This is an example of something that I do every day with APRS:


So, disseminate various kinds of useful information on demand. Such
information is either locally generated or extrapolated from public web

I'd like to provide other information as well, but it's not very easy to
find public resources that are of common interest and which at the same
time have a license that allows content re-distribution.

The most useful thing amongst those that I have implemented is, in my
opinion, the APRS emergency monitoring function. I will try to implement
more services with time.
