[aprssig] Automatic Voice RFelay System (AVRS) and ALLSTAR

Whoops! Do you have me mixed up with someone else? ;-)

What about non-periodic messages at state-change times only? Since both the Echolink/Allstar/IRLP/??? gateways and the AVRS are up 24x7 and connected via reliable wired Internet links, they don't need constant beaconing.

Also, I note that there are several IRLP and Echolink gateways in my area that are beaconing anyway (not my doing) and being gated to the APRS-IS. If they put the additional state that AVRS needs in their beacons, it would be done (just more difficult for the AVRS server to filter out of the APRS-IS flood).

Up to $.03. ;-)

That would be wonderful, but when I offered to periodically update APRS 
objects for EchoLink nodes, I was resoundingly shot down because of the 
increased load on the APRS-IS.

I am considering a QRU-like server for these objects that would probably 
be the best hope.  (http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/doc:qru) As a matter of 
fact, since you've already got all the data in your server, and are 
already fielding APRS messages, you'd be a shoe-in for implementing such 
a thing.  Drop me a line for details if you're interested.  It's really 
straight-forward.

Then we wouldn't need a back-door URL to get the data; AVRS could just use a type-filtered feed to get all the gateway beacons (regardless of which net they are on).
