[aprssig] APRS - They don't get it (over on qrz.com)

APRS happens to be really good at tracking, that and weather have been
the 'killer apps' for APRS.

I like just listening to 144.39 with PL 100 sometimes, even w/o
TNC/Computer.  I don't find too many folks transmitting with the PL,
but they are there sometimes.

I'd like to get a D710 in the car with a GPS for tracking, but more so
I can see the information being transmitted by other APRS stations.

I don't see the internet integration as a necessity, but a nice add
on, although I wish there was a way to filter out a lot of those non
ham weather stations from findu.

I would like to use APRS a little more as a support tool for ARES.  We
aren't a very active group here in Frederick County, but we try to put
good tools to use in our planning.

QRZ.com isn't all bad.  The Q&A forum is a lot better than talk.
Things were really bad back before the FCC stopped Morse code testing.
 It would be better if you could ignore some users though!
