I am traveling, most of the time the Kenwood TM-D710E
transceiver is active and transmits an APRS beacon on
144.800 MHz using the callsign DD1US-9. It is connected
via an interface from Argent to an Garmin nüvi
350 GPS receiver. The Garmin GPS unit provides the precise
time and location for the APRS beacon and also displays
other APRS stations which are received by the TM-D710E
and provided to the Garmin nüvi. Thus no PC is
needed for this mobile APRS station.
to APRS I can operate on 2m band or 70cm band in FM.
Usually I am using a repeater to increase the operating
range. I am using the callsign DD1US/m (mobile).
My APRS beacon
transmits the frequency I am monitoring and where you
can reach me for a voice contact. If you do not have
an APRS station yourself you can also check my status
in the internet at www.aprs.fi or
if you simply click on the little map below. You will
then get my location and the present status of my mobile
