Very cool!

I did a similar experiment a few years ago, using an eByte +30dBm module
and mag-mount antennas (GPS + LoRa) on a car. My APRS-IS gateway was
not located well, so coverage was not great, but I did show up in APRS-IS
on 915MHz APRS :-)

Since then, I'd be more inclined to use LoRaWAN ABP (no ADR), particularly
since I have access to high-level LoRa gateways in the area. I'm seeing 20+
miles range with this configuration of the same science fair project hardware
I did APRS on.

In fact, that's an interesting thought - doing a ChirpStack integration to APRS-IS.
