This has never happened. Cat burglars drive around a neighborhood and notice people's routines before committing the crime. They don't go on aprs.fi.

lol this is so laughably funny.


Anyone that has a mild interest in APRS and is worried about your privacy, there is a setting on the radio to make your GPS co-ordinates not accurate by hundreds of yards.


There is some activity in my neck of the woods. Mainly truck drivers that go by on the interstate. APRS messaging is really cool. Lately I have been able to send and receive text messages from and to my radio. How cool is that?
