APRS audio tones are adaptable to any band. I was going to use the audio
side of a 2.4 GHz TV stream to transmit APRS for a NASA test of a Mars
airplane prototype flying at 30 km altitude. We didn't do the test but I
mocked up the system and demonstrated it at my club's (PAARA, in Menlo Park,
CA) field day operation in 2006.
