> ...open APRSIS-CE you will see many Digi's in Boston!
How about ATV repeaters? If someone could supply a camera and ATV transmitter, we might be able to get it on board.
> How much APRS power? Ant gain? Antenna HAAT? Duration?
5W, 0DBd 40' only during the 8 hour cruise.
IF any APRS Canadians plan on a repeat of their war of aggression* during this 1812 commemoration, please let me know off line.
* Some historians claim it was a US war of aggression but then we don't like to let facts get in the way of political history... ;-)
> The USS Constitution will have an APRS tracker on
> board for its cruise in August. Im having trouble
> finding the date. I think this is a special 1812
> commemoration... and not the Annual turn-around cruise.
> Callsign will be USNAVY-3 the Third US Navy ship
> commissioned and oldest still in service. HAM call
> will be the US Naval Academy's callsign W3ADO.
