Hello, With the BAT AT100 lure, can you tell me more about the way you typically set up the laptop and the weatherproofing? I am trying to figure out how long we could set these lures out for on a given night. Thank you!
Hello Joy- The AT100 can be run by a very old PC.. think small Windows XP netbook. Set Windows to never sleep, and to keep running with the lid closed. You can add a large 50000 mAh lith-ion battery which will run a Surface Pro, for example, for a couple of days. These items fit in a metal locking ammo box such as https://batmanagement.com/collections/deployment-supplies/products/acoustic-deployment-case and simply cut out a notch for the cable. I would leave the box standing on end with the notch on the bottom to minimize water intrusion, hang it on a tree if in a potential wet area. Set the speaker as you would a bat detector microphone, horizontal if worried about rain. You would also want to wrap the rear of the speaker to shield the USB port from water. Neither the AT100 or the BatLure is intended to be weatherproof, but the AT100 is probably more weatherproof.
If you're not really leaving the site area, some put everything (and more) in a pelican case and just leave the lid ajar for the cable. This would keep dew and a light rain off the computer. Thanks- JC
