Thought this would be of interest to some of you.  You're welcome to

We've been developing an Atmel AVR APRS beacon with onboard GPS and
transmitter.  We successfuly flew a homemade single-sided toner transfer smt
board on the last flight.  We plan to make a kit with two sided board and
parts for under $80-$100 when done. We started with a version of WhereAVR
that Vienna Wireless Society had modded.  It's coded in plain C so it should
be easy to port to MSP430 or other favorite uC. It's not well documented as
it's still much in progress.

I'm a new member and have worked in radio over the years but just recently
got my amateur license.  Please excuse any newbie faux pas in advance.
