Introduction to APRS class


We will be conducting an  Introduction to APRS class on Tuesday October 4th at White River Twp Station 51 beginning at 6:30pm.  The Automatic Position Reporting System is used primarily on 2-meter radios across the country and around the world.   Practical applications include tracking mobiles, reporting current weather conditions and texting short messages from your HT or mobile radio. 

Please let me know If you can attend the class.  We should have a good time learning how to play with this active/passive mode of Amateur Radio.

Amateur Radio Parity Act Passes in the US House of Representatives!

“The bill is passed without objection.” With those words, Amateur Radio history was made on September 12, when the US House of Representatives approved the Amateur Radio Parity Act, H.R. 1301 on a voice vote under a suspension of the rules. The focus of the campaign to enact the legislation into law now shifts to the US Senate. The House victory culminated many years of effort on ARRL’s part to gain legislation that would enable radio amateurs living in deed-restricted communities to erect antennas that support Amateur Radio communication. The legislation faces significant obstacles to passage in the US Senate, however.  via American Radio Relay League |http://ift.tt/2c7r4r1
