Quite the contrary. We only need one QRZ server independent of whether you
are asking about an OBJECT or a STATION or anything else. You are simply
asking QRZ about XXXXXX. The response would be the same. You'd get back an
ITEM-in-MSG with the APRS -IS knowledge on that XXXXXX.
This is why it should be its own FUNCTIONAL service andnot just another
format of a special case of something buttoned onto an OBJ server.
The FUNCTIONS should be independent. Does not matter where they reside.
