A) Camper sends automatically a position message are called "beacon text" * sent, as required by VHF 2m 144.800 MHz and text messages / messages. Content example "Standing in front of a beautiful bay Lefkas".

B) APRS Kurzwelle

Hier gibt es zwei Möglichleiten APRS Positionen zu senden:

a. mit StandartTracker wie TinyTrack usw.  siehe: Trackerhanbuch PDF

Ein Info findet man auch hier:  http://www.intermar-ev.de/Index.php?INTERMAR-Technik:INTERMAR-VHF:INTERMAR-APRS
allerdings nicht mehr aktuell , 20m Gate ist außer Betrieb, aber es gibt noch 30m Gates. (Rolf DK4XI)

b. Ideal bei Europa Touren und nach Afrika (zB Marokko)  ist RPR- APRS die ideale Möglichkeit Positionen zu senden. In den meisten Gebieten ist es dort nicht möglich via 2m UKW eine Pos abzusetzen. Deshalb wenn man auf Langfahrt ist, 2m APRS und KW-APRS mit RPR Tracker.
