[aprssig] APRS in the National Parks

Was in Arizona at the beginning of the month.  I setup my D700 in my rental
SUV. We stayed at Tusayan, just outside the park and got a couple of APRS
position reports in.  I did not drive in the park.

We did drive though the Sunset Volcano and Wupatki Parks and ny cranking up
the power to 50 W, got a decent trace.  For awhile APRS was my only means of
communicating with civilization as I had the wrong tone code for a repeater
that I could hear from time to time.

As we approach Travel season, lets update the list
of National Parks with APRS:

With over 120,000,000 visitors per year, Some parks may
have over 250 hams visiting PER DAY.  Lets make sure
APRS works there...

Send me updates.
