APRS

REGIONAL EMERGENCY COMMUNICATIONS & WEATHER ASSOCIATION


     

APRS in the Rockaways:

       Located at our present site the Rockaway station covers all the south shore of Long Island and the New Jersey shore past Sandy Hook. The station has the capability of remaining on the air for one week on emergency power and to be controlled and monitored remotely. The new Weather equipment will interface with APRS and transmit Weather data live 24 hrs. a day to the National Weather service NOAA.

APRS also has the ability to track moving stations using the GPS system and transmit and receive text messages. This will afford us the ability to communicate with any APRS station in the U.S. and to track our members in time of emergencies. The tracking feature frees the operator from reporting his current position and status. Therefore giving him the ability to communicate via voice for assistance or give aid.
