A computer designed to receive radio signals
Describes a single setup of a receiver station. This includes information such as: number, types, directions, and heights of antennas; location of station, receiver listening frequency, computer serial numbers, type of antenna mounting structure. Deployments are registered on Motus.org.
Encompasses all receiver deployments at a single location.
Coaxial cable, typically used to connect antennas to receivers.
Cellular Tracking Technologies (i.e.; one of the companies that makes tags and receivers).
One of the companies that makes tags and receivers.
The part which connects the antenna to the mounting structure. Typically a metal plate with U-bolts.
Antenna mounting structure
Usually a mast, but can be anything imaginable, such as a guard rail, a tree, or a wall.
A structure used to mount antennas. Typically a metal pipe and often telescopic (pop-up), such as the 20A and 50A masts.
A three-legged structure used to support a mast. Usually 10-feet (3 m) tall (TRM-10L).
Can be steel or aluminum. Angled piece of metal typically used to affix solar panels to tripods.
A ring around the mast typically used to affix guy lines.
A triangular tower structure used for more permanent installations. Usually requires a concrete footing or a building for support.
Non-penetrating Roof Mount
A type of mast mount which does not require anchoring. Typically used on flat roofs. See non-penetrating roof mounts.
Open source receiver developed at the Phil Taylor Lab, Acadia University.
Receiver made by Cellular Tracking Technologies
SRX-series receiver made by Lotek Wireless Ltd.
A radio transmitter made by Lotek or Cellular Tracking Technologies.
The time period of when a tag was activated and in the field.
A collaborative network of receivers, transmitters, partners, and researchers which use radio telemetry to study animal movement.
When two dissimilar metals meet in a corrosive electrolyte (salt water), the more reactive metal will corrode much more quickly than normal. Aluminum when in contact with steel.
