About the Event

What: Ham radio configuration. 


This day is dedicated to configuring APRS location tracking enabled ham radios to transmit and receive locations. For those who want to overlay the location info to a map on an Android or tablet phone, then we will do that too. You will need some additional gear for the map overlaying.

  • Android device with GPS radio. Most Samsung, Google, and Motorola phones have them. So do most Samsung tablets like the Galaxy Tab A.
  • TNC-to-Bluetooth adapter with 12V power.
  • A subscription to Backcountry Navigator is installed on this device.
  • APRSDroid app is installed on this device.
  • A mount for this device. Try the Mount Builder by Ram-Mounts.
