A third topic is that 3 years ago I prepared detail APRS maps of FT AP
Hill for the jamboree, but I never heard if anyone ever used it. These
days, since any THD7 HT with a GPS plugged into it is a complete personal
APRS tracking system, it might be worthwhile to make APRS useful at the
Jamboree again... These maps appear if you have the East coast maps
With the worldwide internet linked APRS system, all we need is one
digipeater in the area and Scouts worldwide can zoom in to the jamboree
and see what is happening live...
Are there any APRS hams on this list?

This will be my eighth year teaching the Radio Merit Badge Class.
