So what is the best way to add the DS18S20 to a T2-301 without getting too bulky or weighty?
I considered putting it in the DB9 shell I used to wire up the GT-320FW High-Altitude GPS Receiver but the T2-301 Serial + Power Cable does not pass the 1-wire pin to the serial connector. Is the 1mm pitch wafer connector pigtail that comes with the GT-320FW available in longer lengths, like 18" or so?
I will break out the soldering iron and create my own cable with temp sensor but I thought it worth asking.
