Receiver Equipment

An automated radio telemetry station comprises a receiver, one to numerous antenna with cables, a power source, and a fixture on which to affix the antenna. Fixtures can consist of a variety of structures such as towers, buildings or lighthouses, trees, bouys, vehicles, or boats.
Motus currently supportsSensorGnome, Lotek Wireless (SRX 600 or newer models), and Cellular Tracking Technologies SensorStations. Features and capabilities of receivers are changing rapidly, and each unit functions differently and has different pros and cons. It is strongly advised that users research the differences between these receivers, or contact Motus, and/or each manufacturer if you have any questions before you buy.
