[aprssig] Another Bootlegger Using APRS As a Commercial AVL System ???

It cracks me up when bootleggers use APRS, a system that not only puts
your position on the air, but also the Internet for all to see.  They
could just be hams that don't know what they are doing and don't have
their call sign in their packet.

Byonics has no liability here.  Anyone can by a tinytrack and use it
for any thing they want, but to use it with an amateur radio
transceiver you would need an amateur radio license.
