I have a PetSafe Deluxe In-Ground Radio Fence. The number on the back of the transmitter is RF125. The transmitter will be fine all day and then in the evening will begin to intermittently beep. I unplug it for the night since my dog is inside and re-plug it in the morning. And again it will be silent most of the day until evening again. What are some possible causes for this? We ran new wire a couple of months ago.
Thanks

Wireless dog fences use computer GPS or radio signals to determine yard perimeter and to communicate with corresponding dog collars and ensure the dog is not traveling outside of the pre-determined boundaries. Wireless Dog Fences create a circular boundary around a central base station using radio waves

Today we're looking at the PetSafe PIF-300 wireless fence. This is one of the few wireless fences on the market today. It is radio signal based. What that means is unlike a wired fence, you don't actually have to bury anything in your yard. You have this system right here which you put inside your house, and it sends out a radio signal that allows the dog to go up to 90 feet away from the transmitter.FWIW, the purpose of a choke is to pass DC current (measured in volts, so the fence system thinks a wire is shorted across the terminals) while blocking any AC (the noisy part that shows up in the radio is NOT shorted out, so it continues down the buried wire). You can make one -- it's just a coil of wire. Google it. Perhaps this system uses a constant DC voltage to test for continuity through the buried wire, and an AC signal (the "noise" you hear) to trigger the dog collar. A break would cause the beep that tells you the wire is broken (DC missing in the wire loop) and so you fool the system with the choke so you can test with the AM radio. Simply shorting the wire could diminish the signal to the radio, but I'd obviously try it and see if it's loud enough to do the job.Your local AM radio stations may or may not be close on the dial to the frequency the dog fence broadcasts. A cheap-o AM radio might work better than an expensive model (less sensitivity and less adjacent-channel rejection on the cheap model). YMMV so try different radios.Wireless dog fences are available on at affordable prices. Find wireless dog fences by conducting a search from any eBay page. The process is simple. Browse through the listings, make your selection, check seller feedback, and complete your transaction. If you have a multi-dog household, you likely need to purchase additional radio collars for the pet containment solution you have selected, which typically provides containment for two pets. If you have more than two dogs, you may need additional systems. Wireless dog fences provide a method of keeping your dog in a confined area without erecting a standard fence. They make a good temporary measure and are a more affordable option for a longer-term measure. When purchasing a wireless dog fence,make sure it covers a large enough area and that your dog is heavy enough to wear the collar safely.Why do you have to use an AM radio and fiddle around trying to find a suitable frequency? Why not just use the dog collar itself, which emits an audible noise when you get near the fence?More details… Neighbors do not have a dog fence. We’re not running an AM transistor radio at the time of triggering (although unsure of the neighbors). Triggering seems to be fairly reliable around the DirecTV wire at two sides of our house. Again, this happens when the Dog Fence is turned off and unplugged.
