I’m interested if anyone has thought about using the Asset Tracker’s GPS logging with APRS, the amateur radio position tracking system.
The end-to-end picture would look like this:
- GPS on asset tracker shield
- Cellular network on Particle Electron
- Webhook listener that collects the position data
- APRS-IS client that posts position data for the device to gateway (port 14551)
Alternatively, if someone has made a suitable VHF radio that could be used to transmit the GPS data, you could send position reports over the air.
I’m throwing this out there hoping that someone will 1) think it’s interesting and 2) have more insight into how to build the APRS client side of things, which appears to be documented only in code fragments.
thanks and 73,
