APRS In Your Pocket
I have been doing comparison testing between the two HT's in this photo, the UV-3R in camo being the original Baofeng, and the Black UV-3R+ being the current model available.
Why am I bothering you ask....well for one reason, the orginal UV-3R model seen here in camo, although not apparent in the photo, is somewhat smaller especially in the thickness, and when combined with the Mobilinkd bluetooth TNC, they prove to be a really nice compact form that fits nicely in my pocket.
I'll be writing this tiny station up soon, as there seems to be a lot of interest in what is proving to be my favorite APRS station these days, and I'll be sharing the tips and tricks required to make the UV-3R/Mobilinkd TNC play nice together.
I had this tiny APRS station running in my pocket recently while chasing Moxer-6 across the skies of eastern Alberta in my mobile, and the UV-3R/Mobilinkd combo talking via bluetooth to my Blackberry, were decoding packets received from Moxer-6 like all get out.
