One of the most entertaining links to showcase is the Google Maps APRS site.  APRS or Automatic Packet Reporting System lets you track HAM operators by their call sign.  You can enter a call sign or city for a locator, find who you’re looking for and track them down the road in real-time as they drive.  Extremely accurate, and very quick to update, you are able to see who you’re looking for as they check in from tower to tower.

If you choose, you can also join the APRS-Canada group and send your position reports radios to the group.  It will also allow you to send and receive private text messages from APRS call signs and the APRS network.
