Which is worse?

Is it worse to drive 5 MPH over the speed limit (unquestionably illegal) 
or have a tracker in a vehicle with no licensed amateur present 
(agruably legal)???

I hope all the folks concerned that the world will end if a non ham 
turns on a tracker follow the speed limit to the letter.   Remember, the 
V is squared...


Which is worse?

A tracker in a non-hams vehicle or a tracker in an amateur's vehicle? 
I'd suggest that having trackers (and not fully functional APRS 
equipment) in amateur's vehicles is a bigger issue then having trackers 
in other vehicles.

I recently read a comment that mentioned the famous POGO line, "We have 
met the enemy..."    Apparently another Pogo quote is:  "We are 
confronted by insurmountable opportunities."    Limiting our operation 
to trackers is not a way to embrace the opportunities at hand.
