Interrogation Site Metadata

DRM - Deschutes River mouth

Status:   Decommissioned
Site Type: Instream Remote Detection System  |  Organization: Confed. Tribes of the Warm Springs Reser.
General Operational Period: Year Round
Start Date: 4/20/2013 12:00 AM
End Date: 8/9/2019 12:00 AM

In February-March 2013, two antenna arrays, arranged upstream- downstream from one another, were installed just upstream from the mouth of the Deschutes River in the west channel at Moody Island (rkm 0.46). This system is based on Biomark?s new IS1001-MTS Multiplexing Transceiver System. The arrays consist of 12-Biomark 20ft STOUT antennas, each controlled by a submersible IS1001 antenna control nodes. There are seven antennas in the upstream array and 60 feet downstream are five antennas in the downstream array. The IS1001 nodes are connected in series and they in turn are connected to an IS1001-Master Controller located adjacent to the array on the west bank of the Deschutes River. Diagnostic and tag detection data will be retrieved remotely using a Campbell Scientific CR1000 data logger and cell phone connection. The IS1001-MTS is capable of detecting FDX-B and HDX PIT tags. Site is no longer active.

Event Log Summary

Event Date Event Type Comments
6/19/2019 9:00:00 AM General I found that the CAN bus cable for the upstream antenna array had been damaged and it was shorted out causing the Master Controller to shut down. Antennas 01 through 07 are all out of commission due to the damaged cable. Antennas 08 through 0C are all in working order.
1/12/2018 8:35:51 AM General The pressure transducer was not registering any data on the newly installed CSI probe board. Power was recycled on the probe board on 1/11 and the pressure transducer started working again.
12/4/2017 7:18:00 AM General On 12/4, a Cloudgate modem and environmental probe interface board were installed to replace the CR1000 data logger and Raven cell modem.
11/10/2017 1:02:35 PM General Master Controller clock was reset to the correct time. Also, I turned on unique delay and set delay to 5 minutes. There appears to be a tag stuck on antenna 0C.
8/30/2016 7:36:46 AM SiteUp The Master Controller was replaced on 8/29 at about 1300 hrs PST. The site is back up and running. However, I'm unable to connect to antennas 03, 06, 08 and 0A. Will continue to work on getting all antennas up and running.
8/10/2016 10:00:00 AM SiteDown The Master Controller apparently died on 8/10/16 after 09:34. We are in the process of getting it replaced.
8/17/2015 7:34:48 AM General A new 5A power supply was installed on Friday 8/14. Both antenna arrays are up and running.
7/14/2015 9:03:45 AM SiteUp A new transformer and power supply was installed to replace the battery switcher. The power supply was not big enough to power all 12 antennas. Currently antennas 01 through 07 are on and 08 through 0C are disconnected. A new power supply is on order and will be installed when it arrives. Then the remaining antennas will be re-connected. Site checking for DRM was turned back on.
7/7/2015 5:47:12 PM SiteDown Site went down on 7/4 due to power issues. A new power transformer and AC-DC converter are going to be installed soon to get the site back up.
7/7/2015 5:47:12 PM SiteDown File checking has been temporarily turned off while the site is down.
7/7/2015 5:47:12 PM SiteDown File checking has been temporarily turned off while the site is down.
4/17/2014 7:48:47 AM SiteDown Due to power issues, DRM was down from approximately 18:29 on 4/13 to 13:29 on 4/16. Personnel from the Warm Springs Tribe changed the batteries in the battery box and got the system back up and running.
