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.
