YES!!! When I started working on the OpenTRAC spec, I tried repeatedly to
contact the big 3, and never got ANY response to ANY correspondence, not
even an automated reply! I very much want input from the manufacturers, and
would willingly work with them to improve things, whether that means
OpenTRAC, expanded ARPS support, or something entirely new.

Sign me up if you think you can get such a group together. TAPR apparently
doesn't have such aspirations anymore. If anyone knows how to get through
to the decision makers at any of the radio companies, that might be a start.
I'd fly to Japan at my own expense to sit down and talk to these people if
they'd actually listen.
