C.A.R.S. deploys the first APRS Digipeaters

The APRS network is now a reality in Cyprus. With two permanent digipeater stations, on Pissouri and Ag. Fotios almost half of the island is covered by this amateur radio service. The frequency used is the pan European APRS frequency 144.800MHz and the mode is 1200bps AFSK. Some Cyprus amateurs have installed mobile beacons in their cars using GPS technology and they can be tracked while mobile. To check the stations that are live (if an internet gateway is operational) visit the findU website.
