How APRS used by Raynet
Operators and vehicles equipped with APRS can be tracked by the event control station. This information can then be used to deploy the nearest operator to an incident. At a charity event this may be to the site of a medical emergency or to a rest centre during a major incident.
The screenshot below shows the APRS tracks of various mobiles during the 2015 Farleigh Hospice 'Walk for Life' event. You will see that different mobiles have differing colour tracks which allows the control station to differentiate between the mobiles.
This screenshot below shows the route which Owen M3OIL took when sweeping the Orchid Cycle Ride in June 2015. Also visible (in green) is the short route sweep track by Paul M0LOM.
The more members who operate APRS, will assist event controllers with decision making and planning.
