Can be done with the Mic-Lite and a Keychain transmitter.  Total weight
about 100g including battery (not counting GPS and battery for GPS).

See http://www.toad.net/~wclement/mim2.htm

MIM/Mic-Lite will give you 5 analog channels and 8 on/off status bits and
will accept GPS serial stream to encode into APRS position reporting...
