BSH - Big Sheep Crk. Upper Columbia

Status:   Active - Non-Operational
Site Type: Instream Remote Detection System  |  Organization: Washington Dept. of Fish and Wildlife
General Operational Period: Year Round
Start Date: 2/11/2015 12:00 AM

The detection system consists of 2 antennas, installed in a pass-over loop configuration approximately 170 feet apart. Each half duplex antenna spans the width of the channel which is approximately 80 feet and is operated by a Single-Antenna HDX Reader (Oregon RFID). This site is configured to detect half-duplex tags only. Data from the antennas is stored in the internal memory and is uploaded to PTAGIS on a monthly basis. A 24V DC battery bank connected to solar panel powers the detection system. The antennas were built and installed by WDFW staff. The site is operated year round.

Configuration

Configuration metadata includes details about the equipment used at the site to detect and record PIT tags. A new configuration sequence record is created when equipment is added or removed from the site and the period of time it was active. A configuration sequence without an End Date is currently active.

Event Date Event Type Comments
10/13/2021 10:33:00 AM General

Site visited. Data downloaded, batteries replaced, and tuning checked at both antennas. Downstream antenna was down on arrival due to low voltage. Additionally, the read range of downstream antenna is limited. Site is now fully operational.

10/9/2021 2:20:00 AM General

Upstream antenna went down due low voltage. Issue will be resolved in the near future. Downstream antenna is still operational, but with limited read range.
