Can anyone identify which of those stations are APRS? As you know, anyone
on APRS can contact anyone on the planet live, on the air, from anywhere
with only a simple VHF APRS station due to the worldwide linked system.
But you MUST KNOW THE CALLSIGN for the message to go in one end and come
out the other. If we KNOW before hand all the calls of the APRS equipped
stations, then we can SEE and CHAT with them live. Without calls, it is
impossible. The APRS system does not have a mechanism for CQ.. (such a
capability would flood it).
Calls I know so far are WB4APR-7, W3ADO-7 and W3GV. I know there are
hundreds more, but still havent seen their calls. In any case, consider
usign the -7 SSID so we at least know that to guess at...
