Bob said:  "It is a fact that 85% of all APRS mobiles that receive
APRS while mobile are using D7 or D700's."

The key word there is probably "receive".  That doesn't knock out
HamHuds, but does knock out most of the rest of the Mic-E and all of
the NMEA-string trackers.  About all that would be left after that
would be PDA and Laptop-based trackers, which few and far between.
