Hummh... the ?APRSH query was in the fundamental 
definition of APRS.  I hope all major software 
included it.  Users need to have expectations that
the APRS system will respond as it was designed to.

It would amaze me if any APRS software did not
keep heard statistics for each station for at least
24 hours.  Knowing the  availability of surrounding
local APRS stations is critical in any local event or
network...   24 hours seems to match the human
schedule  pretty well...   ***Especially on HF where
propogation is diurnal...       de WB4APR, Bob
