APRS

APRS Automatic Position Reporting System

APRS is a system developed by Bob Bruninga, WB4APR, which uses amateur radio to transmit position reports, weather reports, and messages between users.

UiView 32 Software is free and allows you to monitor the position of stations via a radio and tnc or by connecting to the internet.

FINDU is an internet site that you can search for the location of stations. Another search site is Google APRS Maps.

The Tiny Tracker and Open Tracker are interfaces that you connect to a radio and GPS to broadcast your position.
