2M Programmable Fox-Or Transmitter

The 2 metre fox-or transmitter is a small low power transmitter which mounts in a small plasic pipe and runs off two AA batteries.  The board measures just 12mm by 70mm.

(Note: The version pictured below is no longer available due to obsolete parts. A new version has been designed and is the prototype testing phase. It is intended to be available by October 2015 to coencide with JOTA)

The new version has much better frequency agility. The pictured unit below has 10 fixed channels and only 50kHz channel steps. The new one is programmable in 5kHz steps and has a number of other useful features. More on this with pictures shortly.

The transmitter is programmable and covers selected frequencies between 144 to 148MHz. It has two power levels so that the transmitter can be used for regular micro foxhunts as well as limited distance fox-or-ing events.
