Hmmm... I have tried to tackle this one but I can forget that here. The wifi 
will not support an  APRS stream, let alone a full bandwidth one. So someone 
else will have to bite the bullet.

You need to connect to the full APRS stream (e.g. telnet rotate.aprs.net 10151 
or telnet ahubswe.net 2023), and send a user CALL pass NUMBER.
The number is generated in the server, and is different for every CALL. That 
will verify you as a user.
You can connect only to one sAPRS erver with 1 callsign, so ue an SSID (PA0R-1).

Then just grep the messages with PSKAPRS to a file... that will get you 
started. I can help with the regexps to pull the data out, but I cannot access 
the data where I am.

The pskmail servers are now connected to a limited stream containing only 
messages (inbound) to enable messaging. Outbound the position is sent to the 
backbone. I have done this to leave some bandwidth for your XYL when she wants 
to chat with her friends....

PS: I will take away the client-server linkup requirement on inbound position
