From the Ham Radio at Maker Faire 2009 - APRS demo PART 3. Chris Kantarjiev, K6DBG demonstrates APRS (Automatic Position Reporting System) gear that he has collected, built and modified. This segement features a modified Linksys router (WRT54 series) and a small APRS tracking kit, "OpenTracker," produced by Argent Data Systems. (Video by NQ1R/ARRL. www.arrl.org)
Chris is running an APRS gateway on the Linksys router, taking the need for a computer out of the picture. It talks to the Linksys router over it's internal serial port. A TNC connection cable hangs out the back.
