APRS Information

Methow Valley APRS Activity in the Past 24 House


We now have APRS support in the Methow Valley.  The Mazama iGate / Digipeater is operational.  APRS coverage is from just East of Washington Pass (14.5 miles LOS to digi) on Hwy 20 down toward Twisp if you have a 40 watt mobile with 3dB gain roof-mounted antenna.  This provides approximately 40 miles of Hwy 20 coverage in the North Methow Valley.  We also have DyerHL Digipeater located above Brewster/Pateros for some South Methow Valley coverage.

Best Web Viewer (simplest)  --  http://aprs.fi/  or directly:  http://aprs.fi/?call=a/NO7RF-3  This will bring up the Forester.  The a/NO7RF-3 in the window on the page means "auto-refresh" the page to track the movement.  Click around as there's plenty on this page.

If you are interested in the current Methow Valley digipeater coverage, here are 3 maps showing: Mazama to Twisp to to Pateros and Brewster.  The coverage shown is very good from Mazama to Twisp and down to Methow.  There are a few miles of holes in the coverage down from Twisp to Hwy 97/Pateros and little coverage past Pateros to Brewster.

NOTE:  Hwy 20 from Hwy 153 has not been fully tested but is good to about 1 mile west of Loup Loup & very spotty further East.
