  • Tested near antarctic coast (about 1500 km south of Melbourne). Useful for tracking ships and what not. Lost reliable signal moving east towards NZ on the same latitude, however. PV panels + 1s LiPo charger + Arduino + this board + SPOT = reliability on the high seas in frigid temperatures. While it may seem expensive, this is actually a cheaper solution to other rugged commercialized trackers.
