One 15-foot HDPE pipe antenna is installed in Shingle Creek, a tributary to the Okanagan River in Canada, immediately adjacent to the Okanagan Nation Alliance (ONA) fish Hatchery. The antenna is connected to an IS1001 and controlled by a Biomark Master Controller. The MC is housed in an enclosure mounted outside the hatchery.
