Are Hathorn cameras locatable?
All Hathorn camera systems come with a built-in transmitter that operates at 512htz and is easily locatable with a standard receiver (locator).
What happens if my push rod kinks or breaks?
Your camera reel will require a repair called a reterm. The push rod from the kink to the end of the reel is removed and then the camera head is reattached. This is why it’s a good practice to buy a longer camera reel that you typically need. It’s much easier and less expensive to do a reterm than to replace an entire reel.
