Program Idea: APRS
« on: May 25, 2013, 06:31:37 PM »
I'd like to see someone demonstrate APRS and all the bells and whistles.
APRS is not just for tracking, one can also do messaging. 
I also understand that one can use a smartphone for APRS (APRSdroid or IBCNU). 
I'd like to see that, too.

I went to another club's presentation on APRS.   I was a little disappointed   >:( , as they did not
show how to use it, but only what APRS is and some features.   Another member was also
disappointed not to learn about various settings.    I guess I shouldn't feel too bad since I
don't even have a system to install at present, though I have many parts.

So, perhaps we could have two classes or presentations on APRS?   One could be to tell
what it is and what it can do.   The second could be actual settings and a demonstration of
sending a message or e-mail or something.

That sounds like a good idea Tom.  Perhaps we can get Nathan to do the presentation as he uses APRS.
