APRSdroid worked well last year, from Darwin to Sydney.

I fly a lot, I wish I could avoid it but I have bills to pay...

Some airlines provide on-board internet access, there is a small amount of data you can move for free. I was thinking in a mechanism to obtain my GPS location from the aircraft mode-S transponder broadcast and then upload my posits to APRS-IS


Too complex (it seems)


Looking at aprs.fi <http://aprs.fi>  today, I saw a person doing something similar over Canberra and Sydney, but only at low flight levels:

Is there someone here with experience with airliners? I have seen people beaconing from private and recreational, but never from big birds.
