APRS Tracker

Inspired by the “Micro-Trak AIO” from Byonics I wanted to build my own ruggedized version.

This is the whole thing:

Battery, APRS-Tracker, Receiver and GPS: It's all included within the casing.

  • The enclosure is from Peli.
  • The tracker itself is a OpenTracker+ from Argent Data Systems.
  • The Transceiver is a Yaesu VX-3.
  • The GPS Module is taken out of a Sirf-III GPS Dongle by Navilock.

To save battery power, the transceiver is only powered if a position has to be transmitted.

The configuration can be done through a custom made cable. The cable makes the connection between the tracker and a serial interface from a PC.
