      What's your time frame?  I'm working on a couple of things that might be useful for this.  In particular, I'm working on a magnetic mount tracker based on the MX145.  The goal is to have the tracker, GPS, transmitter, and about 10 days of Li-ion batteries (30% tracking, 70% sleep mode) in a 4" diameter dome with a 1/4 wave antenna on the top.
