We would like to setup APRS in our rig in case something happened to us .. our family/friends will know where we are.
Went to the ham radio outlet today to see what they could do for me my setup (Yaesu 2800m and Baja540c)... and it appeared it was going to be about $300 to do what i wanted. I would need to get a complete kit that included a GPS antenna because they couldn't figure out how to setup a cable for my GPS.
Does anyone know of a way to connect a Ham transmitter to a Lowrance unit? I have the big marine plugs on the back.
Anyone use Byonics stuff? Tinkpak?
Any insight on this project would be greatly appreciated. Im just learning about it.. today is day 1 for me.
