I came across the following application, which seems custom made for APRS,
on REC.RADIO.AMATEUR.EQUIPMENT. Assuming Shelly is not a Galapagos turtle,
it will need a very small unit. ;)
Every year, Shelly the tortoise gets lost or manages to escape the garden.
It can take days to find her. I would like to build a locating device so
that I can track her down.
The basic requirements are:
a) that the 'transmitter (transponder?) on the tortoise is as small as
b) that it can be made by an electronics numpty. I have basic soldering
skills, and can eventually work out a circuit diagram.
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
