> Congrats to Bob and all of you across the globe 
> involved in aprs advancement...

I am humbled, and I notice that they noted the...

>> recent...expanded... messaging ability of [APRS]...

Just concidently today I updated the CQSRVR and AVRS web pages
to take advantage of AE5PL's global CQSRVR
(www.aprs.org/cqsrvr.html) and APRS messaging capabiltiy to
allow mobile users to call global CQ's for Echolink and IRLP
contacts (www.aprs.org/avrs.html).  

For example... When I am mobile and monitoring the local
Echolink repeater, I send out this message to CQSRVR:

CQ AVRS Bob on 147.075 EL#236562

By using this message to logon to the AVRS group at CQSRVR I
will get similar messages from anyone else that is looking for a
contact via AVRS.  

The ultimate goal of AVRS is to make the Echolink or IRLP
connections automatic simply by end-to-end user callsigns via
APRS, but we are not there yet.  But getting proficient at
Echolink or IRLP is a skill we all need to get familiar with
(including me!)
