[aprssig] APRS USE IN EMERGENCIES

All, I wonder whether you've given consideration to using Tickets, our free
Open Source CAD package, in preparing for such situations.  It's been
deployed by a good number of ARES/RACES teams, particularly for use in
coordinating special events, and more than one team has kicked it into gear
when they were activated.

We recently released a version that includes a 'no-internet' option, clearly
applicable when the balloon is up.  Tickets accommodates APRS as well as
several other GPS-based tracking systems for position data.

This isn't the place for details, but there's information and free hosting
now available for public service agencies/teams (as well as the ultimate in
rapid deployment, a configuration operating off a thumb drive) at
www.ticketscad.org.
