APRS SIG,

While I thoroughly enjoyed the idea interchange and interactive design 
effort yesterday in the attempt to bring EchoLink objects to the APRS 
community (both -IS and RF), I regretfully conclude that it isn't 
feasible with the proposed approach at the current time.

I have mothballed the source code that generated the objects (only 2 
test objects were injected yesterday, one with bad supplied coordinate 
and the other in my local area) and no others should be forthcoming from 
my code.

I will continue to consider some of the suggestions like a queriable 
message server and a dedicated method of delivering these objects 
directly to interested IGate operators with minimal configuration 
required on their part.

This has certainly been a learning experience for me.  For now, I'll go 
back to passively monitoring the infrastructure and generating my usage 
graphs like:

But for the immediate term, you'll find me at the top of Springer 
Mountain GA this coming Sunday morning!
