The MicroTrak RTG (Ready To Go) FA is a complete 10-watt APRS tracker, including a frequency agile 2-meter transmitter, a TinyTrak3
controller chip, a Byonics GPS5 receiver
, and a magnet mount SMA antenna. The MT-RTG FA was designed for easy vehicle installation. It comes pre-configured with your callsign so it is literally "Ready To Go". Simply connect the included antenna and GPS receiver to the top of your car, plug into the cigarette lighter jack, and you are on the air! It is frequency agile over the 2-meter band (144 MHz - 148 MHz) and includes built in telemetry support to transmit supply voltage and temperature.
After you place the order, please use the order notes or an email to send us your callsign and any other custom operating parameters. If we do not receive this information, we will hold your order, and contact you via email before shipping. Even though it does ship pre-configured, users can easily update all settings by downloading the configuration program and using a TT USB or F-F null modem cable
. The included MicroTrak RTG interface cable normally includes a cigarette lighter plug but can be substituted with a Powerpole if requested. These products operates on amateur radio frequencies, and requires a valid amateur radio license to use. Since it is a transmitter only, it may ocassionally send very short packets coincidentally with other transmitters.
