I think it is due to it connecting directly (via a GPRS internet 
connection) to the worldwide APRS system via the APRS-IS system. If you 
have a validated connection to an APRS server, your position frames can 
be gated to RF. I suppose an un-licenced person could use it, but 
without validation their positions will only be visible to net connected 
APRS users.
A private user could also set up their own javAPRSSrvr and make their 
own private APRS network with EYTrakers totally separate to the amateur 


On the web page there is a big fat note stating
