What is OAMS?
OAMS – pronounced (Ohms) – Is the “Off-Air Message Service” of GridTracker and Log4OM. It gives us the ability to have users share their “On-Air” status with other users, user to user chat and real-time spotting.
The name OAMS is credited to Evan W8KJR, who threw it out when we were looking for a name for the service in a round-table discussion. Beyond Ohms… it’s also the acronym for the “Orbit Attitude and Maneuvering System” of the NASA Mercury program, which is pretty cool too!
