tracking animal movements is done manually, searching for signals
on specific radio transmitter frequencies using a receiver and
a Yagi antenna. This technology is suitable for tracking a wide
range of animals. Radio telemetry uses a series of radio signals
that are pulsed from the transmitter and this technology is robust
enough to operate in virtually any habitat. With radio collars
you must remember that terrain, vegetation and power lines will
all have an effect on signal reception. We encourage dialogue
between clients and Africa Wildlife Tracking to ensure we tailor
clients with the equipment that suits their tracking goals.
