SB HackerSpace Developing an APRS WX Telemetry System

2015-10-16_10-32-53Our friends at the Santa Barbara HackerSpace are developing the tiniest ever 1.6 oz APRS Weather Data board for weather balloon flights and private weather stations. Their little device is called the Tracksoar and it contains a GPS receiver, a 2m transmitter, weather sensors, and an Arduino compatible Atmega 328P microprocessor.

They have launched a KickStarter campaign and are looking for backers. The campaign closes November 8, 2015.
