I hope some of you can help use APRS to track this Ford Focus EV from NY to
LA next week?
For example, if the object's name is FOCUS-EV then one should be able to
send an APRS RF message to "FOCUS-EV" and the local IGate should respond
with an up-to-date current position for that callsign.
But this assumes that the IGate treats OBEJCTS and STATIONS the same as
*intended* by APRS (some don't). We need to find these weaknesses and fix
