APRS = Automatic Packet Reporting System --[[User:JosephDurnal|JosephDurnal]] 09:39, 28 August 2007 (Pacific Daylight Time)

I'm confused - is it Packet, or Position?  Earlier today I was sure it was packet, that is how it is described on http://www.ew.usna.edu/~bruninga/aprs.html, but other sources say Position. If it is really position and you know for sure, please change it back to position and cite something that confirms it.  Thanks  --[[User:JosephDurnal|JosephDurnal]] 12:02, 28 August 2007 (Pacific Daylight Time)

APRS was originally "Automatic Packet Reporting System" and was changed by Bob Bruninga at some point to "Position" --- and is referred to that way almost universally now. Bob's top-level web page still says "Packet", but the PDF version of the [http://www.tapr.org/aprs_working_group.html official APRS spec] calls it "Position" (even though the HTML page that <em>links</em> you to the PDF spec says "Packet"!) so that would be a pretty definitive statement that the correct name is "Position" and that there is considerable confusion and outdated web information all over the place.  Bob has often regretted the name change, because it has pigeon-holed APRS as a vehicle tracking system, where it is very much more, but the name is pretty well established as "position" now.  I'll go to the pages the pages where you changed "Position" to "Packet" and put them back to the way the spec is.  --[[User:KM5VY|KM5VY]] 10:21, 30 August 2007 (Pacific Daylight Time)

Thanks - sorry for creating the work. I'm still pretty new to APRS, but when I made the change, I wqas pretty sure I was correct. The trouble with wikis is that some of us just think we know what we are talking about. 73 de Joe NE3R --[[User:JosephDurnal|JosephDurnal]] 05:07, 31 August 2007 (Pacific Daylight Time)
