May I ask for you to elaborate on what your question is regarding? What are you referring to when you refer to the "long collar" and the "mini collar"?

I will be standing by, looking forward to your response.

Hi Jason,
The collar is a GarminTT15Mini- it has a long antenna on it that is obviously bebeficial for long range tracking and training , however, I want to use it at close range in the house and yard. Will the collar pick up the transmission from the control unit (Alpha 100 ) if I disconnect the antenna?
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 11 months ago.


You should have the 13 inch and 5 inch antennas in the package. I would suggest testing it's use with the 5 inch antenna. If you remove the antennas altogether, it will still work, but it's functional use cannot be guaranteed. One great way to test it is to simply test it by removing the antennas and testing to see how well it works.

Is there anything else that I can help with or help clear up?

Thank you,
