FOXVIEW3 is latest revision of APRS Viewers for radio amateurs. FoxView and FoxView2 received good response and enough feedback from users. 

Redesigned FoxView3 is basically a simple stand alone APRS Viewer, just like the original FOXVIEW.

FoxView3 has:

1. APRS Viewer on 4 x 20 LCD

2. APRS Position Encoder (Fix Home Position or GPS)

3. Built-in "Fill-in" Digi

4. APRS TNC (APRS DATA from Radio to PC) 

In addition to above, FoxView3 is a tracker too. However, since that function is not intended for this project, you may have to do small mod to enable it.

Designed with a large 4x20 Characters Back-lite LCD Display, FoxView3 only requires an audio input from your receiver or transceiver and a DC 12V supply. FoxView3 is basically designed for APRS Demos, general Viewing of APRS Data while moving and Personally, I would love to have this device to monitor APRS activities at my home without using a PC!!

After all these goodies, it should not cost a fortune. In fact, with few components from here & there, you will be able to build this viewer/encoder yourself & enjoy APRS activities.

FoxView3 is basically combination of FOXVIEW and FoxDigi which proved to be very useful project for Amateur Radio.

Special Note on MX614:

We tested MX 614 on FV3 from following suppliers and found following status:

1. TAPR - Works well

2. LORIX - Works Well

3. Argantdata - Working well if R22 is 100K (as of Sept 10)

Please change R22 to 100K. With this, most MX614 (any source) will work well.
