Point taken.

I recall playing with some APRS PDA software several years back, hooked 
into the 'net via WiFi.  APRS-CE and Pocket APRS.     Any new 
development?   I've also seen some JAVA apps for cellphones similar to APRS.

I remember dragging an original WinCE Casio A-11 with a KPC-3 and a 
Magellan Trailblazer XL hooked to a Yaesu FT-51R on a few backpacking trips 
in Arizona.  That was like 11 or 12 years ago?    Good times.  Good 
times...  ;)

It almost seems like APRS has gone backwards since then.
