... and an APRS-TT infrastructure that simply doesn't exist.  How many FM 
voice repeaters have actually implemented APRS-TT decoders and are gating 
the data gleaned to the local APRS digi, igate, or directly to the 
APRS-IS?

   Bob, I've got to hand it to you.  Your brain comes up with innovative 
communication schemes several orders of magnitude faster than the rest of 
the ham radio community collectively can implement them.
