Hi Folks

As matter of interest is there a way of:-

1. Sending a beacon to FINDU using a mobile phone perhaps by SMS or

2. Sending a beacon to FINDU via the net without running UI-View or
just a beacon direct to Findu

Presuming one is travelling or on tour and has a notebook when staying at
location with access to broadband there would be little problem running
UI-View but should you only have access to dial-up this may not be
but sending a short beacon to FINDU could be.

If the only access to the net is via an Internet Cafe or similar that
not have APRS software installed a means of sending a brief beacon to
would be ideal.

If one is in a remote RF area even with HF this is a  possibility but has
access to a mobile phone network if an SMS or similar beacon can be sent
Findu this also ideal in such a circumstance.

Is there a means of carrying out any of the above?

PS: With all the above I am presuming that one either has a GPS with them
knows latitude and longitude of where there are.
