The T2 can be *patched* over the air at least.  It's just lacking memory 
to keep a whole new firmware image during reception.  The ADS-SR1 
simplex repeater can do that, though.

Is there any released information on the protocol used by the XDigi for 
on-air updates?  I was working on a protocol to do that that'd be 
suitable for updating satellites a piece at a time as bandwidth and 
line-of-sight are available.  That's going to require some management 
software on the sending side, and it'd be nice to standardize that if 
we're going to start doing firmware updates via APRS.
