FOXVIEW is the first amateur radio project ever built which enable radio amateurs to view APRS packets without a PC or expensive APRS Enabled Radio Equipment. 

Designed with a large 4x20 Characters Back-lite LCD Display, foxview includes a Modem/TNC. FoxView only requires an audio input from your receiver or transceiver and a DC 12V supply. FoxView is basically designed for APRS Demos, general Viewing of APRS Data while moving and Personally, I would love to implement this for my Community disaster management activities.

FoxView is developed with an effective active audio filter, a MX614 Modem Chip and a PIC16F628A micro-controller.

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 yourself & enjoy APRS activities.

FoxView uses two SMT chips: MX614 and MCP6023. In fact, in my protoypes, I used PIC16F628A in SOIC package. However, for kits I decided to use DIP package so that same hardware may be used for DX Cluster firmware too, just by switching the Programmed PICs.

Soon, I intend make an adepter for FoxTrak/Tinytrak owners to interface with Foxview to create an LCD Tracker!!
