Everyone, while in a national park, please confirm APRS activity on 144.39
and report if nothing heard. APRS has a goal of assuring APRS coverage in
all the national parks.
It is so great to see another ham in the park and go meet them because of
their APRS beacon. Statistically, there are at least a dozen hams a day
in the big parks... yet without a beacon, its dark ships in the night...
If no digipeaters cover the park, please report so we can update our
databse of all National Parks with APRS coverage.
> I will be operating satellites SO-50 and FO-29 from DM29
> in eastern Nevada on February 21-23, 2016.
