I'll be happy to take this off list since it's not specific to APRS but
you can read the main website page for more details about your question.

Actually the amount I charge is for my labor to convert the data into a
usable form, the equipment needed to do the above and the bandwidth
required for me to give it to folks. Trust me..I'm not making much, if
anything on the deal. What I do make Im trying to give back to the folks
that make it possible.
I'll be happy to field any concerns off list. I don't want this to turn
into a "he did this for PR" thing. It was simply meant as a way to say
"hey cool! Look what APRS is able to do!"
