It would be nice to see some open source stuff

Make a packet head that allows for up to say 1000 different types of messages in plain text at high speed and go for it

Gps corrections the works

Something to keep in mind: respect the laws of your nation regarding amateur radio use; those laws apply to APRS too.  If you do that, also remember that APRS-IS interconnects networks world-wide (some of those nations have much stricter laws than the nation you reside in) and -all- packets on APRS-IS are potentially viable to be gated to RF in any of those nations.  I agree with Billy; just because it can be done doesn't make it something that should be done (or can even be done legally in some countries).

I am stating that APRS-IS interconnects amateur radio APRS networks world-wide and consideration of that fact should go into anyone's thought process when attempting to use it for non-amateur radio purposes.  I am also stating that anyone using APRS on their local amateur radio RF are bound by the laws of their country regarding amateur radio and should take that into consideration as well.
