Hi Folks,

Well, I'm off to Burning Man tomorrow, and I decided to experiment with
an APRS tracker for the trip, and while I'm there. My APRS call sign
will be KB7ABA-7 and I hope to have it on the air a fair amount of time.
So for example you can go to one of these web sites to see where I'm at:

https://aprs.fi/
http://www.db0anf.de/app/aprs/
http://www.aprsfl.net/findu.html

The Full URL for aprs.fi would be something like:
https://aprs.fi/#!call=a%2FKB7ABA-7&timerange=3600&t ail=3600

Sometimes we will be flying in a plane and perhaps out of range of any
receivers while in the cascades, over crater lake etc... So don't be
alarmed if the trail goes dead for awhile. ;-) you should see lots of
packets around BM except when in our camp at 3:15 and Esplanade. Then I
will probably put it on the charger.

    Ciao!

Hi Cliff -

Very cool!  I see you're underway.

I so wish I was with you in the air, en route to Black Rock.

Looks like you're going to fly over Crater Lake - I hope the viewing's
clear.

-Michael
