Greetings from OH land,

Just wondering: the market of APRS-capable commercial rigs has
been extremely quiet. With the introduction of GPS modules,
integration of GPS to a VHF/UHF handheld should not be a major
task. OK, APRS users are a niche market inside a niche market
of amateur radio to equipment manufacturers, but still..not a
single integrated 2m/70cm APRS-capable GPS-equipped handheld?

Reasonably priced, that would be a hit among the ham emergency
rescue service community, worldwide..
