Sorry, I hit send too soon. The other point I wanted to make is that  
the APRS Internet System was not intended to be, and never was, a  
hamradio only network. From when I first conceived of it I wanted it  
to serve as an ambassador for amateur radio, one that showed a new  
audience of people the value of amateur radio. It has succeeded in  
this regard, I have heard from many people who became hams after being  
introduced to the possibilities through the internet side of APRS. A  
large number of the users of the APRS IS are not hams (yet) and that  
is not a bad thing.
