Event Log Summary

Event Date Event Type Comments
2/18/2014 3:00:00 PM General Interrogation file TOP14030.A, which was manually uploaded and covered the period from 01/22/14 ~20:42 to 02/18/14 14:55:17 had few timer tag records. However, it' appears unlikely that tagged fish within the antennas' read range were missed because the PIT tag codes for all 6 of the radio-tagged steelhead passing nearby fixed receivers during this period were in this file.
1/30/2014 8:58:12 PM General Coax cables were replaced on antenna 1 and 2. Antenna 1 was also replaced. All antennas were re-tuned and the site was running properly by 16:00.
