One of the best possibilities for APRS refinement are the 6 RR bits in every
packet known as the RR bits. I have proposed that they be used for a
Priority bit, an Operator present bit, and a Preempted bit. There are 3
more still available. See the topic in the APRS1.2 spec proposals:
Or more specifically: http://aprs.org/aprs12/RR-bits.txt
We think these are all backwards compatible and welcome suggestions for
their use to maximum benefit.
