Automatic Packet Reporting System

W8WLC and KE8DAF have set up a Club digipeater as W8WLC-15 for improved APRS coverage of Presque Isle County. The digi uses the receive antenna for the WB8TQZ voice repeater using notch/pass filters to isolate 144.39 MHz from 147.02 MHz. The strong 99.9 MHz transmitter frequency is also filtered out.

Another APRS site that has some interesting features, still based on Google Maps.

It seems that support for the embedded javascript map has been dropped by APRS.fi. Sorry.
