  Abstract In this document we explore position tracking in the context of land based search and rescue operations, where we also may have a limited and unreliable communication channel. This is the case when using APRS (amateur radio tracking) in voluntary SAR services in Norway. We have looked more closely into trails of movements and how to plot these on the map to present informative real-time pictures to the incident commanders. A simple scheme is proposed to improve trails by piggybacking positions at the end of regular transmissions.Experiments show that a significant amount of positions are recovered. In some cases this can recover useful information, though it depends on the actual situation.
