[aprssig] APRN status?

I don't know if  anyone ever built and shared an APRN site.  I
still think the concept is dynomyte.  http://aprs.org/aprn.html

Idea was to TAG  SSTV images (could be JPEG or anything that can
be easily transmitted over ham radio to an APRN web site).  The
whole idea is to have an RF and electronic means to TAG where
the photo was tken, by whom, and some text.  A perfect packet

Then anyone anywhere at any time could go to the APRN web page
and see the picture within seconds of it having been taken.

The original concept was for the Kenwood handheld SSTV camera
that could transmit images over ANY FM radio to the APRN site.

Again, don't think anyone did it. (We did it manually during
football runs, but after a few years it was a lot of work)...
