There seems to be too much work to get out of the 'someone' land
to get things done. Not 'an issue', but a real problem.

Co-working, you know, something your people over there were famous 
in the days bygone. APRS is international.

(No, I'm not the infamous 'someone', but I park next to him every
working day...)

And, how should one apply for an APRS designator like APNU**?
And to whom? My question was never answered...

PS. Curt, this wasn't criticism to you, you do a tremendous job in
XASTIR, and technical input seems to be appreciated :)
