I can see it now. You turn on your D-7 and send a posit and for the next
30 minutes or more the network is totally clogged as an IGATE attempts to
deliver the MSG's it has accumulated for the last 7 days.
APRS=REAL-TIME LOCAL TACTICAL (over an hour old forget it.)
A cellphone is much more useful for short text messaging anyway. Why do we
need/want to make APRS emulate a cellphone.
Me thinks tis a bad idea.
