More APRS over HF

This weekend I joined in with some more APRS over HF using the APRS Messenger Software sending position reports and messages using a laptop connected to the radio.

As it had stopped snowing and raining I got chance to take my portable kit out to the beach at Stokes bay.

 

I was able to send out a beacon that was received as far away as Puerto Rico (4200Miles) using 20watts.

Im hoping to be doing a lot more of this, when its not raining. Stop and say hello if you are passing by I am more than happy to explain it all to anyone interested.

Heres a short video of the set up on Sunday
