APRS (Automatic Packet Reporting System) is digital communications information channel for Ham radio.
Normally, I will be beaconing my position using SSID M0YMA-9 from my mobile.
Note: the beacon status will normally set to “Off Duty” as I do not monitor incoming beacons or messages while driving!
When operating from a portable location, the beacon-status text should give information about my location and/or operating frequency.
I am experimenting with a RaspberryPi 4 hosted applications… the intention is that it will (eventually) be commissioned as a full digipeater and igate. Watch this space…
This device is a very primitive set-up… a RaspberryPi 4 with a RTLSDR RTL2832U DVB-T Tuner Dongle connected to a small sub antenna – it is intended as a proof of concept.
