I'm still working out the bugs but we should have a working APRS setup for the trip. Awesome!
For those who don't know, APRS stands for Amateur (Radio) Position Reporting System. My car will have a 50 watt transmitter strapped to a computer, and via the computer, a GPS. This will send out a data burst at 144.39 Mhz every few minutes, including speed and bearing. Very awesome stuff.
And as the map clearly says:
NOT TO BE USED FOR LIFE SUPPORT PURPOSES
Whatever that means.
