      I did almaost exactly what Rob did.

      Just fired up APRSIS32 on our Clubs Netbook and ran through the various menus/dropdowns taking questions as I went. Including a live APRS Chat with Lynn.

      That was sometime ago, not sure I could confidently do the same now with the latest Development version, Lynn has added so much new stuff so quickly I haven't been able to keep up.

      If I were to try the same now I would have to prepare a bit of a route through the menus/dropdowns and have a bit of a script prepared but still would do it that way rather than try anything on Powerpoint.

      The last couple presentation I did for APRS did not even use powerpoint.  I literally connected my laptop to a projector and did a setup of APRSIS32 on it.
      1.  Copied the file (in my case from a thumb drive to a usable location on teh hard drive
      2.  Ran the EXE file and stepped through setup
            a) Client Config window
                    left password at -1, but explained it
                    Set Quiet to 0 (zero)
                    Left everything else at defaults until later
                    Skipped Genius and NMEA until later
            b) Moved map to location and zoomed for detail
                > Menu <Transmit> to set location
            c) Let some data come through and then explain what is it is
                With current weather conditions, this could get rather interesting!

            d) Then I went back to explain filtering
                 Provided a handout of filtering page from the WEB
            e) after that, I started to cover allowing it to transmit
                  > first APRSIS password
                  > Then TNC configuration
          I had my car sending data and a MicroTrak8000 stuck in a window to ensure I'd see at least 1 station with a minimal setup in a conference room.  Luckily we had a window to set the Microtrack near.
            f) Beyond that, I gave info on the user group and WIKI (in the handout)
      3.  That pretty much covered the 30 minute talk I gave, but I did discuss a bit about trackers vs APRS stations.  This was somewhat discussed as stations came in.
      Almost everyone there commented about how much better it was to see a setup from scratch and watch it "pull in station" rather than see slides and not necessarily have access.

      The difference between CW and other digital
      modes comes down to 2 characters:
      ASCII Character 32 (hex 20) a defined space
      ASCII Character 12 (hex 0C) a carriage return (line designation)
