar (on the study animal) to the receiver in your hands.

The data transfer rate is excellent. 4600 positions transferred in one minute, which is about 50% more than we predicted. The receiving antenna is just a short whip antenna. With no signal amplification our maximum ground to ground data transfer range has been over 6 km. There are three things that can be done to increase that range. Stay tuned for more information.
