  1. Details include the date the PTT was deployed on the whale, the date of the last transmission to the Argos network, duration for which the PTT was active, total number of transmissions received, number of received locations that were of a “good” location class (0, 1, 2, or 3 - the classes for which error radius information is available), the number of locations remaining after a speed, distance and angle filter was applied, and the total track length.
