getting physical

26 August, 2008 at 3:38 pm ()

This week I am mostly managing all the physical elements of the installation, such as the cabling and the waterproof housing for the bat detectors.  Today, for example, I have 200 or so metres of audio cable to prepare, in order to connect all my pieces of equipment together.

My Echolocation is just about completed, in the sense that there’s not actually that much more that I can do to it until I go the Botanic Garden next week to fine tune it to the evening bat behaviour.

So, it’s out with the soldering iron, the screwdriver, an assortment of plugs and adaptors and cable galore….  My wish is to do absolutely everything that I can do in preparation before my visit, so that when I arrive I can concentrate on the finer detail.
