APRS TX allows licensed Ham Radio operators to beacon their position details to the APRS-IS network using the internet.

The following information is sent in each position packet:

* Latitude
* Longitude
* Speed
* Altitude
* Bearing
* Beacon message (22 characters max)
* APRS Symbol

Now includes messaging between APRS stations.

Within the app you will need to specify your Callsign and Passcode. Pass codes are only available to licensed Ham Radio operators.

Passcodes can be generated here:

Within the app you may change the following information:

* Callsign
* Passcode
* APRS-IS Server URL
* Beacon Message
* Beacon Time Interval
* APRS Symbol for choosing which icon will be displayed on APRS maps.

You may also use this app on iPad devices but a continuous location will be required, normally through GSM or WiFi.

Please note: This app uses the GPS feature of your device. Continued use of this app may drain the device battery sooner.

Please email if you have any feature requests or bug issues. If you leave feedback reporting an issue I have no way of communicating with you to resolve the issue.

Was working...

Well it did work but for no apparent reason when loading it simply quits, when checking it's actually in the background but as soon as you click on it it quits again so not a good start.
