Wireless fence - Does it work on a hill??

8 posts in this topic

I'm thinking of buying a wireless invisible fence for our yard, but I was told they don't work well if your house is on a hill or large slope. Unfortunately, that's the case with our house. Does anyone have any experience with this?

Just in case someone else out there has the same question, I now have my answer. I emailed one of the manufacturers and was told that they will not work if you have more than a 4 foot slope in your yard.

I'm curious about this. Why would a hill make a difference? The cable should be buried at the same depth. I can't imagine the electronic frequency is affected by gravity/slope. Maybe someone with better electronic knowledge can jump in.

Duh, confused.gif my bad...

ok still, as long as line of sight isn't impeded (like over the hill), why would a hill or slope make a difference?

Honestly I can't figure those wireless to be much good. Why not use like Invisible fence. We put it in last year on our 2+ acre lot and couldn't be happier. We have 2 dogs so 2 collars, training, istallation was $1600. For what we got I thought it was a bargin. Works 100% of the time. No worries.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
