Just require all UDP stations to first send a position-packet on RF
with AX25 for the validation.


PS.  No, I'm not joking..    The whole Internet mesh thing is already
done for the XO and other Wireless devices in a far slicker manner
then APRS-IS.  See my previous posting with the links to the XO chat
and network system.  We need to focus on what we do with AMATEUR RADIO
which is what we do that's special.

Now coming up with AX-UDP packets that XO's and other wifi devices can
generate and  exchange would be a good step forward.  We've talked
about it for years and aprsdigi has it built in.  Maybe it's time to
revisit some aprs on Wifi scheme.
