(don't miss my LEMPS APRS-Telemetry site)

(NEW: Open APRS )

 

APRS is a system that allows to report the geographical position of stationary or moving objects in combination with a GPS receiver (cars, airplanes, hikers, bikers, ISS etc.). In addition to position data, telemetry data can be acquired remotely (e.g. temperature, wind-speed, any parameter that can be measured electronically). See my APRS LEMPS-Telemetry page. Data are distributed by packet-radio and can be fed into the Internet via APRS-gateways.

As of April 2005, a new routing paradigm was introduced world-wide to reduce the number of retransmitted duplicate packets (dupes). Please follow the simple rules below, for details check the "Fixing the APRS-network" page by Bob Bruninga. HB9BAwill no longer digipeat RELAY and WIDE, use WIDE1-1 instead!

The maps above shows the position of several amateur radio stations in Switzerland (top) and around Bern (bottom). Usually, the maps are updated every three to five minutes. My home is at HB9BA-2 in Zauggenried, my lab at HB9BA-15 in Bern.

Last update of the map: see lower left corner. If the image is missing or "broken", it is currently beeing saved. Reload or Shift-reload in a few seconds! Page reloads every 3 minutes!

HB9PVI and HB9BA in the Internet:

To see where I was driving around during the last 100 hours, see HB9PVI-9 in HB9 (mobile or portable, wait 2 minutes!!) or HB9PVI-9 local. Recently - (breadcrumb) HB9BA is our club in Solothurn and runs several APRS digipeaters (HB9BA-*) and an IGATE (HB9BA-2) in Zauggenried. The IGATE runs APRS4R software on a Sheeva plug computer.
HB9BA-8 is a weather station built with a microcontroller system (see my LEMPS page for details). HB9BA-4 is a WIDE digipeater located 1284 m above sea level on the Weissenstein ("white stone") mountain. It is presently running in test mode in Solothurn (not on VHF yet).
Check whether HB9PVI was recently digipeated by the International Space Station (ISS). Look for HB9PVI-5 or where I was on the road recently. iPhone and iPad are here HB9PVI-3. Handheld APRS is here HB9PVI-7.
Live JavAPRS in HB9 and central Europe is here! Here you will see the location of our club house in Solothurn HB9BA.
