I'm going from memory, but didn't some models of the Tinytrack have a 'PTT In' pin on the DE-9, and you could configure it to send off a beacon after the PTT was released? You could connect a push button to ground and a pullup resistor to that, tweak the settings (possibly under MIC-E?) and see how you go.
