Arnie,

I failed to mention it earlier, but one of my sources of information for
APRS was Med Units dispatched via a Tickets server set up for the Detroit
Free Press Marathon. Although Tickets was available to the voice net control
operators, I do not believe they interacted with it as much as I did. We are
(slowly) melting the two together and refining the system. But, yes, Tickets
can be a good supplement to the APRS operations.
