About this product

The TRX-2000S WR water-resistant radio telemetry receiver is able to monitor up to 400 animals across 2 frequency bands, providing superb quality, comprehensive tracking coverage.  The expanded frequency range helps avoid interference on crowded bands and the crystal controlled synthesizer tunes in up to 200 frequencies per band.  The TRX-2000S receiver has improved digital circuitry to enable fast, accurate tuning of transmitter signals.  Noise-reducing digital audio filters reduce background noise drop away to clarify signal and ensure greater sensitivity.  The TRX-2000S has a noise blanking circuit to reduce unwanted noise and an attenuator to reduce signal swamping when the transmitter is close to the antenna.  The nickel hydride battery can be charged from mains power and has virtually no memory build-up and the receiver can be powered directly from a 12 V car battery with the included cable.  The TRX-2000S WR model has a water-resistant case and faceplate to enable use of the receiver in rain to increase the range of conditions under which the unit can be used.
