In the comming few days the Classic Adelaide Car rally will be running
in Adelaide. WICEN SA are providing support to the special stages.. APRS
will be used to track vehical movements as well as messaging from the
carrying the car scores/times .. The APRS will be running on the Adelaide
APRS network (145.175 National APRS frequency) and as a consequence the
traffic will be observable via the Igate feed onto the National APRS Igate
servers.. Here is some info that some may find of interest..
