Very true.  I Just cannot see how you can promote
continuing to transmit a depricated/obsolete format 
that cannot be seen by 28% of all users and
85% of all mobiles (that can receive objects) as being
good for the future of APRS?

Further, I think what is detrimental to the future of
APRS is continuing to insist on your forced 
obsolescence of the kenwood, when there are
3 ways that XASTIR can transmit the precision it wants
and can still be 100% compatible with the kenwoods.

The SPEC has kept up with this situation by offering
a solution for the 1' precision that is 100% backwards
compatible (the !DAO! format.  I wish other software 
that can much more easily upgrade than the mobile 
Kenwood users would do the same.
