2014 = 600,000 APRS packets transfered
Thanks to Sam and Glen, I have not only fulfilled a lifelong dream of earning a Ham operators license, but I have also been able to give back to the APRS community.
With Glen's economical OLPC setup, some copper tubing, and a site that apparently filled a void, this little setup looks like it will have uploaded about 600,000 position packets to the APRS site by year-end.
Other than a small glitch in the software, apparently we had to tell the computer to learn how to keep its battery charged, it has worked without my interference all year.
I would encourage you to take advantage of the resources available here and give back to both the ham and aviation community.
