APRS was built on using existing equipment. For many people, that is 
important, but how long do we continue to use old technology? Another 5 
years? 25? 100? What we have works for now, and does a surprisingly good 
job considering the limitations. However, I suspect we won't be running 
1200 bits per second with a maximum of 50-65 users within earshot and 
having to fiddle with paths forever. Change will come. It's just a 
matter of when.
