[aprssig] APRS high speed

Main problems here are that a higher data rate means less energy per bit,
and GPS receivers don't usually output more than one position per second
anyway.  A 1200 baud channel (assuming a continuous transmission) can handle
a 5-hz update rate just fine, if you use a reasonably efficient format.
So the question is, what are you trying to accomplish?

Been looking at radar technology the last few days and it begged me to ask
the question.
Has anyone thought / played with APRS mobile at high data rates ?
The planes uses pulsed transmissions and very fast.
On a much smaller scale i would like to play with hooking the GPS straight
into a LIPD module and use that - range 100 m
