Don't forget, APRS can now do global CQ's.

Although we don't get any special points for FD, APRS still
makes a great demo!  

Show those old fuds how you can communicate anywhere in the
world via APRS in real time!

CQ FD works via the centralizeed CQSRVR application written by
AE5PL.  Just send an APRS message TO CQSRVR and compose it like

CQ FD CQ FD from .... Your info here.

And it will be delivered to all other stations that have sent a
similar message.  You will remain logged on for 12 hours since
the last message you sent.  Then as you see incoming such CQ's
from other stations, you send them the usual APRS message to
confirm the contact.  See details on:


For clarity, you have to repeat the original CQ twice, since the
first copy is stripped off by the CQSRVR.

Operate APRS at Field Day like never before! To heck with the
points!  C U There!
