APRS over CB? Why not!

From EI7GMB

Hi there. Long time no see. Busy enough moving home, then travelling around, and some health issues as well but thats ok. Now a pile up of QSL cards waiting for reply so my sincere apologies for all of you guys. I'll post them up ASAP but it would require printing off another batch, cut and fill up details - all hand made job. Time to get things forward I suppose.

But today my recent discovery - an APRS over CB band. I've heard APRS buzz on CB band while tuning up through HF. W@as surprised a bit so got my TMD-700e teamed with HF rig and the outcome was pretty astonishing. German CB operators are running APRS using 27.235 FM and various APRS hardware and I got it decoded successfully here in Ireland while nice eS opening was booming from 12m to 4m. See the gallery for a picture of German CB APRS.

They have APRS nodes gathered around The NET thing. They're even running a website http://www.cbaprs.de/.

Well done guys!
