Manufacturing and Shipping:
Q: Who manufactures SoundScout Recorders?
A: Researchers at Teton Raptor Center assemble all SoundScout recorders. Teton Raptor Center is a nonprofit in Jackson Hole, Wyoming committed to advancing raptor conservation through research, education, and rehabilitation. All SoundScout sales benefit Teton Raptor Center's research programs.
Q: How long after I place an order will I receive my ARUs?
A: Order turnaround time depends on the time of year and your location. Please contact us to find out how quickly we can ship your order.
Q: Do you ship internationally?
A: Yes. Please contact us to determine if we can ship to your country.
Q: How much does each ARU weight?
A: 2.5 lbs with a one-week battery and 4 lbs with a two-week battery.
Q: Can SoundScout ARUs be programmed to start and stop recording?
A: SoundScout ARUs must be manually turned on and off. The low memory requirements (127 kb/s) allow the ARU to record continuously for 2-3 weeks (with the two-week battery), and the recording device labels the start time on each recording file. The recording device labels each file with a start time, so you can easily choose which files to analyze.
