Good article there! I'm all for standardization - including in APRS. Many in 
the US would be happy if "the rest of the world" bought into the "new" path 
settings currently being recommended in North America. Perhaps at least 
amateurs in the US will realize the beauty of simplicity and opt to start 
using metric units for APRS as well. It's just a matter of time before they 
realize the economic benefits of converting. As everywhere else, there will 
be some "growing pains" in the switch, but there's a huge economic advantage 
in not having to tool everything using two different standards. If they want 
to continue trading with the rest of the world, they will eventually change 
over. It might even happen in my lifetime - hi!
