High Altitude Baloon APRS Unit - Help Wanted

Hi there,

I'm Adrian from Space Club Perth.

We're putting a high altitude balloon project together and as part of our tracking redundancy we just bought an APRS add-on unit for our Raspberry Pi kit.
(Primary tracking is LoRa, worst case scenario is a satellite tracker that's independent of all our electronics.)

This is the APRS unit we bought. ... uct_id=122

Issue is, no one has any experience with APRS. We need experience with the rules, someone with a HAM license and who's familiar with APRS. Anyone out there willing to help us work this out?

You can reach out here: ... etup-group

Any advice or beginners guides would be appreciated here.
Have a good one!
