Innovation hits earth! The new PACTOR 4 modem
New Tracker / DSP TNC
Shortwave APRS and much more in an even better package
SCS now presents the redesign of its time-tested Tracker / DSP TNC in a new beautiful housing and equipped with the improved firmware 1.4. The new Tracker also has a GPS connector with a fused 5 V output to supply external GPS devices (e.g. a GPS mouse).
The device incorporates a 24/56-bit DSP and combines a full AX.25 TNC (TheFirmware-compatible RPR, 300 and 1200 Bd AFSK, 9600 and 19200 Bd FSK) with a universal APRS tracker. The new SCS Tracker also provides Robust Packet Radio Modulation (RPR), thus enabling extremely reliable shortwave APRS worldwide – a unique feature. See also http://robust-packet.net. The device is capable of various dual-modulation modes (RPR, AFSK 300 Bd), enabling maximum flexibility in shortwave APRS tracking and 300 Bd FSK APRS network compatibility.
The high-quality hardware has a fully isolated USB connector and a TCXO time base for the DSP. The Tracker has a mini-DIN transceiver connector which is compatible with the Packet Radio standard.
