Re: APRS in Japan/ Are there APRS servers as well



Hi All,
There are a lot of APRS Server for Europe and North America like
sweden-east.aprs.net, aprs.net.au or ahubwest.net and so on.
ISS, PCsat and AO40 and a couple of other Satellites are only monitored by
mentioned servers as object and not accessible for Transmission APRS data.
Dose know anyone some other APRS server for Japan, Australia and other
Continents because i had no chance to hunt any other APRS station other
North America and Europe?
