AT Golden Packet - APRS Projects

This subgroup shall serve as a place where members can discuss various projects as they pertain to ATGP. The main group will continue to serve as the primary communications vehicle for ATGP.

This subgroup is opt-in. You will have to register for access to it just the same as you did for the main group.

The initial purpose of this effort is to:

  • explore and establish potential alternative Automated Packet Reporting System (APRS) systems for use as part of the Appalachian Trail Golden Packet (ATGP) effort
  • it is anticipated that there will be field tests of designs as part of ATGP 2022
The effort is driven by the observation that:

  • ATGP has traditionally focused on using Kenwood D7xx APRS capable transceivers
  • Kenwood D7xx transceivers are increasingly rare and expensive on the open market
This adds potential risk to the ATGP activities.
It is anticipated that this effort will also:
  • increase interest and activity in APRS in general
  • increase the technical understanding of APRS technology
  • provide a series of potential reference implementations which may be extended and tailored for amateur radio use in APRS in general
Messages within this group will be visible to members in the main group.
