Telonics Model TA-9 VHF Portable/Fixed Site Antenna is a ruggedized transmitting and receiving antenna designed specifically for wildlife telemetry applications. The antenna can be installed as the transmitting antenna of a trap site transmitter or a receiving antenna in conjunction with a data acquisition receiver for monitoring visitation to the nest sites or water holes. The antenna's flexible elements make it easy to transport and set up at remote sites. When being used as a transmitting antenna with the TBT-504-3 trapsite transmitter, the TA-9 should be ordered with a TNC-female connector. If being used as a receiving antenna, e.g. with a Telonics receiver, the TA-9 should be ordered with a BNC-female connector.
