Automatic Position Reporting System (APRS)

A fast-growing interest in amateur radio is automatic position reporting system or APRS. This is a system that combines the global positioning system (GPS) with packet radio to allow transmission of location data. Receiving stations can get real-time information on the location of a APRS-equipped station. Amateurs have already used APRS technology to assist in providing communication for sporting events.
