TinyTrak [or TT4] on Google Groups
Not many of us are actively playing with or using APRS these days, even though MARCA has many operational APRS repeaters on several major mountain tops around Arizona.
WOW! I didn't know that!
Many MARCA members were early adapters and helped spread the popularity of APRS.
Some of us were quick to adapt a compact APRS device called the TT4 or TinyTrak 4. The TT4 does many of the functions of the defacto KPC-3 and KPC-3plus. This device is still one of the more popular APRS devices. It has gone through updates and modifications over the years. Anyone having invested in this little device knows how powerful it is and adaptable to stationary as well as mobile & portable applications.
WOW! I didn't know that either!
Well maybe its time to take a few minutes and give a break calling CQ de ... and catch up. Maybe you have some of the old links for the TT4 or TinyTrak or ... Byonics .... And maybe time has just really left you in the dark .... Did you know Yahoo Groups is sortof old technology and most Amateur Radio Groups have migrated to GOOGLE Groups !!! Even MARCA has disappeared from that landscape of knowledge sharing with Yahoo!!!
WOW! I didn't know that, just thought MARCA faded into the obscure reaches of the universe!
We'll talk about MARCA Groups some other time. For now lets focus on TinyTrak ...
