  • SMS Text and Email via APRS (11/28/2017) - I have run APRS for awhile and have used it for tracking and sending messages to other APRS users and sending packets through the International Space Station, and while I have known that APRS was capable of sending SMS text and emails I had not looked into it until recently.
  • SMS Text and Email via APRS using APRSdroid (11/9/2017) - I have run APRS for awhile and have used it for tracking and sending messages to other APRS users and sending packets through the International Space Station, and while I have known that APRS was capable of sending SMS text and emails I had not looked into it until recently.
  • APRS and SMS Converge (7/15/2015) - The Canadian Amateur, July/August 2015 Issue - Page 42 - Shortly after obtaining my Amateur Radio licence, I became very interested in the Automatic Packet Reporting System (APRS) and its applications for emergency communications. I quickly discovered that I could send and receive APRS messages from areas that were well out of cellular range and I had the idea that it would be very useful if the APRS network could exchange messages with the cellular Short Message Service (SMS).
  • How to send SMS via APRS (4/26/2015) - How can someone send from one technology to another? In the case of APRS we use gateways. Gateways are hardware components setup by 3rd parties to act like a bridge between differing communication methods, in this case APRS and SMS. By sending a message to one of these gateways it will be retranslated to the other "side" and sent.
