We have had great success with APRS Meteor Scatter on 6 meters, but I have
not done it since 1996?  Maybe its time for some new blood.  Let me see if
I can find the results of our first National APRS Meteroscatter test.

Everyone, meet Ron, VE8RT who needs to communicate probably by APRS using
Meteorscatter from the great Northwest...  He currently is not on the
APRSSIG and so reply here so we can see the interest, and I will forward
any useful replies to him.  Bob, WB4aPR

Hi Bob,

    I'm looking for a forum, if there is one, on meteor scatter and APRS.
I'm one of less than a score of active amateur radio operators here in the
Northwest Territories of Canada.  The majority of amateur radio activity
is here in Yellowknife (the capital), with distances of over a thousand
kilometres seperating some of us.  HF propagation is generally poor and
unreliable, so I'm looking into 6M meteor scatter APRS or other digital
modes for emergency communications.

    I had joined the TAPR APRS SIG forum for a few days, having posted my
introduction and my interest in meteor scatter APRS, but it didn't
generate any replies (so I unsubscribed).

    Would you have any suggestions?
