  1. All models included the transmitter deployment location where measurements took place as a random effect. For each transmitter location, detection estimates were determined for 4 distances from the transmitter (25,50,100 and 200 m), and 4 gain settings (0,6,12,24 dBs) at each distance. Half of the transmitter deployment locations were within vegetation (Phragmites spp.) and the other half were directly adjacent to the vegetation
