Tiny APRS transceiver for PC

This transceiver looks like it should be possible to duplicate. A neat design. I think this connects via a USB socket so the PC acts as a node for digital modes like DSTAR.

    It’s an APRS device pure and simple. No D-Dtar (or DMR or Fusion) functionality.

    The ID-31 radio shown was used to just show what this neat gadget transmits on APRS, via an APRSD-Star gateway somewhere at a guess. (A TH-D7 would have done the same job all by itself.)

    This micro APRS device also RECEIVES APRS messages! That’s the neat bit. Quite how you enter a message to send however, I couldnt see, but anything is possible with two buttons, or a USB link to (say) a smart phone.
