The Cheap Beep Project has had several requests for hack (long run time) transmitters recently. I will be doing a batch of MAXI transmitters programmed for lower output and longer run time (8 weeks max). 7.5 grams. $35 per includes spare heat shrink, spare antennas and on/off magnet tool. Use CR2032 batteries (same as Marshall Scout).

Also have some pre-built 434 MHz MICRO transmitters available. $25 with accessories.

See previous post for other available items. Kits for all sizes and 433 or 434 MHz available as usual.

Signal of the MAXI version is entirely equal to MRT UHF Scout (I had a recent chance to comparison test them)

Price is $35 per each plus postage.

Kits for DIY transmitters are still $15.
