Reviews Summary for Byonics MicroTrak300 Kit
Byonics MicroTrak300 Kit Reviews: 1 Average rating: 5.0/5 MSRP: $95
Description: The Micro-Trak 300 is a 2-meter FM transmitter combined with a TinyTrak 3 controller chip that provides an easy and inexpensive way to build a small APRS tracker. Just plug in a GPS receiver and track!

* No need to tie up an expensive radio for APRS tracking
* No complicated radio cabling
* Simple 2 wire GPS connection
* Supports all the latest Byonics TinyTrak3 features.

Micro-Trak 300 operates on 144.390 MHz at 300 mW and is sold as a kit. The kit contains 2 large surface mount parts that are as easy to mount as the through hole parts. The kit does not include antenna, power, or serial connections.
Product is in production.

Neat idea  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I have one of these and am able to hit the local WIDE1-1 most of the time about 2 miles away with a Comet tri band HT antenna, as well as the regular WIDE2-2 digi most of the time.

The new firmware version absolutely makes it possible to use this fixed or at an event fixed, without having any errors as previously existed, such as with the TH-D7AG2 displaying the MT300 location.

I found the battery lasted 3 days non-stop, using a new Duracell 9 volt.

This is certainly a useful and cheap way to let hams find you at an event like a Hamfest or your house for a picnic, as well as SAR or special events. Try one at Field Day 2008...
