Dane/Iowa ARES/RACES discusses APRS - A disconnected Node at the July 15, 2020 Meeting

Jeff lead a discussion on APRS for the July 15 meeting. Having toyed with it last year at Bike the Barns, particularly with a setup that was not connected to the internet, he wanted to demo how he set up a node using his Kenwood TH-D72 and a small laptop and was able to track SAG vehicles while unconnected to the internet. He also demonstrated how connecting it to the internet both receives and transmits local locations.
Sadly there is no zoom video of this meeting, however the presentation and a link to the software used can be found below.
