A GPS to monitor hurricanes!
18 May 2012
At HAMVENTION 2012 AvMap presents Geosat 6 APRS' new weather function.
AvMap Geosat 6 APRS, the satellite navigator for APRS operations, continues its evolution to offer better services to the Radio Ham community.
AvMap announces that, with a free software Update, a new real time Weather feature will be available on Geosat 6 APRS, thanks to the collaboration with Byonics llc.
Just connect Geosat 6 APRS to any analog radio transceiver through Byonics TinyTrak4 and the sat nav map will show not only the position of WX stations, but as well all the relevant current weather info. Click on a WX station to open the full info page including:
-Rain in the last 24 h
This will allow more and more Radio Amateurs to help in supplying emergency communications for the upcoming hurricane season.
Don’t miss the Automatic Position Reporting System (APRS) Forum held by Bob Bruninga WB4APR on Friday 18th May 11:30 – 12:30 (room 1) , during which Don Arnold W6GPS will show a demo of this new feature.
