APRS

The APRS Protocal Reference describes APRS as a packet communications protocol for disseminating live data to everyone on a network in real time. Its most visual feature is the combination of packet radio with the Global Positioning System (GPS) satellite network, enabling radio amateurs to automatically display the positions of radio stations and other objects on maps on a PC. Other features not directly related to position reporting are supported, such as weather station reporting, direction finding and messaging.

APRS can be used for ARES events such as marathons, 5K races, or bike races.  APRS can also be used for RACES activities such Search and Rescue or other local government activities.
