[aprssig] Economical APRS

I built my first APRS station for less than $100.  But it seems with
the popularity of APRS & Winlink that used TNCs are priced much higher
than they were 3 years ago.  Any suggestions from the group on ways to
get new hams on APRS without spending a lot of money?  Most of the
interested parties I've talked to won't be comfortable building
interfaces, maybe not even cables, we'll see.  I had a couple of local
hams tune into http://aprs.fi this weekend while we were using APRS to
manage the SAG vehicles for the cycle across Maryland event, now they
want to do more!  I hope to get them participating in the network
sooner than later.  I never new that the web site would be a good tool
to get folks interested!

Thanks & 73 de Joseph Durnal NE3R
