@M0YNG hey awesome! Thanks for the write up, nicely done! I'm definitely going to check out TNC-pi and direwolf. The SMS gateway works great over here but could be a USA thing.

@M0YNG oh and I would totally use the aprs to fediverse messaging bridge! I have a simple ifttt rule right now that posts messages to Twitter received from the sms aprs gateway

@drtelnet @M0YNG This is awesome, though I have to quibble with this:

The main goal of APRS is to get your packet into an iGate, and thus onto the Internet for people to see.

Absolutely not. The goal of APRS, as I understand it, predates the commercial internet, and is for data to travel around without having to use the internet at all.

@bamfic @drtelnet

Yes, I agree.
I think it would be fair to say that "these days it is often the goal of the operator to get their packet into an iGate, and thus onto the Internet for people to see"
?

@M0YNG this is a great intro to APRS! Thanks for sharing.

@M0YNG Awesome, thanks!

I love the theme as well, reminds me of hackthebox.eu.

Time to grab a TNC-Pi I think.

@M0YNG thanks for this, just got a chance to read!
