Being able to spot yourself on an activation is really handy. SOTA activators can use the popular APRS2SOTA service, however no such service exists for HEMA … Until now.

I have recently written software to obtain APRS messages sent to the destination <HEMA> or <APRS2HEMA> and post qualifying messages to the HEMA Spotting Engine.

The service is very much in Beta testing but initial tests show it works. At this stage anyone who might like to use the service drop me a message via twitter @softwareguru1 or scot dot forshaw at gmail dot com .
