There are currently several commonly used APRS trajectory browsing methods:
BG6CQ server: 188.8.131.52 Automatic positioning, data viewing is convenient, fast and convenient, a variety of quick pointing, recommended.
BA7CK APRS data server is fast and convenient, supports track playback, direct view, and recommendation.
Digital trunking, gateway knowledge
APRS digital relay: A data relay device that is used to expand the APRS data transmission range and is specially set up at a high place. It is generally composed of a radio station, an antenna, a power source, and a terminal node controller (Terminal Node Controller) having a function of forwarding data. ‘TNC’) composition. The digital relay works by receiving decoding, temporary storage, and data judgment after receiving the APRS data in the radio wave, and identifying whether the data is required to be forwarded. If the data is not required to be forwarded, the data will be discarded; The data request is forwarded, and the digital relay will send the received data after the radio channel is idle, and the digital relay’s own station call sign is added to the data for identification.
APRS Gateway: Users can send data to the APRS Internet Service Network, and can selectively receive real-time data in the APRS Internet Service Network by setting some filtering rules. Therefore, the user can implement APRS communication through various terminal devices that can connect to the Internet through a mobile phone, a tablet computer, and display the received station information in the APRS software.
Most of the functions of this unit APRS can be operated by handheld keyboard menu. At the same time, the supporting software and intuitive interface provide more abundant options. It is recommended to set the native APRS function through the supporting software.
Use the standard data cable to connect the companion APRS software to set up the unit:

APRS application in outdoor activities
In recent years, the APRS system has been widely used in amateur radio enthusiasts and has shown unique advantages in applications such as outdoor emergency rescue.
In outdoor activities such as outdoor adventures and outdoor emergency rescues, organizers and commanders need to keep track of the specific location of personnel and vehicles. This not only ensures the safety of personnel, but also informs appropriate personnel and vehicles in real time when necessary. The right task to improve the overall efficiency of action. In this process, the location tracking function of the APRS system is indispensable.
Taking outdoor emergency rescue as an example, you can easily understand the importance of the APRS system and its operation mode: it is especially important to grasp the real-time position of teammates in areas such as mountainous areas where there is no communication network coverage and complex terrain. However, at this time, the players cannot use the mobile phone software to transmit coordinate information, and it is difficult to accurately describe the location of the location using the radio voice communication device. At this time, if the device is frequently used for voice communication, on the one hand, the workload will be increased. On the other hand, occupying the communication frequency for a long time will also affect the reporting situation of other teams. In addition, frequent calls can deplete the valuable power of the handstand too much.
The best choice at this time is to use the APRS system to control the position of the players. When the APRS amateur station used by each emergency rescue team has the same data input/output interface as the GPS device and has the same transmission communication protocol, the APRS amateur station and the GPS device seem to have no associated devices. data transmission. Only through the appropriate matching link, the APRS station can input the received other team coordinate information into the GPS device as a waypoint output, and display and navigate on its screen.
Amateur radio also reports its real-time data to the command by radio waves. The data includes the latitude and longitude of the team’s real-time location, altitude, team movement speed, direction, and unique call sign representing the owner’s identity. The data is decoded. Displayed on the computer screen of the command. If the command can connect to the Internet, you can also forward the received data stream to the Internet, and you can also observe the entire group’s movement track in real time through the computer.
