And that's exactly what I've got my sister working on.  Is aprs.net still
available for such a project?  I'd like a page that makes it immediately
clear what APRS is all about, with sub-pages on various technical aspects
(digi configuration, available hardware and software, etc).  Keri should be
able to write copy and handle the overall presentation, and I'm willing to
pay for graphic design.  Of course, if any other for-profit APRS concerns
want to contribute to the effort, that'd be nice, too.
