I thought that had been hashed out many times before and there isn't
any problem with a ham placing a tracker on an asset they wish to
track... with of course the consent of the owner if that asset happens
to be someone else's plane or vehicle etc. Dave K7GPS placed the
tracker on their plane and it was publicly announced on the NWAPRS
list. See the link that Ron mentioned earlier...
www.nwaprs.info/n1547cexpedition.htm. When I look at
www.findu.com/cgi-bin/find.cgi?N1547C I plainly see Dave's callsign
mentioned in the status text. Viewing the raw data at
www.findu.com/cgi-bin/raw.cgi?call=N1547C&time=1 I see the status
text going out every so many transmissions. I would guess that it's
set for every ten transmissions, but some beacons were probably not
heard. The path of WIDE2-2 could probably be backed off to WIDE2-1 but
that's just my opinion.
