That's one small step for APRS Caching, one giant leap for ham radio operators.
From now on we provide GeoCaches from the OpenCaching platform as APRS Caches. This is going to be awesome for all the active GeoCachers under you. If you are on the way to find some GeoCaches, you now have to make sure that you bring an APRS-ready device with you to log your GeoCache finds to the APRS Caching system by sending out a position beacon via APRS. If you are in a range of 50 meters near the GeoCache your find will get logged automatically via the position beacon.
This is just like killing two birds with one stone ;)

Das ist ein kleiner Schritt für APRS Caching, ein riesiger Sprung für Funkamateure
Ab sofort stellen wir alle verfügbaren GeoCaches der OpenCaching Plattform als APRS Caches zur Verfügung. Insbesondere ist dies für die aktiven GeoCacher unter euch interessant. Alles was ihr bei eurer GeoCache Tour tun müsst ist ein APRS-fähig Gerät mitzunehmen und beim Fund eines GeoCaches eine Positionsbake über APRS auszusenden. Bist du innerhalb eines Radius von 50 Meter des GeoCaches wird dein Fund automatisch über die Positionsbake geloggt.
Es ist wie zwei Fliegen mit einer Klappe zu schlagen ;)
