[aprssig] N1547C tracker

What about putting a tracker on a high altitude balloon so it can be tracked ?  Or a UAV, same reason.  Or how about puting a tracker on a runner or bicyclist in a race.  Or How about a remote tracker/telemetry system on a space station. Seems to me thats why APRS was invented. We live in a time of innovation.  Some just can't accept that.

  IMO, it is not a control link.  A control link controls the transmitter not a person that controls the transmitter.  The digipeaters I help out with are all controlled by the license holder going out to the site and unplugging the radio.  They don't have to call someone else to do it for them.

(edited for clarity)
This raises a great discussion on putting trackers on
vehicles of non-licensed persons.

Is it legal to have a non- licensed person turn a TRANSMITTING
amateur radio on and off and can a cel phone call function as a control
link?
