    Our state legislature (the best money can buy) here in Illinois has 
decided that it is illegal for the driver of a vehicle to be able to see an 
onboard TV screen or computer screen while operating a vehicle. This is very 
discouraging to me as I have been running APRS on a laptop, usually on the 
passenger seat, for many years.
    This kind of puts the kibosh on running a lot of the newer gear that 
have a screen built in. I don't know if anyone has challenged this ill 
conceived law yet.
