Watch how busy a channel becomes when people try to connect:
Connecting to something that isn't there = 10 packets in a couple minutes.
Now add a digi that you need to get anywhere more than 10 miles around you:
20 packets and this all in 5 minutes or so.
This is one station I'm talking about ;-)
The APRS design doesn't work for conventional packet. I recall that this
all started on 145.01 and channelized because of congestion in the late '80s
