HTC Vive Trackers - Bluetooth problems?

Hi all - I’ve noticed when I’m trying to use HTC trackers in my project that SteamVR isn’t maintaining a consistent, active track. The illustration of the tracker in the SteamVR panel often shows “Searching” rather than “Tracking”. This seems to happen more frequently the further away from my computer the tracker is moved - has anybody had a similar issue? Does it have to do with the Bluetooth signal strength? Any recommendations on how to course correct? Thanks!
