FOXVIEW3 is latest
revision of APRS Viewers for radio amateurs. FoxView and
received good response and enough feedback from users.
Redesigned FoxView3 is basically a simple stand
alone APRS Viewer, just like the original FOXVIEW.
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.

following suppliers and found following status:
- Works well

- Working well if R22 is 100K (as of Sept 10)
Please change R22 to 100K. With
this, most MX614 (any source) will work well.
