    Its called APRS. Heres a good link APRS LINKS
    The person you want to talk to is the moderator for this forum. You can use a gps to transmit your coordinates via radio and you can be tracked via the net or other RF linked users.

    Yes, I've done it several times and have helped several others get trackers going. Here's a findu.com link of my truck around houston.

    And here's a shameless plug for my APRS database search page where you can easily find stations using findu.com's database. I need to update the default callsigns because it uses my old call but if you plug in AD5OU-14 you can see where I am.

    If you need any help feel free to ask. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    And good luck with the exam.
