• APRSThursday

    From Phigan@VERT/TACOPRON to All on Friday, December 01, 2023 03:14:43
    A while back I was decoding APRS for some days, and I noticed that on Thursdays there were a bunch of fun messages coming through. Some of them with the tag "#APRSThursday". Has anyone else on here noticed this or even participated?

    Since then I've tried to tune in on those days, but I don't always remember. Yesterday, though, there were very few of them. Wonder why that is. Maybe holidays time? But in past weeks there were even messages from Europe!

    Interesting. I try to monitor APRS as much as possible here in hthe Denver Metro Area, but I never see messages like that.

    Check it out on Thursday! I even made a random contact across town once.
    They were using PinPoint for Windows. I was using APRSdroid.

    Have you been listening on Thursdays? Have you seen any messages like I was talking about?

    It's Thursday again! :) .. I set up a capture since last night. Haven't looked through it all yet, but definitely seen some random messages with that tagline already.
