aprs
automatic position reporting system


introduction
As the Internet and email have made inroads into the information available on the packet BBS system, APRS is fast becoming the next big thing for packet radio. This is not to say that the BBS system using software such as FBB, RLI, MSYS, and others is dead.

APRS is known formally as the Automatic Position Reporting System. It's a system which, unlike PBBS's, nodes and DX clusters, uses an UNCONNECTED protocol to transmit your exact position, a symbol denoting the type of station you're running and a brief comment about it. It also uses direct keyboard-to- keyboard "chatting", has direction-finding capabilities and much more. With interest growing, and with the technical nature of APRS as it stands now, we have added APRS coverage to the SEITS pages.
