Automatic Packet Reporting System (APRS) is an amateur radio-based system for real time tactical digital communications of information, such as current position reports, of immediate value in a local area. In addition, all such data is input into the APRS Internet System (APRS-IS) and distributed globally.
The IARC has a number of members active in APRS, some with digipeater and igate capabilities. Click here to view current APRS activity in the Iroquois area.
