What custom ("non standard") frequency are you on about? 144.800 MHz  
is the correct frequency for APRS world-wide. It's only the USA that  
uses a custom (non-standard) one!

Sometimes it gets really frustrating that Americans can be so  
parochial -- always thinking that their view/regulations/frequency/ 
digipeating is the only one that's right. Someone has gone to the  
effort to organise a self-contained device, on the right frequency for  
people outside the USA, and you seem to be detracting from it and  
their efforts. Good on them!
