This is a bit like Bob's rfid-aprs concept, but with bluetooth phones 
which users already carry around:

BPRS, Bluetooth Position Reporting System, is a program which can announce 
the presence of amateur radio operators at a certain location (club 
station, hamfest, swap meet) on the APRS-IS based on the presence of their 
Bluetooth enabled devices.

Runs on Linux, install instructions are for Ubuntu/Debian.

Has been in use for quite a while at a couple of locations, appears to 
work.
