Table 1 Details of the locations, deployment features (elevation of the Mote and duration of deployment) and performance characteristics (number of PTTs detected, maximum distance of reception, coverage area where Motes received 100% of the same messages received by Argos satellites, and maximum angle of message detection) for the two Motes of the Southern California array (SoCal) and the three Motes of the Hawaiian array

From: Motes enhance data recovery from satellite-relayed biologgers and can facilitate collaborative research into marine habitat utilization
