I have been trying to get MT-8000FAs to work for the past couple of months. While I have had some successes, it has been determined that a newer tracker would greatly increase our recovery efforts. I have spent some time trying to find an appropriate APRS tracker but at no avail. My requirements (in descending order) are as follows
1) MUST be APRS
2) Must require little to no assembly
3) Must be in the payload in two weeks (my last order day is Wensday with rush shipping)
4) Accept Byonics GPS or have built in GPS
5) Close to all in one (see above for GPS requirement)
I would preferably like to avoid Byonics (I'm sure they are good products just lacking in tech support), however I would settle with them if needed. I was planning on upgrading the hardware but with a couple months to prepare (rather than a couple days).
Does anyone have and suggestions for trackers or a good place to start looking.
