It’s amazing how much interest, enthusiasm and support there is from most people. Particularly DIALOG, who are really going out of their way to help.
Since I complained that the signal strength was rather week…in some of our research areas, they have sent one of their engineers, all the way to our Uda Walawe base camp to check this out today!! Great support and commitment from a giant corporate entity towards wildlife!!
Same cannot be said of all however. We were very keen to use some of the locally produced GPS systems but repeated appeals did not even elicit the courtesy of even a reply. We are now getting down a state of the art GARMIN field GPS unit, for project use.
