    Subject: [aprssat] First APRS beacon from Antarctica



    To my knowledge, Ronald Ross (KE6JAB) became the first APRS user ever
    to be tracked in Antarctica.



    On 14 November 2000 at 15:18:20, Sunsat logged the following beacon:

    KE6JAB-7>W1S1S3,APRSAT: `~KIl n>Now at Blue 1



    This translates to:

    KE6JAB-7, No. Triang, 71.31.33S, 008.47.45E


    As soon as we have solved the last few
    technical issues, his data will appear at findu.com. We should be
    ready when he deploys his weather stations, at which time I'll post
    the relevant links.
