The 26th (Sunday) is the annual Golden Packet event where hams
attempt long distance APRS text messaging along the long
national trails. In 2009 was our first attempt at the 2000 mile
Appalachain trail where we hoped to make it work over 14 hops.
This year we hope western hams will activate the Pacific Crest
trail, or the Continental Divide trail or others...
