It's funny you bring this up Scott, but I feel the same about APRS 
and other digital modes.  There isn't anything different about them 
since they still use an FM carrier.  They are really only one user at 
a time.  If one station decides to put UI-View into Meteor mode and 
run 50 watts (for example) it still means one station only.  I see 
this far too many times.

That's why I still like SSB linear transponders.
