We are sorry to report that Pocket Tracker hardware is no longer available.
It was discontinued because some of its parts were obsoleted and replacements have not been found.
This page remains for reference. The Pocket Fox chip is still available for use in TinyTrak3 PCBs.
Byonics is happy to announce the Pocket Fox, a small, inexpensive radio transmitter designed for hidden transmitter hunting.
It produces tone sequences and Morse code messages at user-programmed times. It is programmable via a simple computer program,
utilizes EEPROM for all programmed options so they are remembered when power is removed, and is quite compact.
Pocket Fox is available as a complete kit, or as a upgrade chip that can be used to add hidden transmitter functionality
to any existing
Pocket Tracker or
TinyTrak controller (TinyTrak, TinyTrakII, and TinyTrak3)
The Pocket Fox, when used with the Pocket Tracker hardware, provides all the following benefits
