Event Date Event Type Comments
3/31/2021 12:59:00 PM General The Mad River array started to experience high levels of noise on 5/06/2020 reducing tag detections. On 3/31/2021 a single flat plate antenna was temporarily installed at RKM 778.017.002 upstream of the original site. 47.738046, -120.380441 The temporary antenna site consists of a IS1001 master controller, an IS1001 antenna control node, and a 15’ HDPE antenna. The original site will continue to operate with the high noise levels until a solution can be found.
5/6/2020 9:51:00 AM SiteDown Noise suddenly jumped at this site and it has not been functioning at a level high enough to read tags since 5-6-20. No solution has yet to be found.
2/19/2020 3:13:23 PM General Antenna 1 lost current on the 16th of January. It was plugged back in on 19 February at approximately 10:30.
1/16/2020 6:00:00 PM General At interrogation site MAD on 1/16/2020 at approximately 18:00, Antenna #1 went offline.
7/3/2018 12:00:00 PM General At interrogation site MAD on 7/3/2018 at approximately 12:00 PM, antenna #1 and #4 were brought back online. Antenna #1 was plugged back in. Antenna #4 was replaced with new 15' HDPE Westfork antenna. All antennas are now functioning. Site is fully operational.
