Description

The PERDIX 6g Necklace Model VHF transmitter is designed for use on small game birds, such as quail.  Standard battery lifespan ranges from 150 to 225 days depending on power output. Pulse spacing can be increased to extend battery life if required. All models are encapsulated using a very tough inert waterproof epoxy resin and come with a mortality sensor and our ‘one-touch’ on/off magnet-activated reed switch. Necklace design can be changed according to project requirements.

Our transmitters have been designed and tested by wildlife biologists with extensive experience of radio-tracking various species around the world.  The competitive price of our radio-tracking tags allows biologists to increase their sample sizes without compromising on the quality of their radio-tracking data.
