Personally, I think we as Amateurs should occupy every bit of any 
allocated band space that we can!  IF we don't occupy it, the various 
regulatory people will simply say that we are not using it so.....we 
end up loosing it.
I sure would be interested in 6m APRS, but I would try a goofy idea I 
have, to use SSB @ 300 baud.. ;-)
