Building a better PIT antenna

Fishery biologists have increasingly turned to using PIT tags to monitor fish movement. Their small size and low cost makes them ideal for a range of applications. On the surface, it seems relatively simple to setup a PIT tag antenna and most users are able to achieve decent success without having to fully understand the mechanics. This, combined with the mythology biologists have built up to explain some of the more common problems associated with optimizing antenna's has meant that very few groups are able to truly optimize system performance-meaning missed detections.
