APRS blir mer og mer populært, nå også ifm DMR. Men, husk at APRS er toveis og står for Automatic Packet Radio System, og er derfor mer enn et posisjonsverktøy.

For de som aktiverer APRS så bør vi også huske på korrekt valg av SSID. Siden APRS via DMR normalt er enveis, så bør du her benytte SSID -12. Se tabellen under.


SSID RECOMMENDATIONS:
It is very convenient to other mobile operators or others looking at callsigns flashing by, to be able to recognize some common applications at a glance.

Here are the recommendations for the 16 possible SSID’s (the limit of 16 comes from the 4 bits available in the AX.25 protocol.

Note, The SSID of zero is dropped by most display applications. So a callsign with no SSID has an SSID of 0.
