I finally got my new GPS receivers in - custom SiRFstar III units wired 
for direct connection to an OpenTracker+, Tracker2, or any other tracker 
that provides 5 volt power on pin 4.

These come straight from the manufacturer in Taiwan, and I got a LOT of 
them, so I've got plenty of stock (not to mention a reliable source with 
predictable lead times for future orders) and I think the price beats 
any other APRS-ready receiver out there.

They're waterproof (IPX7) and have the usual magnetic base, plus a 
suction cup.  (Don't get caught using that on your dash in California, 
though.)  Price is $53 each for one, $49 each for 5.  The product page 
is here:


Sorry, balloonatics - max altitude is 18,000 meters.  Warranty is 1 year.

I also want to say THANK YOU to everyone who's supported my store!  Your 
patronage is what lets me offer new products like this, with the volume 
to keep prices low.  Coming soon, I've got inexpensive USB/serial 
adapters, and maybe some weather sensors - still working on that one, 

Thanks and 73!
