Base Station, Handheld
Base station handheld (Nano, Micro & Small)
Base station handheld – Base Stations are radio transceivers that communicate with our GPS devices. They are quite small and not meant to be used exclusively as stationary data collection stations. They are small, lightweight and quite mobile. They use a rechargeable battery. It is capable of operating up to 40 hours on a charge.
In the field, whenever there is a GPS device with unsent data in its memory and a base station is within range then there will be an automatic data transfer over to the base station. To date, the maximum data download range detected is 30 km. line of sight. In the field you will not experience range this long unless you use a drone or an aircraft to lift the base station. You certainly don’t need to do either. At the least, assuming that your study animal is above ground, you should have a data transfer range of hundreds of meters.
Multiple base stations can be used; all base stations and GPS devices are cross-compatible.
Base stations operate at roughly 868 MHz but can be tuned by you to specific frequencies in order to maximize data download range. You collect data from the base stations by connecting them to a laptop with a USB cable.
