Baker to Vegas has come and gone, but APRS continues to be of interest to those experimenting with various digital modes.
Wouldn’t you like to know more about data communications? Did you know APRS radios can be used as packet digipeaters to extend the range of your VHF/UHF radios?
APRS allows packet radio to track real-time events, and HRO is fortunate to have as an employee Phil Pacier, AD6NH, a “retired 9-year veteran” of the Baker to Vegas Challenge Cup Relay.
Phil has been continually active in APRS for years, and was instrumental in setting up the first APRS trackers on the Baker to Vegas teams.
Phil has graciously volunteered to help educate anyone who can make it into HRO-Anaheim on Thursday, April 10 for an hour at 11AM on the ins and outs of APRS. Everyone is welcome, and if successful, we will try to schedule monthly forums on various topics of interest.
Remember, that’s Thursday, April 10 at 11AM. Come learn about APRS!
