Hi Ray,

I'm a lurker on the OZAPRS list as I'm interested, but have never got 
around to actually implementing APRS.

I don't really have anything to contribute except to congratulate you on 
your Raspberry Pi post. Its one of the most interesting and informative 
mailing list posts I've ever read. I'll be watching for progress reports 
with interest!
