Yes.  It makes a nice pre-planned temporary system, into which
any mobile with an APRS digipeater radio can participate without
having to reconfigure....

Unless of course, you don't want every mobile to be a digi
(which can be the case in large conflaguratinos of mobiles all
in one area....  Then use something else.
