>> New for JOTA 2007!
>> Consider taking APRS to your JOTA scout event this year.
>> APRS now has a global CQ function that will allow any
>> APRS station in the field, to call CQ to all other
>> similar stations all over the world.
>> APRS is a two-way tactical real-time communications
>> system. It is an excellent demo that can be interesting
>> to scouts while they are waiting their turn to operate
>> one of the regular HF JOTA stations.
>> This year, a system called CQSRVR has been written by
>> Pete, AE5PL, which will receive logons from field
>> stations and turn around and send out those CQ's to
>> all other SCOUTS stations. When they see these, then
>> they can do the normal APRS messaging between
>> individual stations anwhere on the globe that is in
>> range of an Igate.
>> See the web page:
>> It is operational now so you can practice. Just
>> send an APRS message to CQSRVR and include the
>> two keywords CQ SCOUTS as the first two words at
>> the start of your message. Usually you follow
>> that with a second CQ SCOUTS which will actually
>> get delivered to all other similar stations.
>> To help you remember that a SPACE is required after
>> the first CQ SCOUTS and no other delimiters, it is
>> best to just send CQ SCOUTS CQ SCOUTS followed by
>> whatever text you want all other scout stations to see.
>> CQ SCOUTS CQ SCOUTS from Annapolis, Maryland, USA
>> Hopefully, all other SCOUT stations will see your
>> message and will respond to your actual call to
>> make the contact.
>> Good luck!
