I agree.  This is a huge vast opportunity due to the bazillions
of surplus text pagers on the market that have been completely
abandoned due to cellphones and ipods, etc.

But we just have not yet seen any ham with the knowledge, talent
and time to figure out how to develop this.  If someone can
figure them out, then it would be trivial to interface them to
the global APRS network. 

They shouldn't cost more that say $5 each...

Anyone?
