That's a useful mode of operation in some circumstances (e.g., on a 
frequency other than 144.39).  It isn't Scott's problem if someone 
abuses the system with an openTracker.

Maybe a warning pop-up of some sort when a user configures a TX 
interval of less than 1 minute would be in order, but that's the most 
we should expect of developers, IMO.
