APRS - Installing and Using
Automatic Packet Reporting System (APRS) is an amateur radio-based system for real time digital communications of information of immediate value in the local area. Data can include object Global Positioning System (GPS) coordinates, weather station telemetry, text messages, announcements, queries, and other telemetry. APRS data can be displayed on a map, which can show stations, objects, tracks of moving objects, weather stations, search and rescue data, and direction finding data.
RACES recommends that its members install and practice using the WinLink program because it will probably be used during an emergency/disaster and we will need to support it!
Updates to new forms version are now available for automatic update.
Open RMS Express/WinLink Express while connected to a network with internet access and the auto-update feature will update the forms to version 126.96.36.199.
Review the ICS 213RR form so you will have some familiarity with it in the event you will need to use it.
