Yes, but when all there is locally is a bunch of one-way
broadcasters and no human operators present that one can find,
one may have to go further to find a real human operator. 

In some areas where the missinterpretation of APRS as a one-way
broadcast vehicle tracking system has taken over APRS, I wonder
if anyone with a situation or emergency or need for contact
could ever really find any help?

Lets get back to communicating... Operator to operator..  Its
what ham radio is all about...
