VHF Radio and antenna


A cheaper way to track a pangolin that has been released is by using VHF radio. As the satellite will only send the pangolin’s location a couple of times per day (to save battery) we need another way to pinpoint its location on the ground. A VHF signal allows us to find the pangolin, who is normally in a burrow during the day, and monitor it when it emerges to feed.

Having both satellite and VHF trackers gives us full redundancy and when we are happy that the pangolin is thriving we locate it with VHF and remove both trackers at the same time.

A radio antenna may look simple but they are quite complex and it also includes the radio receiver too. The cost of one of these kits is around R5000 and we need a few for the monitoring teams to carry out their work at the same time in different areas. If you are in a position to donate half a VHF tracking kit, for example, then please select 10 of these items and add them to your cart.
