" USNG is not defined over the whole world, so the choice of UTM grid in
this case doesn't matter:  It is the same over the area of interest."

How arrogant!!! IF there was any common sense to using APRS in SAR
operations, you would adopt and implement the datum that is being USED by
those organizations, NOT what YOU want! Like it or not, USNG is what DHS /
FEMA mandated back in 2008 and what the SAR / USAR community is adopting.
Want to stand on the sidelines, don't adopt the current methodology.
