After looking at the page, one of the suggestions was to put part of that 
traffic onto UHF.  

Do we have a set UHF frequency?  We've discussed this before in the past.  
We have an APRS voice calling frequency for UHF IIRC.  However, do we have 
a frequency to use for data?  If we don't have a 144.39 equiv UHF then I'm 
not ready to start advocating or pushing UHF.  For starters I'd rather 
avoid QSY'ing down the road if possible.  Likewise, it'd help to have a 
this freq is set aside for UHF APRS, much like 144.39 is.  That way if 
there are conflicts there is at least some aspect of coordination.
