Hi all, I crashed a BRB 900 unit, tracked a last known position that got me right to the impact spot with terra firma...and I'm left with the LCD handheld receiver. Is it worth anything to anyone? Can they be programmed to track a different unit?

Don't see any contact info on the BRB website.

If so, I'll post in the yardsale.

I did the same and sold the receiver in yard sale. Someone will take it.

I've crashed and gotten a new transmitter, so it still has value to someone

If selling it, might want to consider getting an amateur radio license from Industry Canada and open up some other available options if you go back into GPS tracking. If confining yourself to sport rockets, you wouldn't have to do it but if you plan on more aggressive flight profiles, there are more economical long range
tracking solutions on the amateur radio side without having to invest in "Kate". No doubt Multitronix is a fine system if you have the coin and a rocket that
can take the footprint. Kurt

The BRB900 receiver can be reprogrammed so that it can read any new or existing BRB900 transmitters. You just have to make sure that the "destination ID's" match.
