The TinyTrak was developed by Byon Garrabrant N6BG at
www.byonics.com. The TinyTrak 3
is an APRS tracker. It is a transmit only device, but listens to see if the
frequency is clear before it transmits. It is capable of compressed beacons
in MIC-E format and can do SmartBeaconing. If you have any trouble
downloading it from Byon's site, there's a copy of the
configuration file here. The 1060 KB
file is version 1.2, downloaded Jan 16 2007.
The TinyTrak 3+ is identical to the "3" version, but has a larger voltage
regulator capable of powering a typical GPS receiver. The TinyTrak SMT is
the surface mount version.
The TinyTrak 4 is currently in beta testing. It can be set up as a
tracker functioning like a TinyTrak 3, but it is also a KISS mode TNC that
can both send and receive at 300, 1200 and 9600 bps. It will also be capable
of running PSK31.
TinyTrak 3+. It has a larger voltage regulator than the
standard TinyTrak 3 so it can power a 5V GPS receiver.
