APRS Igate

I have now got an APRS gateway running at home. It is running from a home made jim-slim antenna made from 1/2 inch cooper pipe. The antenna is hanging in the attic. It has worked very well.

I got the idea and insight from watch Ham Nation episode 76. You should watch the whole show but if you are only interested in APRS then jump to the 19 min mark.

I’m running the following software.

agw packet engine

My work mate Aaron (KD8PHH) also has put one up. Very easy to do.

Good Luck
