Here's my efforts w/messaging to/from our FD site...

Since the APRS setup (APRSDos) was immediately next to the GOTA station, I sent a few texts from home to 
improve their operation and advise our sattellite operator which coax was what.

Since we have no internet on our FD site, I couldn't remember the exact way to call other FD sites, other than by callsign.
What I would like to see is some updated info on "How to use APRS at Field Day".... which I Googled and came up with the following:

http://wa8lmf.net/bruninga/aprs.html  Only three years old...  it get's better...

http://www.usna.edu/Users/aero/bruninga/aprs/fd2006.html  Only five years old!

http://www.aprs.org/fd2005.html   Only six years old!

http://www.eham.net/articles/5877   Only eight years old!

How about some 'new' info, preferably under ONE website?

Jus thinking outloud... ok flame retardant suit on!
