The past few years I have been at Dayton/Xenia hamvention the main aprs frequency of 144.390 has been wall to wall position beacons. If users wanted to send situational awareness txt messages using an ht it would be very difficult. Hamvention has set up a cell group texting service for cell phones that works very well. It seems we are missing a great opportunity to use aprs radios for some messaging while on the fairgrounds. I'm not saying use aprs exclusively but it would be a good learning tools for aprs txt. I wonder if an alternate frequency for aprs ht' to use for txt messages would be a good idea? Maybe 144.990 as mentioned on bobs aprs.org website.
