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.
Select a type to view the history of equipment installed at this site. A missing End Date implies the information about the equipment is current.

Maintenance Check at OKP. Conducted visual inspection. Connections and cords were mostly buried therefore difficult to notice any obvious problems. Also conducted read range test with test tags. Antennas 01 and 02 read tags; antenna 03 did not. When reviewing tag observation over the past year at OKP, it appears that 03 does not consistently send out test tags every hour as with the other antennas (sometimes it did every hour, other times every 2-5 hours). It does appear antenna 03 successfully observed the odd fish. Data indicates the last test tag sent out by antenna 03 was on 06-17-2021 @ 10:40 PM.
It also appears the noise at 03 is higher than 01 and 02 (03 is consistently over 50% and 01/02 are consistently under 50%). This could likely be due to being positioned on the right bank, therefore closer proximity to airport and fortis power lines.
Antenna 02 current consistently falls below the threshold notification of 7.0 amps and usually stays at 6.8 amps, therefore notification alert changed to 6.8amps for antenna 02.

Magnetic modem antenna was stolen from outside of box. Replaced antenna with pencil antenna inserted directly into modem on inside of box to avoid future thefts.
