APRS: Automatic Position Reporting System
Do you have an event that you need to track or keep track of where someone is located? Like a horse ride, off- road trail ride or a walk? We can put a device on your horse or vehicle and track it to a map (like the one below) on our computer. We can give you real time tracking, to keep you advised on where your people are and about how long before they return. We attach one of these yellow boxes to your vehicle or horse and track it! We do not charge for this service, however we do appreciate donations to help maintain the equipment. We try to stay with in 50 miles of Wickenburg. The quality of the maps depend on the availability of internet access. Contact us for tracking at: firstname.lastname@example.org
