Re: Simulated Emergency Test via Satellite



Hi Bob,

Fully agree !

In case of emergency, when we need to forward messages, APRS
by the far the most reliable & efficient communication method:
- messages take 2 only seconds up/down airtime
- spelling family names in voice is error-prone
- voice would need voice recording, APRS has findu.com
- findu.com can be monitored worldwide (= auto forwarding)

See below the message I forwarded during a 17 degrees PCSAT pass.
