Pacific North West Area

Summary Information

Overview

The Pacific North West Area is home to many radio amateurs and has an active APRS network. The area includes Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana and British Columbia.

Challenges

Due to the large number of APRS users, the 144.390 APRS frequency is almost constantly in use and efforts are always being made to reduce excessive or redundant packets. Use of "old paradigm" {paths|digipaths] (RELAY and WIDE and TRACE and TRACEn-N) is strongly discouraged and most if not all Pacific North West Area digipeaters will no longer respond to these paths. Many users have moved to 9600 APRS on 440.800

Recommended path settings for UHF APRS 1200 stations

WIDE2-2 for fixed stations, WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1 or WIDE2-2 for mobiles, or WIDE2-1 if it flies.

Recommended path settings for UHF APRS 9600 stations

96UHF2-2 for fixed stations, 96UHF1-1,96UHF2-1 or 96UHF2-2 for mobiles, or 96UHF2-1 if it flies.
