It should work fine for 9k6 APRS.  That's where there are packets one
at a time..   It fails when real data is pushed at it -- with real
data being multiple packets all together.    Folks have made it work
even for real data by carefully limiting operation to a window of 1
packet per time.

No dedicated "APRS" activity, but like Stephen said, the national
packet channel is 50.62 MHz and some are using that for APRS style
