AvMap Geosat 5 APRS 注文


APRS運用を始めてそろそろ1年を迎えるにあたりちょっと変化を、と言うことで。 ポッチッとしてしました。
ML&S Martin Lynch and Sons Ltd.と言う英国のハムショップで比較的安く売っていましたので早速購入してみました。
AvMap Geosat 5 APRS
よくよく考えるとUSバージョンを購入したほうが、米国に出掛けた際に普通にナビとして使えるので良かったかもしれませんが、後の祭りです。 (何だかな。。。)

AvMap Geosat 5 APRS
A new TOUCH in APRS operations
A complete stand alone
The AvMap Geosat 5 APRS is an attractive, feature-rich personal navigator customized with Amateur Radio features. The Geosat 5 is practical and easy to use with a builtin highly sensitive 20 channel Sirf 3 GPS engine for fast and highly accurate fix. The ultra bright, non-glaring, 5 inch, TFT TOUCHSCREEN is easy to view. The Geosat 5 night mode and auto brightness features make viewing easy and hassle-free in any lighting condition.
The out-of-the-box solution for APRSc operations
The Geosat 5 comes with a Kenwood-ready cable and exclusive APRS bi-directional RS-232 APRS interface compatible with ALL current APRS ready Kenwood Radios, including the new TM-D710A/E. Geosat 5 provides GPS location information for your transmitted APRS beacons, and it shows received APRS information on its map display. The unit can store up to 1000 APRS Contacts and display them on the map.
APRSc icons
Watch APRS activity right on the screen and you can distinguish between fixed and mobile APRS stations. Static positions are represented by blue bulls-eye icons along with the associated call sign. Moving positions are represented by red triangles and associated call sign. If used with a Kenwood D710A/E and if set in the KENWOOD format sentence, the Geosat 5 supports standardized APRS icons.
Intercept To Target
You can set your Geosat 5 to navigate to your favorite APRSc mobile station and get rerouting instructions when the new position is reported!
Tactical Mode
Geosat 5 fully takes advantage of the Kenwood format sentence. The Tactical mode allows you to select an APRS c contact to see its speed, course and altitude in addition to its call sign and position.
