DIRECT STATION TRACKER LINK

In response to numerous requests, the Real Time Tracker has been rewritten to allow the use of a direct link from any web site to track an APRS station.

The following instructions explain how to create a link on your web site to display the Tracker Program that tracks your APRS station.

The Base CGI URL for the Tracker program is the following with aprscall being the APRS Station Callsign and SSID to be Tracked. (Example: k6ib-9)


This will display a Tracker Map in Single Map View mode for the station requested. The Icon, Map Type and Zoom Level will be set to the Default Values. You can Customize your map by adding additional information to the end of the Base URL as explained below.
