[aprssig] 9600b UHF APRS IS THE FUTURE OF APRS

IMHO, no.
APRS succeeded because there was tons of 2 meter 1200 bps gear sitting 
around about to be thrown away. When was the last time you used 2 meter 
packet to check your email? APRS brilliantly used this cheap stuff to do 
something new and amazing. I am one of the many that would not likely 
invest in 9600 bps equipment. My pet peeve is that there is no 10 meter 
FM 1200 BPS packet frequency. For rural areas *that* is the ticket with 
plenty of surplus hi power "low band" commercial stuff available.
