APRS Survey 2000 - WOW, 600 votes - thank you

WOW! 600 folks have taken the APRS 2000 survey. I almost can't believe the 
great response. I was hoping for 250 responses and just got response 600. 
There is still 3 weeks remaining if you wish to vote. I am using the 
popular HR mailing lists, helping spread the word is appreciated. I am 
starting to think 1,000 is possible.

The demographics of the respondents is shown on a map at:

The survey is at:

For those who missed the announcement, I repeat it below.

APRS Survey 2000 Now Open

First let me thank nearly 100 APRS folks that provided excellent feedback 
for the APRS Survey 2000 web page. This project started 6 months with a 
simple idea. I got input from Bob B, and other APRS movers and shakers. I 
also got suggestions from amateurs on several APRS mailing lists. I hope 
the results of our efforts show.

I feel the need to emphasize that this is not a popularity contest. It is 
meant to foster communication between folks with similar equipment. I 
provide it as a service in the hopes that some "good" may come from the 
information. The survey is based on the honor system. To help prevent 
skewing the results, the results will not be posted until the survey period 
is over at the end November. However, you can see where the respondents 
came from on a map of the US. An amateur radio callsign is required, but 
you may remain anonymous if you wish.

Getting a large number of respondents will aid in providing an accurate 
cross-section of the APRS community. So thanks in advance to those that 
complete the survey and spreading the word.
