APRS Electric Vehicles and Water Buoys

20:15 Fernando Luiz de Souza 0 Comments

The amateur radio Automatic Position Reporting System (APRS) is used to track things as diverse as an Electric Vehicle KT5TK-9 and a water buoy near Seattle KT5TK-8

APRS typically uses 1200 bps AX.25 FM packet radio in the 144 MHz band but it's also used on HF. You can see the track of KT5TK-9 or any other APRS station by following these steps:

- Go to http://aprs.fi/
- Enter the callsign e.g. KT5TK-9 in the 'Track callsign' field
- Click the 'Search' button
- To show the previous track select '3 days' in the 'Show last' field
