Technically, yes it would work. But AO-16 is currently designated for voice 
operations, and CW mixed in with the voice users might get you some 
nastygrams from the other users.

Pretty much the same answer as #1. Before the memory system crashed, you 
could digipeat through AO-16. Since then, we are limited to a bent-pipe 
setup best suited for voice. We may get to the point with IO-26 where 
digipeating is enabled.

You could try PCsat for 1200 baud APRS, or use MixW and your computer 
soundcard for 9600 baud on GO-32.
