Acoustic Microphone and BatCam Mast

Product Description

Two version available: 20' and 6.5'

For short term passive monitoring: Acoustic Survey 20' Mast. Bring consistancy to your microphone deployments with this telescoping aluminum pole, and microsite your station exactly where you want it for best performanace. Each section locks in place with a simple twist up to 20' high, but collapses close to the ground so you can clear out the cobwebs without de-rigging guy ropes at temporary or short-term monitoring stations. Easily can hold multiple microphones from Pettersson, Binary Acoustics, and Wildlife Acoustics (the microphone, not the detector!).  Only 48'' long and 1.3'' in diameter collapsed make these easy to transport between sites and store. Is it strong? It's rated to hold a flag in 50 m.p.h. wind, it will hold a few microphones just fine.  Size: 47.5''x1.3'' collapsed; 240'' extended. Weight: 2 lbs.

How to mount your microphone: because no microphone is the same, there is no bracket of sorts that connects your microphone to this pole. Every solution we have seen restricts field placement in some way, is not compatible with various makes, or is just ridiculously expensive. Most brackets likely combine all three characteristics. For surveys lasting a few nights, use rubber bands to put the microphone however you need it positioned. For longer deployments, we have never -ever- had a microphone placement problem fail when wrapped with simple electrical tape. Use Scotch Super 33 or equivalent to reduce or eliminate sticky residue due to the adhesive "melting" in the heat. When the custom microphone bracket you thought you needed can't be found or is broken, you're going to be using tape anyway, so keep some in your kit.

How to mount the pole: If the bottom cap is removed (heat gently if this is stubborn), this pole can slip over 3/8'' rebar as a base, then guy rope to suit. We haven't carried around a hammer and rebar for these poles for years now in practice, because there often seems to be a suitable "sticky-up-thing" such as small trees, brush, fenceposts, etc. in the micro siting area suitable to hold the pole with just a few guy ties, no rebar in the ground at all. See the accompanying deployment photos; no rebar base is used in any examples except the first.

For active monitoring, handheld, or vehicle use (mobile transects): Walkabout 6.5' Mast.Get better recordings by getting your microphone further away from echo-producing ground clutter and into the airspace where bats are actually flying. Perfect for active monitoring where the mic could be pointed at bats of interest, or secure in the Walkabout Pack (sold seperately) for hands-free hiking. Each section locks in place with a simple twist up to 6.5' high, but collapses to 24''. Ideal for the M500, MiniMic, or Echometer Touch on extension cables. Also handy for rigging microphones on vehicles for mobile transects! Size: 24''x1.3'' collapsed; 78'' extended. Weight: 1.5 lbs.
