    Hi Nathan & Sara,

    I have just purchased an ISCO 6700 auto-sampler to collect some storm flow samples in my region, with the intention of using the data to supplement load calculations.  I would like to set this up so that it will trigger when a measured variable crosses a pre-defined threshold.  I would also like to be able to trigger remotely by sending a text message to the device.

    As Nathan mentioned before, the ISCO modem is prohibitively expensive,  and so are most of the ‘optional’ add-ons.  Therefore I would like to use the Mayfly as the triggering mechanism and telemetry system.

    Nathan, you mentioned that you were looking to use the sampler for a 2-part sampling programme.  Did you make any progress with this?  If so, would it be possible to get a copy of your code to avoid spending hours covering the same ground?

    Sara, perhaps you have had success triggering an ISCO sampler from the Mayfly?  Can you provide any direction on where to start?

    Thanks to both of you for your help.
