Don’t forget APRS at Field day.   Have fun!



Independent of scoring (APRS gets no respect at FD anyway)…  it is still a
good time to sit at the keyboard and make contacts.  Who cares about points
when there are so many people on the air!



Remember CQSRVR lets you call CQ everywhere in the world from your APRS laptop
station out in the field.  Just send a message to CQSRVR with the first two
words as CQ FD followed by your info.



Everyone else in the world who has also sent such a message is
automatically logged into the CQSRVR and will get a copy.  Once you have
sent yours, then you too will get a copy of all future such messages from
everyone else.



But that is just to make the call and see who is out there.  Then you need
to do a 1-on-1 message with any other callsign you see to make the contact!



See details:  http://aprs.org/cqsrvr.html



You have that expensive APRS radio, USE IT!
