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.
On September 12, The US House of Representatives passed the
"Amateur Radio Parity Act" to protect the rights of Radio Amateurs. Now is the time to contact your U.S. Senators and urge them to support this important legislation.
