GPS tracking? Some kind of tamper-detection with a sender? At his budget he could be communicating through satellites.



would need a permanent power source to do that. batteries slowly leak power even if unused. with a solar charger batteries would eventually wear out from the charge cycling. GPS and satellite communication is relatively power hungry. plus, the radio emissions would be a dead giveaway.


Good points.
