Of the numerous designs published for temperature biotelemeters, not one is suitable for external mounting on animals which are subject to considerable fluctuations in their environmental temperature. A transmitter has been developed which is simple and insensitive to changes in environmental temperatures between 10° and 50° Celsius; it emits a pulsed, narrow band-width signal in the 0.5 to 2 megahertz band.
