Exactly. Every couple years this pops up like an APRS hemorrhoid. Unattended trackers, weather stations, and the like are telemetry stations, and therefore fully legal under FCC rules. For proof one needs nothing more than to realize that APRS has been a wildly popular part of ham radio for the last 15+ years, a time of increased FCC scrutiny of the service, and there has never been an NAL issued.
