Looks like this one stirred some of us up .. I wont say any more except last time I saw APRS used (Horus 9) the lower level posits gated to the IS came predominantly from Adrians vehical as he appeared to be running an Igate in his chase 4WD (5ZSN-12) connected to the Internet via 3G or Satellite I would imagine, while out in the Mallee. If he does this again and its reliable then everything else is sort of irrelavant anyway.

Just looking back through the Horus 9 RF logs heres a sample of what it was sending when I first saw it direct here
