We all understand the meaning of that sentence to
be your interest in APRS "receiving" applications. (great!)
But to make sure there is no further interpretation beyond
that, I can use this to preach to the choir:
APRS is a communications system for tactical real-time
human to human information exchange. It is not
just a map system, it was designed as a tool for RF
Meaning, there are some MAP applications that display
APRS positions on a map, but that have not fully
implemented the full communications protocol. Those
are not "APRS" applications. They are MAP displays.
for what it's worth...
