A few years ago, there was a crash at the National Championship Air Races inI had a similar experience when, several years ago, we had a nasty
windstorm that nailed the power grid and it was lights out for 5 days.
That's when I realized that Ham Radio with APRS was THE ultimate
situational awareness information tool. It still is.
The promise of talking to Australia got me to get myIt was just this week that we on a different discussion list realized
that an experimental HF SDR data radio system can now be had for less
than $200... That would be a RXTX three band transceiver and a new
RPI 2. I know that station will easily WSPR to Australia, probably
WSJT or APRS-messenger and maybe even on APRS HF packet with the new
bit correcting software.
Are we having fun yet?
