In today's APRS (if you're using xastir, anyway) you can do that,  
only faster and without the wires.

We ran an ad-hoc 802.11 in my truck for the balloon chase last  
weekend.  My laptop had the TNCs (APRS on two frequencies) and shared  
that data via APRS server connection to another laptop in the  
vehicle.  Would work just the same at the command post, and not all  
the recipients have to be xastir of course; anything that can talk to  
an APRS-IS server can get the data.
