[edit] APRS Applications

APRS stations can implement one or more station roles.

[edit] For example

A station can be a transmit-only tracker, it can be a tracker and a weather station, it can be a combined I-Gate, weather station and digipeater. There are all sorts of combinations. There are even some special-purpose stations that act as email gateways or callsign lookup servers. The possibilities are wide-ranging.

In support of the station roles that are desired, the station will need some capabilities. These might include

  • radio receive
  • radio transmit
  • location information either entered by hand or obtained from a GPS
  • connection to the internet
  • connection to multiple radio bands/modes/frequencies/services (Amateur HF Packet for example)
  • weather data either entered by hand or obtained from weather sensors
  • a user interface
  • a map display
  • a computer for file storage or database
  • other (?)

After an APRS operator determines what application (use) he is interested in, then he needs to examine the roles needed and build one or more stations with the capabilities required.
