Comments From The NZ Distributor
With Garmin compared to Sportdog Tek
• Obviously illegal (will be confiscated) vs Legal,
• Zero warranty vs 3 Year Sportdog warranty
• Non-repaired (illegal to repair in NZ) vs full repair service available.
• Wait for imports to be smuggled into the country vs Available immediately (from 2nd Dec)
• Customs ceasing at boarder illegal imports
But cannot convince everyone, some will still prefer to break the law!
The prosecution of a Hastings pig hunter for using illegal dog tracking collars has shed light on an issue the
New Zealand Pig Hunting Association has been trying to resolve for more than two years.
Yesterday Graham Scarfe 31, admitted using illegal Garmin dog tracking collars, which interfere with radio
frequencies used by a range of industries, including some emergency services.
He was fined $1200 and an order was made for the tracker’s destruction. He had pleaded guilty to a charge
of transmitting radio waves without a radio licence.
Police found five illegal trackers at Scarfe’s property in Hastings last August.
The court heard GPS data downloaded from Scarfe’s units showed one or both of the devices had been used
on numerous occasions in June and July last year.
Ministry prosecutor Jessica Blythe said the “serious” offending was part of a “worrying increase” in the use
of such devices.
“The radio frequencies are used by a number of industries but in particular forestry, transport and logging
companies,” she said. “These devices can interfere with emergency communications in these sections.
“There is potential for emergency lines to become blocked so generally the person trying to make contact
cannot hear anything. The safety issues and risks that can result from this are significant, particularly in
regard to forestry industry where these radio communications services are relied upon.”
Scarfe’s lawyer, Peter Austin, said the dog collars were bequeathed to his client some years ago. Scarfe was
not “particularly savvy” regarding the law around radio waves,” Mr Austin said.
Judge Richard Watson said the concern the ministry had was in regard to the interference with other radio
frequencies and the safety aspect associated with having clear communication via radio networks.
“Safety within the forest is a big issue, there have been a number of deaths recorded, and if workers cannot
use radio bands, due to your interference, that is a safety element that is no longer available to them.”
