Well done Bob what you are saying is true very little real time action on
APRS,here in Trinidad and Tobago real time action is alive short text
message always on the go any thing happening you can sure to see it on APRS
map so Bob Wb4APR we support your call 100% ,apparently lots of hams have
APRS as door stoppers .and not what it is intended for.
