If you wanted to invest a little more in hardware, the Tracker2 could do 
this a little more cleanly.  You could set up a script (I probably need 
to write a PSR article on the new scripting engine) that'd fire off an 
APRS message (possibly an email) every time the contact closed, and then 
wait (for example) two minutes before re-arming the trigger.
