Join us for this presentation. APRS is now in its 21st year! APRS is digital communications information channel for Ham radio. As a single national channel (see map at right), it gives the mobile ham a place to monitor for 10 to 30 minutes in any area, at any time to capture what is happening in ham radio in the surrounding area. Announcements, Bulletins, Messages, Alerts, Weather, and of course a map of all this activity including objects, frequencies, satellites, nets, meetings, Hamfests, etc. The APRS network has grown to most countries with strong Amateur Radio populations.

The Kids had a blast (and so did we) at the Silver Spring Maker Faire. HacDC and HacDC Amateur Radio Club partnered with Montgomery Amateur Radio Club. We will be back again next year.
Tom Rozzell, amateur radio operator, WB4ZTT is back “on the air” after a 20+ year absence from his favorite hobby-amateur radio, thanks to HacDC Amateur Radio Club, who has donated Tom a Kenwood dual band Handy Talkie and patio mounted antenna. Tom can be found on the Marc Repeater on 146.955 mhz. Tom enjoys “rag chewing” and photography among other things.
