The Micro-Trak 1000 is a 1-watt APRS transceiver,
including a frequency agile 2-meter radio,
and TinyTrak3 controller chip.
The MT-1000 was designed specifically for high altitude balloon (HAB) tracking,
and is offered as a HAB combo which inlcudes the MT-1000,
our GPS4OEM high altitude GPS receiver module,
and our V6 dipole antenna.
The combo comes pre-configured with your callsign, so it is ready to fly.
Simply connect the included antenna and GPS receiver, add batteries, and you are on the air!
Even though it does ship pre-configured,
users can easily update all settings by downloading the configuration program below,
and using our serial or USB AIO programming cable.
The MT-1000 FA is frequency agile to any frequency in the 2-meter band (144 MHz - 148 MHz),
includes built in telemetry support to transmit supply voltage,
and has a bootloader to support future firmware updates.
NOTE: The Micro-Trak 1000 comes pre-configured and ready to go, so after you place the order,
please use the order notes or a follow up email to send us your callsign & optional SSID,
and any other operating parameters which differ from the defaults in the configuration program (downloadable below).
If we do not receive this information, we will hold your order, and contact you via email before shipping.
If you are new to APRS, and unsure of what settings to use, we only need your callsign, as the other default settings should be fine for most users.
If you wish to use a frequency other than 144.39 MHz, please include that frequency also.
