And if they have an APRS radio and change their SYMBOL to the
lighthouse symbol, then we can see them on http://aprs.fi

Or, if enough of them select the Lighthouse symbol, then you can

And, they can all communicate with each other and anyone else on

with the first two words of the message being "CQ LOTA ..."

See how www.aprs.org/cqsrvr.html
