2 Meter VHF, Arduino controlled, small, portable and self powered 2 meter fox hunt transmitter. Up to 1.5 Watt of RF power output. No additional radio required! Set your parameters like beacon/message, call sign, transmit time and pause time from your phone, tablet or any Computer via USB to TTL Serial *. Transmit frequency change requires additional hardware but possible to change on the go with additional tools (screw driver, USB to TTL adapter, OTG cable)

FoxUnio comes in a Spruce Tree Green, Snow White or Night Black coloured 3D printed Enclosure. The green colour will make it great for hiding the transmitter in grass, trees or any imaginable place you can think of. New added white colour will make it great for the upcoming winter season!

Enclosure has two holes to install a string and hang it anywhere. Also, a 1/4-20 UNC thread on the bottom of the enclosure is included to mount it on a tripod or any standard 1/4-20 screw. (see second picture)

Printed Circuit Board (PCB) measures 86.6mm x 44.5mm.

 Available as kit (assembly required) or fully assembled and ready to go.

Kit assembly takes about 30 minutes. All you need is a soldering iron, some solder and flux, side cutters and a small screw driver.

    Operation:

    Control transmitter via DTMF. Change power output via DTMF as well.
    Once turned on, transceiver is listing for DTMF input.
    DTMF #1: Selects low power out put and will start the TX loop. It will play a melody and beacon/ID for the set amount off time, then will rest for set amount of time.
    DTMF#3: Same as #1 but with high output power.
    DMTF#2: Disables HIGH power mode - implemented if FOX is left for some time in standby to safe power consumption.
    Any other number will disable TX loop and set transceiver in standby mode until further DTMF command is received.
     
    Included battery cell has been harvested from medical devices and are grade A cells. Batteries like these haven't seen any cycles and are like new. That will keep cost low and we show something good for our world! All the cells have been tested and read 100% of its capacity. Cells have been re-wrapped and tested all individually!
    The very last pictures shows an example of an tested cell.
    Transmit and receive frequency can be set independently as well via USB to serial communication. An detailed manual is included with every transmitter.

     

     * an OTG (On The Go) cable might be required for your type of phone and/or tablet. Mini-B USB Cable is Required for FoxUino ( not included )

    Sorry, iPhones and iPads are not able to communicate with the FoxUino at this time
