I looked at this in depth last year. I'm playing with a rather comprehensive RV management system, and I wanted a way to send alerts like alarms via RF. I decided PICSAG would be too much work with too little assurance of success to be worth the effort, so I settled on packet to a VX-9 on a simplex freq. I'd much rather have a small beeper than the VX on my belt. It is about time for beepers to be retro-cool now anyway!
So I'd throw some money at this project too if someone decided to take it on.
