Good morning James. I am Mr.W from Tawau. How are you? Still remember me?
Oh Mr. W, I am fine. Yes what can I do for you?
James I have a question for you. Is there a way to find out whether my Amps are running without driving all the way to my Bh?
This is the call I received from Mr.W of Sabah. This article is good for those that are new in Swiftlet Farming.
If you want to find out whether the Amp (internal sound) is running and you don’t want to drive all the way to your Swiftlet farm to check it out, this is what you could do. It is economical and easy to install.
This is not a new technique it has been practiced by many farmers for many years. I guess most of us have known this. For those who are new to Swiftlet farming this might be helpful.
Things you need to have:
1) A Mobile phone that has auto call receive mode. Most mobile phone has this setting all you need is to set it to auto receive mode.
2) A good reliable charger. I don’t mind to pay for a good quality one as it will last longer.
3) A digital timer.
4) Fix an additional tweeter (internal sound) at the control room. This is for the Mobile to pick up the sound when you call. (If the internal sound is loud enough and could be heard in the Control room then you don’t need to fix an additional tweeter)
The charger is to be plugged into the timer. This is to prevent over charge and heat problem that may shorten the life of the battery of the phone.
Since the phone is not going to use up lots of battery, you may set the timer to charge 4 hours every 2-3days (depends on the type of phones).
Now you could call and check the sound of your Swiftlet farm from anywhere. When you call and there is no sound that means it is time for you to visit the Bh.
Good Swiftlet Farming All
