I use APRS to report my wx station stats using a Radio Shack HT.  I had it 
setup in the car at one time and could track the vehicle online.  Pretty neat 
but saw no real value to me at the time.

Hi, guys -

After reading a brief article in the September QST, I have a slightly renewed 
interest in APRS as it pertains to emcomm.  The prices seem to have dropped 
quite a bit since the last time I looked.  Any value to the MARS program?
