APRS Board

Today I finally managed to unsolder the antenna connector on the APRS board and turn it then re-solder it.  Now the board fits in the frame and the antenna conveniently fits through a small hole in the top of the frame.

I also sawed off two of the tabs on the cover for the frame.  Now the cover fits onto the rest of the frame.  I am probably going to add hinges on one of the sides to I can open and close it and be able to display it.

Tomorrow I am going to try and work on the program for the basic stamp.  Now I completely understand how they work and am also going to put together the relay circuit to turn on and off the different parts.
