Since then we've been coaching sixth graders at Jefferson Middle School in Rochester, NY

Pocket Packet

I put these together in the mid 90s just to show how small a packet station can get. They really work, but I don't use them for anything practical. I can actually hold these in one hand and type/write with the other. I run APRS on the HP.

 packet setup

 In the mid 1990s I used this setup to send road rally scores to the finish line ahead of the rallyers. I actually connected to nodes at 55 m.p.h. The GPS was used in standalone mode (not APRS).    at STPR 2000 I worked packet with Roger and Kenneth
