This site is a permanent PIT tag detection system located in the Ringold Springs Hatchery outfall channel. The site is located just below the adult collection facility. The site consists of three antennas in series, installed in pass-through configuration. Each antenna spans the wetted width of the channel and is powered by a Biomark IS1001 (ACN). The ACNs are connected to a QST/Biomark QuBE ACN controller. The antennas were built and installed by WDFW. The site is connected to grid power to charge the battery bank that powers the detection system. A cellular modem is installed on site to provide remote communication and allow for automated data collection.
