Did I understand correctly, form the discussion in class, that in order for APRS to function the rig needs to have a GPS unit connected up to it? That makes perfect sense of course as obviously the rig needs to know where it is at in order to report its position.

I have neither a GPS unit nor a HAM rig yet but am weighing my options. I like the benefit of the APRS for various reasons, just want to make sure I understand what else is needed to make it really work
