Well, I was surprised totally that Bob had a mostly positive thing to 
say about your state!! He usually can find nothing good to say about how 
someone other than himself operates APRS. ;-)

WE in TX sometimes use long paths on purpose - the goal is NOT to get to 
the internet, but to watch others moving around several hundreds of 
miles away - where 3 or 4 mobiles have full computers and maps.

At the moment though, I'm not a car computer station - just a tracker.

Take care,
