We are really excited to have our APRS tracker up and running for the Prescott Rally. What this means simply is: Friends, fans, and family can now watch our progress in real time on the internet! Updates should be around every 5 minutes. The map interface is now Google Maps, so it’s very easy to use and navigate. If you click on the dots on the tracked route you will be able to see the following:
KI6IUC-9 – Is my Amateur Radio call sign.
(The -9 is to indicate the rally car.)
Date and time in 24 hour UTC
speed in MPH, direction, altitude in feet
/Short message that will indicate our status.
