Small GPS for birds

Thursday, August 20th, 2009

I recently had an opportunity to travel to a bird research station located on an island in the western USA.  After inquiring about our Quantum 4000 Feather-Lite GPS units for birds, the biologists involved were kind enough to extend an invitation to their field site.  Keeping the GPS at or below 13 grams is the goal for the project.  We will use a solar panel to charge the power source for the GPS unit.

It was certainly refreshing to get out of the office for a change.  More information about these small GPS units will be available in September.  Quintin

Better antenna, better remote downloads

Thursday, August 13th, 2009

Matt recently made a trip to Sequoia National Forest where he range tested various antennas for our wireless GPS remote data download system.  The results were impressive and we now offer an antenna for downloads that should increase the maximum data download range from your Quantum 4000 Enhanced GPS collars.   And it’s smaller too!  Here he is outside of our office using the new antenna.
