What a couple of HAM’s !

Josh and I passed our Amateur Radio exams, and just received our call signs from the FCC.

KJ6UXA and KJ6UXB

We’re going to start testing out a APRS tracker which gives us a much better tracking ability.

We are  looking at the Micro-Trak All in one from Byonics. It comes with a 10-watt APRS tracker, including a 2-meter transmitter, TinyTrak3 controller chip and GPS.

Once we complete our testing, we’ll be scheduling a new launch. Micro-Trak AIO (All In One)
