rdfs:comment

The Automated Packet Reporting System (APRS) vocabulary is an ontology for modeling APRS call signs, stations, and beacon messages. This ontology is compatible with and complemented by elements of schema.org. Some of the term definitions have been borrowed from the APRS protocol specification at http://www.aprs.org/doc/APRS101.PDF.
