Wow, that's a cool example of what you can do with just 
ONE tracker.

People who do things well are doomed to doing lots
of work! *grin*

Oh! Hey! Small world. :)

I don't know what the plans are for Rally Tennessee this
year. (http://www.rallytennessee.com/ ) I'm sure Tony
will be in charge of communications. I know that he has
_wanted_ to implement APRS for the last five years or so.
I would guess that there's not a digipeater up there, but
you would probably know better than I. We were all running
around like silly chickens at that event... we sure could
have used some resource tracking.

Cheers,
Anders
