Transmit real-time information via radio amateur packets APRS protocol to receive with handheld radios.

Description

Transmit real-time information via radioamateur packets from a Low Earth Orbit (LEO) using the Automatic Position Reporting System (APRS) protocol. Will allow remote traveler's to access the satellite for worldwide position/status reporting and messaging even in the case of using simple handheld or mobile radios with Omni-directional whip antennas. Distant travelers, boats at sea, and stations in many parts of the world are presently unable to use the APRS system when on distant trips.
