Thanks Greg - That does sound like an option.
Just to be clear on my personal needs and thus why I was looking at the FLDIGI solution - I do not want a tracker that is constantly pumping out beacons as I move - It is for " I have set up camp and I am alive or, I am changing plans and diverting to X etc.
The small and non insurmountable obstacles are as follows for the FLGIDI solution:
* correctly formatting the packet 'string' for the mode you wish to use - PSK63 or MFKS16 etc.
* Checksum - this is a small 4 (I think) character block that is added to the end of the string.
Both of these can be seen if you look at the screen output for say DroidPSK using PSK-63 and the APRS macro or decode using FLDIGI on rx of some one else's packet.
Once you set up in the field you can hand type the string from a template - then the checksum needs to be added - this is static ONLY if the station is static - each location needs a new one. And I am assuming each message that contains different text needs a new one.
