www.mirex.net Support for Mirex Experiment



Monday is the Mirex School experiment! 

www.mirex.net is presently set up to display only those stations which 
have successfully digipeated through Mir. There is also a oribtal 
tracking system feeding Mir's current position into the server. This 
makes it the ideal means to follow the activity via the internet:

http://www.mirex.net/

There is also a page without the digi filter, showing all the data:

The dos program MIRMON, an excellent way to follow the experiment on rf, 
is available without charge from the TAPR ftp site:

ftp://ftp.tapr.org/tapr/SIG/aprssig/files/dosstuff/APRSdos/MIRMON2.ZIP

Versions of APRS for other platforms are also available on the TAPR 
server.

Another reminder. Most stations in North America should not transmit! 
This is an experiment focusing on schools. Only the following stations 
are authorized to transmit:

    SCHOOLS or other Youth Groups
    ALL non-North American stations
    TRAINS
    Boats
    Aircraft
    BackPack portable... running on battery power..  Use runner symbol.
                         or Campground.

Full details of the test are available from Bob Bruninga's web site:
