This looks like a great initiative! I subscribed for the workshop (by way of sending an email to hs1an@hotmail.com)

If I understood it correctly, the kit with GPS unit and modem/TNC will be provided at the workshop.
This would mean we only have to bring the radio which we want to use + the external mic connector to connect the radio to the "aprs modem"

Question: 
* Do we need to bring soldering or other equipment?
* What is the price of the kit? (GPS + modem)

Dear Alexander,

well the kit is the "modem/TNC" itshelf -

Website Opentrakcer +

Opentracker + - Brochure (PDF - 1,1 MB)


The cost of ~ 3,000 Baht incl. Opentracker + - Kit + GPS Receiver (Palin - Taiwan)

During the workshop the kit will be soldered, programmed and tested ... you can bring your radio to intergrate it with the kit - soldering cables to connect it!

The workshop is design to host ~30 Ham's and I do not know if they supply soldering equipment or another tools ... but I guess they will have some units but not for everybody - I will bring my own!


Hope to see you there at the workshop!
