    That's exactly right, but when they found out where APRS was, they 
immediately assumed the worst.  But things seem to have quieted down and 
everybody does their own thing now.

    I'm still wishing APRS was on some other band where voice isn't so 
common.  Having a data burst on 144.39 every few minutes doesn't work 
really well if you're trying to operate on 146.52 FM OR 144.200 USB.  
I'm starting to investigate the possibility of setting up on 70 cm at 
9600 BPS -- it may not work out, but the old saying still applies -- 
"nothing ventured, nothing gained".
