At 60 MPH, that's one beacon every mile. If one is driving 60 MPH, 
it's likely one is driving on a limited-access highway with gradual 
curves and few opportunities to change direction. That being the 
case, is one beacon per mile really necessary? It seems like a 1 
minute beacon rate would flood the network with beacons that don't 
add much more information over previous beacons.
