The FODTrack boards are available from Far Circuits http://www.farcircuits.net , or I might still have an extra one left at home from the custom batch I had them run off, before they started offering them. I also have one of the ARRL Sat Tracker 688 boards, instruction/driver CD, and all necessary parts except a case. I probably could let that go, just gotta figure out for how much $$....

100% homebrew works really well.
