[aprssig] Tracking down a mobile aprs station -call freq?

Thats why in 2004 we added the VOICE frequency field to all APRS mobile
position reports.  So you could see what voice frequency the operator was
monitoring and call him.  Too bad more than a decade later most operators
still do not do this... note even the ones that have Kenwwod and Yaesu's
that can do it automatically!

I share your frustration.   Bob, Wb4APR
