Ahhh but a tiny trak or opentrak in mic-e mode is great for skywarn.... just
hook a TNC up to monitor the output of your local repeater and collect the
packet racket from teh mic-e bursts and relay them over to 144.39.  If you
use call sign swapping on the TNC (like a kpc3 or T2 tracker), you can make
the callsign of the TNC the numeric equivalent of the frequeency of the
repeater.... Ideally, the first hop W1-1 will be call sub'ed with the
repeater freq and then you know how to contact him by voice.  And when a guy
says he sees a funnel cloud to his west, you know where that is!

In theory there is no difference between practice and theory.
