That'll be close to working.   I'll experiment with the other tools.

The folks that started the APRS network had no prior experience
with packet.   They didn't know what was out there so they
did a lot of re-inventing...

They still don't know what else is available.  NIH syndrome.

I should have some "aprs" tunnels available soon...  It'll be fun
to see what we can do.
