Scott,

I think the work you do is fantastic.

I must admit I have trouble keeping up with what tracker is which. They
change so quickly.

Do you maintain a hardware and software changelog ?

I am trying to get the FLARM - glider tracking product to incorporate GPWPL

Subject: [aprssig] New OpenTracker+ features


I just posted a new OT1+ firmware version - this release covers the Peet
  Bros and Dallas/AAG weather stations and power control options, so the
OT1+ should be fully caught up with the OT1.

I posted more details on the OpenTracker list, but aside from the
offline configuation editing function that I finally implemented after
three years of trying to find time, the most interesting thing is a new
addition to the SMT/telemetry firmware.

The current version that's on the website now will turn on and off the
power control output pin (pin 9 on the radio connector or ADC6 on the
SMT board, 25 mA source / 48 mA sink) in response to an 'ON' or 'OFF'
APRS text message, and will ACK the message.

Next up is access control and support for the other output pins, but
it's enough to test out anyway.  And it's not specific to the SMT
hardware - you can load the SMT firmware on the regular kit, but the
telemetry pin assignments are wrong.  The code will wind up in the
regular firmware as well, eventually.

On a related subject, what's a good after market battery for the TH-D7A?
  Half an hour of sending messages to turn on and off an LED on my
workbench and this thing's ready for a recharge.
