On a related note, I’m working on an apartment building’s basement
temperature monitor that uses APRS because the area has no Wi-Fi, it’s in a
basement in an 8 story building (so i can’t beam Wi-Fi or zigbee or LoRA to
it effectively), cell network access is present but an LTE module, SIM,
and service plan for even a few MB/month is extremely overpriced.
Meanwhile, there is a digipeater/iGate well within range that receives
packets from the location using my Baofeng UV-5R on low power.
I want to monitor the basement because I think it stays cold/warm enough
throughout the winter that it could be a good place to store my lagering
Arguably the CWOP weather stations dotted all over the country is a perfect
example of a constellation of sensors reporting their current weather
situation, routed to NWS and distributed to the public through a basic
What other applications (besides weather and beer temp monitoring) would
APRS IoT enable?
