There are NO APRS software nor Kenwood radios that send to the UNPROTO
path of "CQ via NOCALL".   Such packets are not APRS.

There is only one APRS frequency in Seattle or in the USA, 144.39.
I do think there was a known splinter group in Oregon that uses
APRS for a weather net on a single separate freqeuency where they already
had a digital network.

Thanks.  But What we need was your automatic packet rate for this
test.  Since you were  unsuccessful during the test, we need to know how
many packets you were transmitting... on the overnight test last night
(wee hours Wed morning)...
