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.
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.
