This is a non commercial site ran by APRS enthusiasts in OD5 land.
If you are a licensed ham, just starting up in APRS or an APRS user and want to know more about APRS, this is the site you want to be in.
We have used this technology successully in events as diverse as the Asian Games in Qatar, the Canadian cup in Ottawa and of course our local APRS network in Lebanon.
So, what is APRS ?
APRS is an OPEN SOURCE GPS/Weather/Short Message protocol that has been developed for use on AX.25 networks. It is equally as applicable to almost any other network imagineable.
In plain english, it is a packet system sent over 2m FM, but instead of sending just messages you can send : Live GPS Positions, Weather information, DX clusters etc...
In a ham spirit ruled community we beleive that the more we are, the Merrier.
Tracker: Is a small modem that you implement in a car, bike, boat that transmits your position to Digipeaters
Digipeater: Is a Digital Repeater that replays the APRS information that it recieves. If you have a QTH vith a sweet spot and want to run your own digipeater to offer APRS coverage in your area, we will be more than happy to help you program it and install it.
Igate: Is a gateway between the VHF 2m, the HF, and the internet APRS network.
In Lebanon and surrounding countries it started to flourish in the end of 2006.
